When we manage money God’s way, the results are life-changing
Tithing is simply giving the first tenth of all your income before taxes or anything else is taken out. When you tithe, you are making an investment into the Kingdom of God and saying to God “I trust you to supply everything in my life.” It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income before taxes or anything else comes out. Tithing is a way to worship God by showing Him that we trust His promises. It’s also a way to protect our hearts from greed. By bringing back to God what is rightfully His, we remind ourselves that everything we have comes from Him. The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t outgive God. We know tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!
"The earth is the LORD's, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it..." (Psalm 24:1)
As Christians, we believe that we are stewards of God's resources because He is the owner of all that we have. Throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided. His Word tells us that giving is an act of worship that should be done with a spirit of thanksgiving.
Anyone can give, but as believers in Jesus Christ we are called to give to further His kingdom. God gave us life through his son, Jesus Christ, and we respond with generous, sacrificial, and cheerful hearts in all aspects of life, including our finances.
