Church is a family, where we love each other and care for one another. As soon as a church starts speaking about finances people might get a bit uncomfortable and the usual suspects come out to play. This causes people to draw back and not express their faith through tithing and the giving of offerings.
Consider for a moment Deutoronomy 8 from verse 18, up to this verse Moses is telling the people to remember that it is God Who had brought them to the place they found themselves. Now Moses encourages the people with the following
18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today. (NIV)
It is God who gives us the ability to work and produce for ourselves and our families. It is God who makes us successful. So if everything we have and can produce comes from Him, then asking 10% back is not a tall order to ask, is it? Watch this Video for a helpful perspective on Tithing
Malachi 3:10 says:
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LordAlmighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.
This is the only place in the Bible where God says we can test Him. So we come to God with an understanding of why we give our 10% to him and we give to His church because in today’s living it is the storehouse from where you get fed spiritually.
