Pay Your Tithe

Key Verse

“And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham” (Hebrews 7:5).

Text — Hebrews 7:5-9


According to David Yonggi Cho, “We must give the precise amount. One-tenth of all our income. If we interpret the regulation of the tithe freely, as we like, and give thank offerings, Sunday offerings and alms out of the tithe, that is not paying all the tithe.” As tithing was relevant in the Old Testament Covenant, so it is today in the New Testament Church. Tithes are important because they are used to pay Church workers, grow the Church and promote the gospel worldwide.

God’s saints are not only required to give tithes and offerings generously and sacrificially but also encouraged to do so from a pure heart. Tithing applies to all Christians today as a symbol of how God calls us to live our lives as stewards rather than owners. Do not give because you fear to be punished or because you expect God to bless you for the act. Rather, give because God expects you to be a lot more generous due to the fullness of Christ’s work that we celebrate. Whether little or much, pay the tithe.


To live our lives as stewards


Tithing is a test of your obedience as a steward.

Prayer for today

Make me a cheerful giver and tither, O God!
