The topic of paying tithes have always an issue for discussion and so many pastors would say it should be paid per Sunday. Well, I don’t think so based on some facts backed up by the holy scriptures.
We will start by knowing key definition.
What is tithe?
Tithe can be said to be the one-tenth of the money or monetary value you get(income)and is paid as a contribution to a religious body.
The reason why tithing is very important for Christians is due to the fact it’s an order given to us by God to pay one-tenth back to him.
What does the Bible says about tithe?
In Leviticus 27:30-34 it read thus: And a tenth part of the herd and of the flock, whatever goes under the rod of the valuer, will be holy to the Lord. He may not make search to see if it is good or bad, or make any changes in it; and if he makes exchange of it for another, the two will be holy; he will not get them back again.
Who are tithe meant for and when to pay tithe?
Deuteronomy 26:12 gives a clear meaning of what it’s meant for and it read thus: When you have finished setting aside a tenth of all your produce in the third year, the year of the tithe, you shall give it to the Levite, the foreigner, the fatherless and the widow, so that they may eat in your towns and be satisfied.
When to pay tithe?
Every 3 month not weekly as you do
Who Should Recieve the Tithes?
This is an important question because most pastors now see it as salary from God.
. The FOREIGNERS
3. THE WIDOW AND PEOPLE WITHOUT PARENTS (ie The poor)
No church or pastor was mentioned in those verses, I personally use my tithe to feed the poor and motherless around me but if you think paying your tithe to your pastor brings blessing to you, please continue doing so and don’t let this article stop you, it’s just an eye opener.
