The Bible is clear that God expects people to honor him by giving at least 10% of their annual income in supporting his work in the world through churches and Christian ministries. The goal is to get out the “good news” of God's love and grace and mercy found only in Jesus Christ. In fact the Bible says if a person does not ‘Tithe’ he or she is a thief and is actually robbing God. (see Malachi 3:9). After all, it all belongs to him. We brought nothing into this world and we take nothing out. The pharaohs tried and they were unsuccessful in spite of their great Pyramids. There are no U-hauls in funeral processions. Each person is expected to be a good steward of God's resources which he generously has provided in abundance for our needs. Tithing shows one's gratitude for all God's blessings. Experience shows that God promises blessings till they overflow to those who Tithe. (see Malachi 3:10). So if you are not drowning in God's blessings, it's not his fault. The choice is yours. Be sure to choose wisely.
