Tithing & Stewardship
The baseline standard for giving in scripture is “the tithe”, which is derived from the Hebrew word ma’aser and it literally means “a tenth”.
Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithe to a local church is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show Him we trust Him, and fight against greed. Giving regularly allows us to be a part of the most important work in life—spreading the good news of Jesus Christ!
why would i tithe?
For many, the idea of bringing the first 10% of our income to the Church seems overwhelming. The thing is, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make, God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe. Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His Word.
We know generosity is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this...and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
The Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t out give God.
