“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” II Corinthians 9: 6-7
Throughout scripture we are reminded of how important it is to give back some of what God has so generously provided for us. Tithing is a way of reminding us that we are only stewards and not owners, that God should always come first in our lives. We give out of our love for the Lord and for our desire to advance his Kingdom.
