When we bring the tithe to the Lord’s storehouse, we are showing that we put Him first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith and love. Tithers can expect the windows of heaven to open and blessings to be poured out (Malachi 3:10).
An offering, any giving over and above the tithe, helps to further the kingdom and support what the Lord is doing in the local church through the teaching of the Word, ministry outreaches and missions. Givers can expect that gifts will be given to them “good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over” (Luke 6:38).
