Principles For Tithes and Offerings's 1 John Chapter 3 comment on 7/06/2022, 3:12am...

I just want to add one thought about tithing and offerings.

Your giving is AS UNTO THE LORD JESUS.

Tithes are 10% of your net income. This is for the needs of the local church.

If you are faithful to give this, without complaint; God will help you out some way when you have more month than money:

He may help you get a promotion or a better job. He may give you wisdom how to save money for "long months"; curb impulse spending, or money for entertainments etc.

Offerings are exactly what it means. You give OVER the tithe, out of your need. It is given to your church for repairs or needs. It is given to the church missionaries (those sent to other nations). You can bless a church member who has just lost their job; you can believe God for money for new tires or repairs on your car, etc.

Mark the envelope that this is an offering.

This is money given between you and God. He knows exactly how best to repay you. Some people are healed of diseases. I am not saying that offerings can buy healing. The offering is holy unto God. It's about obedience and faith.

The Principle

Ecclesiastes 11:1 - Cast thy bread upon the waters: [faith in action] for thou shalt find it after many days.

Believers are the Body of Christ, the Church. Matthew 7:13-29, Luke 19, Matthew 10:16-42, Acts 20:28-30, Jude 1, whole chapter.

Hopefully this is helpful
