Tithing, the act of giving a portion of your income to God or a religious organization, is a practice that has been followed for centuries.
It's not just a religious duty, but also a way to cultivate a spirit of generosity and contribute to the well-being of others.
Our reading is found in two portions of scripture, which are as follows:
Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. And test Me now with this, says Jehovah of Hosts, to see if I will not open the windows of Heaven for you, and pour out a blessing for you, until there is not enough room. (Malachi 3:10).
Give, and it shall be given to you, good measure pressed down and shaken together and running over, they shall give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you measure, it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:38).
Here are some tips and benefits of tithing and giving:
1️⃣ Understand the Principle: Tithing is based on the principle of giving back a portion of what you have been blessed with. It's a way to acknowledge that everything we have comes from someone bigger than us, that is God.
2️⃣ Others determine the percentage they give: They decide on the percentage of their income that they want to allocate for tithing. Traditionally, it's 10%, but this can vary based on personal circumstances and beliefs.
3️⃣ Consistency is Key: Make tithing a regular practice by setting aside the designated portion of your income consistently. This helps to cultivate a habit of giving and ensures a steady contribution.
4️⃣ Purposeful Giving: Giving is not just about giving to your religious institution; it's also about supporting causes and helping those in need.
Consider donating to charities or organizations that align with your values and have a positive impact.
5️⃣ Financial Discipline: Tithing encourages financial discipline as it prioritizes giving over personal desires. It teaches us to manage our finances responsibly and fosters a mindset of abundance.
The Benefits of tithing and giving are as follows:
✨ Spiritual Enrichment: Tithing fosters a deeper connection with your faith and strengthens your spiritual journey. It promotes gratitude and a sense of purpose.
✨ Blessings and Abundance: According to the Bible, tithing brings blessings and abundance into our lives. It's seen as a way to open doors for opportunities and receive divine favor. God also rebukes the devourer.
