Matthew 6 verse 33

An explanation of tithing

sorry I'm setting up the layout of the site tonight ready for content


tithing is giving a tenth of our income to God

to our church to fund ministry we receive

to fund the church's care for the poor

to fund the church helping those outside the church


personally, my contextualisation suggests that as in the OT   God gave His people land,
and the Priests were responsable for health, education and welfare of the people of God

whereas today

  • we buy our land
  • the government provides health, education and in Australia welfare payments
a tithe could be after tax and after land repayments.

more later

on living a life of faith based on giving rather than getting

faith that God provides for our needs

our tithing is an act of obedience  in faith
