As people of faith, we should always seek out opportunities to better understand spiritual principles. This week, I would like to discuss the topic of tithing. The word tithe means a "tenth" of all of your increase (income).Tithing is a biblical principle that was instituted in the Old Testament by God and confirmed by Jesus in the New Testament. It's primary purpose was twofold, to set apart (consecrate) a tenth of your income to be used by God (church, temple), and to assist in providing for the material needs and necessities of ministry (outreach, evangelism). Its benefits are both natural and spiritual, and here are 4 spiritual reasons why everyone should tithe.
