Paying Tithes and Offering
Tithing? is an ancient, divine law wherein the Lord has commanded us to give a tenth of our increase—which is understood to mean income—so we may build up His kingdom on the earth and be blessed. When you pay an honest tithe, the Lord promises that He will “open . . . the windows of heaven, and pour . . . out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10). These blessings may be temporal or spiritual, and they will come to you as you obey this divine law.
Paying tithing is an expression of your faith and an outward sign of your belief in God and His work. Those who do not pay tithing, those who keep for themselves something that rightfully belongs to Him, rob God ( Malachi 3:8).
