Tithe and Offering

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. II Corinthians 9:7

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house.  Test Me in this, says the LORD Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."  Malachi 3:10

Tithe

“Tithe” means ten percent of your income. Tithe is not a debt we owe; it is a seed we sow! Jesus said, “Behold a sower went out to sow…the seed fell on good ground and brought forth fruit” (Matthew 13:3-8). The Bible says that whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap.

Leviticus 27:30, “All the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s.” If you give to the Lord, you should be expecting a gain! “Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over” (Luke 6:38). Every time God gives you an opportunity to give, He is also giving you an opportunity to increase your income. Malachi 3:10, “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse.” It is important that you give your tithe to the place that feeds you spiritually. When you plant your seed in the Lord’s house, God will multiply it supernaturally beyond your wildest dreams. Our giving should be done cheerfully to glorify and worship God by serving His people – our brothers and sisters. We plant by reaching out to others and then reap as God reaches out to us. God said to Abraham, “I will bless you and you shall be a blessing.” By choosing to tithe to Cornerstone Church, you are blessing and making an eternal difference in the lives of so many!

Offering

What is the difference between tithe and offering? Tithe is giving a tenth of your earnings back to the work of God. An offering, or generous giving, is over and above tithe. Offerings are something that you search your heart and decide to give beyond the tithe, but not in place of the tithe.

Discover the joy and the blessing of generous giving above and beyond what is required. See God as your supplier. Do not give according to what you have, but according to what God can supply. Know that the earth is going to pass away, know the true value of a soul and invest wisely in the Kingdom of God.

Remember it is the Lord who gives you the power to get wealth. It is God’s will for you to be blessed and prosperous. Give and it shall be given unto you. Proverbs 22:9, “He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed, for he giveth of his bread to the poor.”

Romans 8:17 declares, “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ.” When God is your father, all His wealth belongs to you. He has promised to take care of His children. All that He has is yours, and all that you have is His. God has given you His very best, will you give Him yours?
