God is the one who gives every material blessing, we acknowledge His ownership.  For all things come from God, and of His own have we given back to Him (! Chron. 29:14).

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the father-(James 1:17). God teaches us to tithe from what He has given, He teach us to give tithe or (10 percent): And all the tithe of the land, or the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s: it is holy unto the Lord. (Lev. 27:30).

Set aside a tithe – a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.  Then go to the one place where the Lord your God has chosen to be worship; and there in His presence eat the tithes of your grain, wine and olive oil, and the firstborn of your cattle and sheep.  Do this so that you may learn to honor the Lord your God always - (Deut. 14:22-23).

Giving in addition to tithe are the firstborn of man and beast – (Num.18:15-16-17) read for when? And what to do right.  Other one is the firstfruits of all crops (Num. 18:12).

God’s purpose for tithing seen in the old testament is to support the poor and  needy in every locality of God’s owned people on earth – (Deut.15:11,26:13; Acts  4:34-37; Rom. 15;26). To support teachers and preachers.  The leaders and teachers in the church were to be supported from the tithes and offerings given by those to whom they ministered – (Gal. 6:6; I Cor. 9:14; Phil. 4-15-18; Jer. 3:15).

Tithing is a privilege, several centuries before the law was given on Mount Sinai, Abraham gave a tithe to a representative of God. (Gen. 14:18-20; Heb. 7:1-3).   Jacob promised to give a tenth of all God blessed him with. (Gen. 28:22). Hence giving and tithing should not be understood as Old Testament law or a religious obligation, rather it is a privilege of those who choose to exercise their faithfulness to give. Tithing expresses faith, this does not buy God’s Blessing upon our lives-(Mal. 3:10). Those who give their tithe are expressing their faith in God in the most practical way possible. They are saying “I believe the 90 percent that I have left after tithing has God’s blessing on it. With God’s blessing, the 90 percent can purchase more than 100 would without His blessing. “It takes faith upon acting the word of God in us (Lk. 6:38).

Give generously. The Bible teaches us we are to give willingly and cheerfully, from a spirit of generosity. God said to Moises “speak unto the Children of Israel, that they bring me an offering:of every man that giveth it willingly with his heart ye shall take my offering (Exo.25:2).  Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver – (2 Cor. 9:6,7). Generous giving is proof of our love, faith and maturity. (2 Cor. 8:24; 9:6,8,13). A generous believer causes others to give thanks to God. (2 Cor. 9:11,12).

Lastly, to the generous believers like with the Philippine Church during the time of Paul, and he said; “but my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus our Lord”-(Phil. 4:19). GOD BLESS US ALL!!!
