Here are the real question,if God doesn't need our money,then why does He ask that we tithe? The only logical answer is because tithing isn't for God.. Meaning, the tithe doesn't benefit God,it benefits you.
Here are reasons to why you shouldn't tithe;
1•Tithing helps you to trust God_Putting our trust in God is hard. God is not a dummy.He knows it is hard for us.And yet,He continually asks us to trust Him.When it doesn't make sense,God asks us to trust Him.Ehen the odds aren't in our favor,God asks us to trust Him.Whrn there doesn't seem to be any hope,God asks as to trust Him.
Trusting in God is extremely important for our track with God.Maachi 3:10,God asks us to bring the tithe to the storehouse.God actually says, test me in this.l think that alone is a reason enough for us to pay attention to the tithe.lt I'd clearly important to God, and important for us.
God basically saying, trust me on this one.Test me even just see if l won't bless you.
2• Tithing helps you to have faith in God's provision_ Honor the Lord with your wealth, and with the best part of everything you produce .Then He will fill your barnd with grains, and your basket will overflow with good wine, proverbs 3:9_10.
Sometimes God wants to see that we are willing to see out in faith and believe that He will take care of us . We need to have faith that He is a good father, who provides for His children.
3• Tithing helps you to obey God with what is precious to you.May the Lord cause you to flourish, both you and your children, Psalms 115:15. When we put our faith and trust in God, it opens the door for God to move in our lives.
4• Tithing helps you to achieve more generous
Give and it will be given to: good measure, pressed down,shaken together, and running over,Luke 6:38.
Like a good father loves giving gifts to his children, God loves giving good gifts to us (Matthew 7:22). You may wonder ,why is it so important for me to be generous? Why must l always be giving?
God wants our hearts to mirror His heart.God loves to give and to help others.Thid means that God wants to shift our hearts so that we will want to give and help others as well.lf you give generously, generosity will give given back to you.
5• Tithing helps you understand your real source of providing.But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth.Deuteronomyv8:28.
God was teaching us to let go of the reigns a bit, and let Him take over.God was teaching us to have a more generous heart.God was teaching us that by putting our faith in Him, instead of ourselves,He could bless us more than we could provide for ourselves.Because God is our real source of blessing.Thats lead me to my final point, thanks and please share this article to your friends and family.
