Someone asked this question the other day:
“If it was 10% by law why would it not be 10% or more under Grace?”
New Testament grace was not intended to bring about a NEW revelation that we should happily give more than 10%. God never changed his principle of stewardship, and never intended for it to have a monetary starting place. Israel was to be stewards of 100% of their possessions just like the NT church is supposed to be. The only difference is, we have the Holy Spirit to tutor us, instead of the law.
So, to answer the question, “would [giving] not be 10% or more under grace?”
-Godly giving was never equal to 10% and never less than 100% stewardship. God never changes.
