Thought No. 1: Tithing teaches us to put God first
Deuteronomy 12:6 says, “There you shall take your burnt offerings and your sacrifices, your tithes, the heave offerings of your hand, your vowed offerings, your freewill offerings, and the firstborn of your herds and flocks.”
On the Lies Young Women Believe blog, Erin Davis asks about Deuteronomy 12:6:
“Did you notice which part of the herd and flock the giver is commanded to bring to God? The firstborn. This principle of giving the first fruits—the cream of the crop and the best of the best—to God is seen in several places in Scripture. I know you likely aren’t getting paid in sheep or crops, but starting the practice of giving money to God first teaches you to put His kingdom above your world.”
What do you think? Have you ever thought about that before?
