TITHING:

Step by Step



  1. Set your intention to tithe with God as your partner.

  2. Decide to what organization or to whom you will be tithing- this will be the source of your spiritual teachings, meaning your church.

  3. Calculate your tithe – this will be 10% of your increase. For example, 10% of your gross income. In some cases this can also be 10% of your gross. Some people even like to start off with a smaller percentage and then gradually build up to the 10 per cent as they gain inner strength with this process.

  4. Send your tithe to the source of your spiritual teachings. Bless it and let it go with joy gratitude knowing that God is your partner.

  5. Tithe consistently and enjoy the blessings of being a joyful giver.

  6. Sign a Tithing Covenant between you and God.  Many tithers have found that it is helpful to make a long-term tithing agreement.

Tithing is a spiritual law of giving, where a person gives 10% of their increase back to the source of their spiritual teachings. Those who have practiced tithing have reported tremendous positive results in their finances, relationships, health and careers. If you want to know more about tithing and how God can be your partner in your life, explore the Bible.

Malachi 3:10 (KJV)

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

“Tithing is about putting God first in your life.
Put God first in your life, and you can count on God doing His part.”

Tithes and Offerings

Malachi 3:10 (KJV)

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Definition of tithes and offerings. The Hebrew word for “tithe” literally means “a tenth part.” (1) In the Law of God, the Israelites were required to give one-tenth of the production of the land, the livestock, and their income as a recognition that God had blessed them (see Lev. 27:30-32; Num. 18:21, 26; Deut. 14:22-29; see Lev. 27:30); the tithe was primarily for the expenses of the worship of the Lord and for the support of the priests. God help His people responsible to manage the resources He had given them in the promised land (Mat. 25:15, Luke 19:13). At the heart of tithing was the notion that God owns everything (Ex. 19:5; Ps. 24:1; 50:10-12; Hag. 2:8). Humans are created by Him, and they owe to Him every breath they take (Gen. 1:26-27; Acts 17:28). Thus, no one has anything that he or she has not first of all received from the Lord (Job 1:21; John 3:27; I Cor. 4:7). In the laws about tithing, God was simply commanding them to return to Him what He had first given to them.
