Tithing, The Tithe, Christian Stewardship

Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O LORD, in the light of Your Countenance - Psalm 89:15
Tithing is a basic principle of blessing that brings us into a place where we discover that it is impossible to outgive God. It is the only principle in God's Word where He challenges us to prove Him in this matter. His desire is to open the windows of heaven and pour out blessing upon bessing into our lives.
Malachi 3:8-10

The giving of the tithe is the very foundation on which our stewardship of finances rests. It's when we give the 10th to Him before anything else is bought or paid for that we honor Him as Lord of our finances. By giving God the first fruits of our labor, we are investing in a continuous return for our investment.

Proverbs 3:9-10 Honor the LORD with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.

Romans 11:16 For if the firstfruit is holy, the lump is also holy; and if the root is holy, so are the branches.

 The Journey, Book by Kenneth L. Birks

What does the Bible say concerning how we can practically make God the owner of all that we have?  Is this true in your life? How do we practically walk in the kind of stewardship God desires for our lives in today’s world? How do we practically give up ownership of all that we have and become stewards without being an extremist or getting out of balance?

The giving of the tithe or tithing was a part of the kingdom blessing in every major covenant that God has made with mankind.

  • Abraham - gave a tithe and was extremely blessed in all that he did and was called the Father of our faith.
  • Jacob - made a commitment to give the tithe even when he had nothing. His covenant with God gave birth to the nation of Israel through his twelve sons.
  • Moses - Tithing was instituted as part of the Law of Moses under the covenant that God made with him.
  • Jesus & Paul  -  In the New Testament Jesus and the apostle Paul both spoke of tithing - It is a part of the New covennant
Why is the tithe important?

Malachi 3:8-10 "Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, 'In what way have we robbed You?' In tithes and offerings. You are cursed with a curse, for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now in this," says the LORD of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
  • It's our response to God's Covenant and Divine ownership in our lives.
  • It is a major part in bringing our lives under Christ's Lordship, which is really not an option.
  • If the first fruit is holy, the whole lump will be holy. God will bless the 90%.
  • It blesses the heart by making it receptive to God's will.
  • It brings forth God's blessing in every area of our lives -- He rebukes the devourer.
  • We are stealing from God when we withhold it.
  • It blesses the church by enabling it to carry out a greater ministry.
Exodus 19:5-6 `Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine. `And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel."
