What is a tithe? Isn't that just the church word for what you give to the church?
The word "tithe" actually means "one tenth." To "tithe" is to give one tenth or 10 percent of your income. The Bible teaches that 100 percent of all that we have comes from God and is completely His. He asks us to bring 10 percent of what He as entrusted to our management to the church, the place we receive our spiritual guidance and covering. In His generosity, He provides for us to keep 90 percent. A tithe is 10 percent. Giving more than the 10 percent standard would be considered an "offering." (Malachi 3:8-10; 1 Chronicles 29:11; Matthew 6:21) To learn more about what the Bible has to say about money, finances and stewardship, register for the next Crown Group Launch.
