Tithes & Offerings

What can we learn about tithing in the Bible? Stewardship is one of Scripture’s key principles. It challenges us to recognize that everything was created by God and is ultimately owned by God. Humans exist as the managers of these resources.

Our finances are one of the key areas where Christians practice stewardship. Our ability to acquire wealth is a gift given to us by God, and we need to be mindful of how we use these resources to fulfill God’s work to further His kingdom and take care of others.

Tithes and offerings have been the chief way financial stewardship has been practiced by God’s people throughout Scripture.

What is Tithing

Despite the fact that many people use the word “tithe” synonymously with any church-related giving, the word tithe literally means “tenth.”

The tithe was an obligatory offering from the law of Moses requiring 10 percent of an Israelite’s first-fruits. Because God provided the harvest, this first part was returned to Him. It was a reminder to Israel that all things we have are His. It was a show of thankfulness for His provision. It also provided for the Levitical priesthood, festivals, and the needy.

Offerings

WHAT ARE OFFERINGS
Offerings, on the other hand, are considered gifts given outside of (or in addition to) a tithe. While tithes and offerings are technically two different practices in generosity, they’re often spoken about hand-in-hand.

TITHING IN THE BIBLE
One major value of having giving-related Scripture in one place is to see just how much God focuses on the fact that our resources are an extension of our faith. When we see this information pulled together, it’s hard to downplay the significance of how we use our resources.

This information can be used to put together sermons, Bible studies, or stewardship classes.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
