In the New Testament we learn
everyone is the temple of God, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 6:19
everyone is a priest, 1 Peter 2:9
everyone is gifted, 1 Corinthians 12:7, Ephesians 4:16

No one is tasked with doing it all, or even too much. God made it simple, low enough that it isn’t a burden, high enough that it requires commitment. And God makes it work!

Tithing is a baseline, and means a tenth

Genesis 14:20, Leviticus 27:30-32, Deuteronomy 14:22, 2 Chronicles 31:5-6, Nehemiah 13:11-12, Matthew 23:23, 1 Corinthians 16:2

Psalm 24:1

Malachi 3:8

Tithing is about giving your first

Firstfruits in OT
Genesis 4:3-4, Proverbs 3:9-10, Deuteronomy 26:2, Exodus 34:26

First day of the week in NT
1 Corinthians 16:2

It’s an attitude that says “God is first!”
The first day, first hours of the week.
Not myself, my family, my friends, my hobbies, etc.
The first of my increase, not the last or the leftovers.
You want to be more blessed in your life? Make God first, not just figuratively or verbally but in reality!

Consistency is key in any success!

Any investment will bring blessings and miracles into THE HOUSE

Heaven is being populated and hell is being plundered by your offerings. That’s why giving is a spiritual act—because when you give, people get saved.
Robert Morris

But a consistent tithe investment brings blessings and miracles to your house.

The Whole Tithe

Malachi 3:10

I don’t know how much blessing you can count on at 5% but I do know this:  When you give 10% you can count on God 100%!
