Financial Update

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

- Matthew 6:21

What is the difference between a tithe and an offering?

Tithe: The Biblical principle of tithe comes from the Old Testament, where Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek (Genesis 14:20; Hebrews 7:6); and Jacob vowed unto the Lord and said, "Of all that you give me I will give you a tenth" (Genesis 28:22). The word “tithe” means “tenth.” The tithe has a reference to ownership, that we return to the one who owns everything a portion of what he has given to us. The Bible talks about the neglect of this duty, where it was sternly rebuked by the prophets (Amos 4:4; Malachi 3:8-10). It cannot be affirmed that the Old Testament law of tithes is binding on the Christian Church, however, the principle of this law remains, and is incorporated in the gospel (1 Corinthians 9:13-14); and so our motivation that compels us to be generous givers, as followers of Christ, is greater now than in Old Testament times; as Christians, we should go beyond the ancient Hebrew obligation in consecrating both ourselves and our possessions to God. Tithing becomes part of our worship to the Lord.
Offering: Giving above and beyond the tithe is considered an offering. The Bible doesn’t command us to give offerings, but it does encourage us to give generously, and offerings—since they aren’t required—reflect the generosity in our hearts. Until the tithe is met, an offering cannot be given.
