A tithe of all you produce is the Lord’s and it is holy.”  Lev 27:30


What is tithing? The word “tithe” means “a tenth part” or “10%”.  In the Bible God tells us that we are to give the first 10% of all we earn back to Him. Giving less than 10% is not tithing. An offering is any amount you give over and above your tithe, such as gifts for special projects.  Tithing is God’s minimum standard, the starting point.  As God prospers you, you’ll want to give more.
