Tithing is the practice of giving to God 10% of what we earn. Before Moses ever received the Law, we see Abraham & Jacob tithing (Genesis 14 & 28). In the Law we read multiple affirmations of the command to tithe (Leviticus 27, Numbers 12, Deuteronomy 18). In Matthew 23.23, we see Jesus affirming the practice of tithing while teaching on mercy and compassion. This makes it clear to us that tithing is a biblical principle, not just an Old Testament that Jesus nullified. After all, Jesus said he didn't come to cancel the Law but fulfill the Law (Matthew 5). We see tithing as obedience. Generosity is giving above and beyond our tithe. Last, in Paul's letters to the Corinthians, he urges the churches to pay their pastors and to store up giving so they can disperse it for needs when Paul comes to collect for the need. We affirm supporting our pastors and our practice of regularly dispersing funds to local and international needs.
