Why we give...
Our tithes and offering reflects a grateful heart and giving back to God a portion of what He has given us; in reality, what’s already His. It shows God that He is first in our lives by taking the opportunity to give with the expectation that God will faithfully supply all our needs.
The Bible says, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives” (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB).
Giving your tithes is one way to worship God—to honor Him as your provider and remind yourself that all of your resources belong to Him and are provided through His grace. As you give away that first 10% of your income, you set your course to honor God in the way you handle the rest of your finances.
“As he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver” (2 Cor. 9:7).
The tithe is 10% of your gross income. In addition, consider giving God the first-fruits of other resources as well, such as your time. Take time out of the first part of your day in a quiet place and focus on worship and prayer. We encourage you to invest your gifts and abilities in your church and community.
“When you have entered the land the LORD your God is giving you as an inheritance and have taken possession of it and settled in it, take some of the firstfruits of all that you produce from the soil of the land and present them to the LORD your God.” (Deuteronomy 26:1-2)
