A Proper Perspective
A tithe is a tenth (10%) of your income which is to be given for the support of the Lord’s work. In the Old Testament, the tithes were given to the temple. In the New Testament, the tithes are given to the church.
Tithing is an act of obedience which reveals the true value system of our heart and reflects our love for God and our commitment to invest in His eternal work. Tithing enables us to support God’s work while moving God to open up heaven’s windows to bless us beyond our wildest dreams.
Offerings are gifts which we bring, representing more than 10% of our income. The amount will be influenced by our income, our love, our faith, and the leading of the Holy Spirit.
