Let’s Chat: Your ten percent.

I have heard a lot of opinions and different perspectives about tithing.

Those that don’t tithe condem those that do. Those that do tithe condem those that don’t.

Why do Believers tithe? Should we always tithe? Does it matter?

I seek your opinion. What do you think?

Do you tithe? If so why or why not ?

  1. It is important to pay Tithe, not because others are doing it but because of the word of God. According to the book of Malachi 3:8-10, it is a must that we must give at least one-tenth of our income to God. If we don’t do that we rob God.
    One of the consequences of not paying tithe is;
    It opens doors for the enemies to attack .We become less blessed and favoured by both people and God. So, it is advisable to yield to God’s word so that we can encounter God’s blessings and protection. Because, He alone is Jehovah Nissi and Jehovah Jireh.

  2. In tithing, we can give something valuable to God, that comes from our heart.. It doesn’t have to be only money.

    1. Absolutely! The important phrase there is “comes from our heart”
      It’s important that we do so not because we are forced to, but because we are willing to.
      Thank you for your input!

    Consider the widow’s mite – she gave everything she had. To me everything I am and have belongs to God – not just $ resources but time, talent, spiritual gifts, experience, all the tools in my spiritual & professional tool kits – plus culinary offerings as well. Footing big food bills for fellowship gatherings bringing different folks together can be part of tithing – plus all the time spent making the food! (Just hosted prayer brunch here yesterday for Uganda that reminded me of many meals/parties hosted overseas that took a big chunk of my paltry relief&development salary.) 10% may be a good place to start, but to me it’s 100% of us God wants – wether we’re working in ministry or for secular entities or as moms or caregivers or what what – it’s all for God. As to how we support our churches? Even when I’ve had no income I’ve tried to give what I could each week from savings because our churches need us (as we need them) to do out bit. Blessings! πŸ™βœ¨πŸŽ‚βœ¨πŸ™πŸΏ

    1. All that I am belongs to God! It’s very true that God wants us 100%…fully committed.
      It couldn’t have been said any better.
      Thank you for sharing! Hope your prayer brunch went well. God bless you for all that you do!

  4. This goes hand-in-hand with what my pastor said saying that Tithing isn’t so much about money, but about putting God first.

    1. Absolutely!
      This reminds me of Matthew 6:33 that says we should seek & put God first above all things and everything else will be added!

  5. The blessings from paying a full tithe got me through nursing school. No doubt about it. I have heard “I can’t afford to pay tithing”. Well, I can’t afford to not pay.
