God is generous and so he calls us to be as well. What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.
First Things First- The first belongs to God. We find this principle all through God's Word. Tithing, giving God the first 10 percent of our income to the local church, is one of the primary ways we acknowledge that God is first. (Proverbs 3:9-10)
Giving is the only subject in the Bible where God invites us to test Him. Give your tithe to God and see if He does not open the floodgates of Heaven to bless you in ways you never dreamed possible. (Malachi 3:10)
