“Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth. And praise be to God Most High, who delivered your enemies into your hand.” Then Abram gave him a tenth of everything.” GENESIS 14:18-20 NIV
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.” MALACHI 3:10 NASB
It is pretty clear from all the Bible verses on money and tithing that tithing is a Biblical idea. Tithing is just as relevant to New Testament Christians as it was in the Old Covenant.
Tithing is NOT a requirement for salvation, God’s love for you, or even God being pleased with you, but it is a means of HONORING God with one’s substance.
Tithing is not only a means, it is a command!
