WHY GIVE TO THE CHURCH?
You have probably heard the phrase “tithes and offerings” so let’s start there. The word tithe means a tenth. A tithe is ten percent. As far back as the early Old Testament in the book of Leviticus chapter 27, it talks about the tenth belongs to the Lord. Another Old Testament reference is in the book of Malachi chapter 3. It states that a tenth belongs to the Lord. In fact, both references will say that by not giving a tenth, or tithe, we are robbing God. Anything less than a tithe, or ten percent, is an offering. That’s where tithes and offerings come in. Only the giver knows if his gift is a tithe or and offering.
Giving is between the Lord and the giver. Giving is Biblical though and should be a reflection of our love and devotion to the Lord. Other aspects of our worship to Him are giving of our time, talent, and treasure. While there is still debate today among believers what a tithe is, the Bible is very clear on the subject. Jesus taught about money a lot and knew that it could be a stumbling block for many.
Below are some further scriptures to help you in your spiritual journey concerning tithes and offerings.
