Your Giving Makes A Difference
Generosity is a natural side effect of following Jesus.
What does tithe mean?
Tithe simply meant "tenth". When we talk about giving a tithe we mean giving a tenth of what you earn. In scripture, we see God's people giving a tithe or a "tenth" of their harvest or livestock. Now, followers of Jesus practice the same principle, by giving 10% of each paycheck they earn to their local church.
Well money has a tight grip on our hearts. Mathew 6:21 says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also". Meaning, whatever has your money, has your heart. So, when we receive a paycheck we practice surrendering our finances to God by 10% of that paycheck to Him. Weekly, biweekly or whenever we receive money, we can practice giving Him our heart by giving a tithe.
