Jesus gave us an undeniable commission to go into all the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. To finance this kingdom work he left nothing but the tithes and freewill offerings from ordinary people like you and me. A huge responsibility to say the least but a responsibility empowered by a promise. Jesus said, “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” (Luke 6:38)
These two words are often spoken in the same breath...but what's the difference between them? “Tithe” literally means "tenth" or 10 percent. A tithe is the first 10% of your income. An offering is anything you give in addition to 10%. The Bible says in Deuteronomy 14:23 (TLB): "The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives..."
Tithing is also a reminder that God is the supplier of everything we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to experience an outpouring of his blessing in each of our lives. In Malachi 3:10, God says: "try 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.
In 2 Corinthians 8:7, we're encouraged to EXCEL in the grace of giving because God influences the world through his people. He gives to you so he can give through you. As we faithfully give, the world is changed for the glory of God: the life Jesus offers is preached, people are fed, brokenness is healed, churches are built and each of us, in turn, are blessed by God so that we can give again. By giving, we truly do unlock the ability to be used by God in a miraculous way.
