In the Bible, God’s plan for financing His work is the tithes and offerings of His people. A tithe is one-tenth of our income given to the Lord through His church. In the first book of the Bible, Abraham tithed (Gen. 14: 20), and so did Jacob (Gen. 28: 22). Later, tithing became part of the Law of Moses (Lev. 27: 30). Honoring God financially brings spiritual and material blessing (Prov. 3: 9-10 and Mal. 3: 10).
The New Testament affirms that giving is to be proportional to income (1 Cor. 16: 2) and that God loves a cheerful giver (2 Cor. 9: 7). Jesus our Savior said, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6: 38, NIV).
Tithing glorifies Christ, blesses the giver, and helps build the church. First Baptist Church of Ft.
