Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
- 2 Corinthians 9:7
Tithing is the Biblical teaching of giving the Lord ten percent of your earnings. Tithing isn’t taught because God needs your money. Instead, tithing teaches us how to keep God first in all aspects of our lives.
Giving to God is a blessing to the church body and to the giver. Offerings are an extra way to bless the church and Kingdom of God.
