Let us delve into the importance of tithing and explore a pertinent Bible verses that underscores this practice.

Tithing: A Biblical Mandate

The foundation of tithing in faith is rooted in the Bible. In the book of Malachi (3:10, NIV), the Lord says, "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." This scripture emphasizes God's promise to abundantly bless those who faithfully tithe, highlighting the reciprocal nature of the act. Tithing is not an obligation but an invitation to experience God's overflowing blessings.


Tithing as a Source of Community Support

Tithing is the lifeblood of the church, enabling it to carry out its various ministries and outreach programs. In Rolleston and around New Zealand and in similar communities, these ministries are often the heart and hands of Christ to those in need, offering counselling and support, and spreading the Gospel. Acts 20:35 (NIV) reminds us of Jesus' words, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." Tithing fosters a culture of selflessness and generosity, enabling us to be a blessing to those around us.


Impact on People's Lives

Through tithing, communities like the one in Rolleston are able to bring hope and transformation to individuals and families. Whether it's funding educational programs, assisting those in financial distress, or simply being a pillar of support, tithing plays a pivotal role in touching and transforming lives. Galatians 6:10 (NIV) encourages believers, saying, "Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers." Tithing allows us to fulfill this calling by extending a helping hand to our community members.


A Catalyst for Spiritual Growth

Tithing is not just about giving money; it's about giving our hearts and trust to God. It is a tangible expression of our faith, reflecting our belief that God is the ultimate provider. As we faithfully give, we cultivate a deeper relationship with God, developing a sense of stewardship over His resources. This spiritual growth is vital for our personal walk with God and strengthens our capacity to impact the lives of others.


A Blessing Beyond Measure

Tithing is not a legalistic requirement but a joyful act of worship and obedience. It empowers the church to serve the community, make a positive impact on people's lives, and fulfill the Great Commission. As we embrace the grace of giving, we experience God's faithfulness and His promise to bless us beyond measure. In a world that often prioritizes self-interest, tithing stands as a counter-cultural testament to the love and generosity of Christ, both within our faith community and throughout the wider community of Rolleston.
