Tithing is an Old Testament principle of giving, where God’s people would give their firstfruits (first 10% of their crops, cattle, etc. back to Him in worship. In this way they recognized that He was their provider.
In the New Testament, the focus is less on the 10%, but sowing generously into the Kingdom of Heaven through our giving (2 Cor. 9:6-8 below). Ten percent is a good starting place, and giving from there as the Lord leads you.
We’ve seen God provide abundantly in our church, and we know He will provide abundantly for you and your family when you put Him first in your finances. In fact, it’s the one area in the Bible where God tells you to test Him.
“The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 (ESV)
