What Is A Tithe?
A tithe is a “tenth part.” The Bible tells us that everything belongs to God (Psalm 24:1, 1 Corinthians 10:26.) In His grace, God allows us to keep, manage, and call our own ninety per cent of our increase, which in modern day terms is our gross income acquired through our physical, intellectual, and economic pursuits. Tithing is returning to God the ten per cent He claims as His own (Lev. 27:30,32.) When we tithe, we give God nothing of our own. It is simply returning to Him that which belongs to Him according to the Scriptures. When we faithfully return God’s tithe to Him, He promises to reward our obedience by opening up the windows of heaven and pouring out bountiful blessings (Malachi 3:8-10.)
