What is Tithing?
The tithe is an act of worship. It is in the form of a tenth of our income that we give to house of the Lord for the support of His kingdom ministry (Mal 3:8-9). The first mention of tithing as an act of worship is in Gen 14:18 – 20 where Abraham gave a tithe to Melchizedek the priest of the Most High. The Law of Moses establishes the giving of the tithe in Lev 27:30-32 for the supporting of the system of worship.
In the New Testament, the Lord Jesus mentions the tithe as something that we should continue along with the other important duties of the law such as justice, mercy and faithfulness, love and charity to the needy brothers and sisters (Matt 23:23; 25:34-36). The Apostle Paul further mentions that our attitude towards giving should be cheerful and generous (2 Cor 9:6-13).
With the tithes and offerings, the church is able to be God’s hands extended to our community.
