“Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me.
“But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’
“In tithes and offerings.Malachi 3:8

What is a tithe? The dictionary defines tithe as, “the tenth part of agricultural produce or personal income set apart as an offering to God or for works of mercy, or the same amount regarded as an obligation or tax for the support of the church, priesthood, or the like”. The Old Testament talks about a tithe of 10%, and everyone was to be generous to those in need. In the New Testament, Jesus makes it clear that we are to help those who are in need:

34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Are you robbing God, or are you a generous giver who gives from your heart? We are designating May as “Try-A-Tithe” month. If you are not already tithing, would you consider giving a tithe one Sunday in May? Please prayerfully consider how you can give generously of your time, talents, or treasures. If you choose not to tithe with money, would you be willing to share your talents by singing with the choir one Sunday a month? How about committing to pray for the church with the prayer group on a Wednesday morning or evening? Do you have the ability to coordinate the acolyte schedule or the lay assistant schedule? Will you help the property committee with the spring cleanup day? Will you give some of your time to study the Bible with one of our Bible study groups?  Together, we can make a difference!
