What is a Tithe?
Tithing is bringing the first 10 percent of our income back to God. It’s a way to worship God by showing Him that we trust His promises.
It’s also a way to protect our hearts from greed. By bringing back to God what is rightfully His, we remind ourselves that everything we have comes from Him.
What is an Offering?
God makes it clear in His word that He not only loves a cheerful giver (2 Corinthians 9:7), but that He says that we can test Him in this one area to see if He will not bless us! (Malachi 3:10)
Offerings are any gifts we give over and above the tithe. As we understand how generous God is to us, we’ll find ourselves wanting to be more and more generous toward Him.
