13 Reasons Why You Should Tithe
We’ve given you lots of reasons on this website on why you should not tithe, so here are a bunch of reasons why you should tithe.
- You Want to be Cursed
If you want to be cursed, then a good way to go about it is to keep trying to be justified by the law. (Galatians 3:10)
- You Think Giving Should be Motivated by Obligation
If you are a military officer maybe you think God’s people need enforcement otherwise we won’t give out of love. (2 Corinthians 9:7)
- You Despise Liberty
I can see how a slave can envy the freedom of others, how about You? (Galatians 2:3-5)
- You Abuse Grace Too Easily
If you are worried that you might abuse the grace of God with no laws in place, then keep on tithing (Galatians 2:21)
- You Think You are an Israelite
Israel gave the tithe to the Levites since the Levites had no land inheritance (Numbers 18:20-32)
- You Don’t Believe Christ Fulfilled the Law
Either you were tricked into believing that “Fulfill” really means “Continue”, or you just don’t believe that Christ completed the law (Matthew 5:17)
- You Are Comfortable With Only Offering 10%
Have more to give than 10%? Then this works out for you
- You are Too Scared to Give any Other Way
Maybe you’ve been practicing tithing for so long, that you are scared about the results of what happens when you give any other way
- Ignorance is Bliss!
Studying the Bible for the truth might open a can of worms and you’ll be just as happy not knowing the truth (1 Peter 3:15, Romans 16:18)
- You are Really Dumb?
10% is easy math for you.
- You Believe That Keeping 90% is Not Robbing God
Some of you have poor stewardship with the other 90%, but you think you aren’t robbing God since you gave your 10th to him. (Mark 10:21)
- You Don’t Want God’s Love
God Loves a cheerful giver. It doesn’t say anything about a dedicated one, so maybe this works out for you if you want to lay low on God’s radar (2 Corinthians 9:7)
- You Need a Tax Deduction
Gotta stay under the next tax bracket? Then Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to God what is God’s (Matthew 22:21)
