Why We Give:
As believers, it is critical that we understand what the Bible says about tithing. The purpose of tithing is to teach us to put God first in our lives. God doesn’t need our money. Instead, He wants what our money represents: our priorities, passions, purposes. Make a commitment to tithe and dedicate yourself to it. And more than anything ... trust God and let Him prove His promises. Giving our tithes and offerings reflects a grateful heart that trusts God and wants to give back to Him a portion of what He has already given us. In reality, everything is already His. Tithing is a reminder that God is the provider of everything we have.
