Giving to God

"You shall certainly tithe all the produce from what you sow … the tithe of your grain, your new wine, your oil, and the firstborn of your herd and your flock, so that you may learn to fear the LORD your God always."

Deuteronomy 14:22-23


For God’s people, tithing was not an option. It was a command and central to their relationship with Him. The word tithe comes from a Hebrew word meaning a tenth. This tenth represented the portion of their possessions that belonged to God. It applied to their herds and flocks, their grain, resources, and everything else.

As Moses taught, the tithe was the Lord’s. It was a constant reminder that they owed everything to Him. All He required from them was a portion to be given back in recognition of His blessings.
