Tithing

titheI read a couple of articles about tithing this past week.  It essentially rehashed the same age old argument of how much to give.

tithe2Quite simply, a tithe is a tenth of whatever is to be given.  The other underlying question is can we out give God?  The short answer is plainly:  NO!  God gave the breath of life, authored the creation of life, your soul’s existence, etc. there is no possible way that you could out give and be more generous than God.  God sent His only Son to be crucified for you and I just to save us and to turn us around.

Bring all the tithes into the storehouse,
That there may be food in My house,
And try Me now in this,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.

~Malachi 3:10

I always liked how Anthony Robbins described the art of giving, which can be applied to tithing as well.  He always said that when you give, you are telling your subconscious that there is always enough!  I find this to be appropriately  put for such a thing.

Your church deserves your support in this manner.  If you don’t believe it deserves your support you need to discuss it, or you need to find another bible teaching and believing church.

May God Richly Bless You All!
