Giving is such a vital part of our relationship with Christ. It is an opportunity to show God our faith, try Him at His word, and worship Him in love through our tithes and offerings.
What is a tithe? The tithe is 10% of all of your income or increase.
In Malachi 3:10 (NIV), the Bible says "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
What is the Offering? An offering is anything given above and beyond the Tithe.
A good scripture for the offering can be found in 2 Corinthians 9:7 (ESV)..."Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
Be cheerful in your giving!
