What is a tithe?
A tithe simply means a “tenth”. Tithing is our tangible way of bringing to God that which belongs to Him anyway. It’s our obedient response to His clear command to “bring” the first tenth of our income into the ‘storehouse’. God’s promise is that our obedience brings us divine protection. We don’t tithe to “get” – we tithe to “obey”.
What about offerings?
Offerings are our free will giving over and above the tithe. God speaks about the principles of sowing and reaping and freewill offerings in every area of our lives and this includes our finances. Please prayerfully, intentionally and responsibly consider the offerings you give and do it according to your personal conviction and to the measure of your relationship with God.
