Did You Know?
The word “tithe” literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing, or giving ten percent of your income, isn’t merely giving something to God. It’s a version of us giving back what was the Lord’s to begin with. We show God our trust. When we realize all that we have, or hope to have, comes from him. The Bible says that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we are blessed with in our lives.
Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “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.”
