Take ye from among you an offering unto the Lord : whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord ; gold, and silver, and brass, Exodus 35:5 KJV
The Tithe is the Lord’s. It is holy and it does not belong to you. It is God’s.
Offerings are what you give out of the 90% that God has given you stewardship of. You show honor, thankfulness, and love when you give with a willing heart.
God’s kingdom, Jesus’ Church, flourishes and advances as His people give willingly from their hearts out of love for Him.
Willing, cheerful giving blesses the Lord and opens the windows of heaven.
