Why is tithing important?
Honoring God with the firstfruits of your income
The tithe is 10% of your income, and it should
be given to God faithfully. Tithing honors the Scriptural principles of generously providing for religious leaders, giving
to those in need, and laying up treasures in heaven.
we are encouraged to give the first part of our resources to God as an expression of honor and gratitude. "Honor the
Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy
presses shall burst out with new wine" (Proverbs 3:9-10).
