Why We Give
When you tithe, you are aligning your attitude and actions with universal principles originating with God, the great Giver (Matthew 10:8; 19:21; 20:28; Luke 6:38; 12:32; Acts 20:35). Tithing reflects the unselfish, giving nature of our Creator and Provider.
Giving Shows Support
Through willing and cheerful giving (2 Corinthians 9:6-8), we honor God while supporting the physical means of preaching the gospel. Jesus Christ said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35).
When You Give, You Should Give Willingly
So it should be noted that anyone who gives a tithe should do so willingly. Although God equates withholding tithes with robbing Him (Malachi 3:8-10), He does not force anyone to tithe. Tithing is giving.
Tithing is a Decision
Making a decision to tithe is a matter of faith. Stepping out in faith to tithe and in this way supporting the work of God of preaching the gospel and nourishing the Church is a scriptural obligation none of those called by God can afford to neglect.
