At Woodland Hills, we believe that tithing and giving offerings is scriptural.
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, ” If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.” And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes…KJV
What exactly is tithing?
Tithing is a principle, which comes from a covenant agreement. The tithe is the first 10% returned to your place of worship as an act of obedience to scripture. For example, if you earned $100, the tithe would be 10% of 100, which is $10. The other thing about tithing is that everyone gives the same amount. So whether you earn a little or a lot, 10% is still 10%.
I’ve never heard of tithing before.
In the book of Malachi, God asks us to “prove” Him with the tithe. This actually means to take Him at his word and test His promise. (Malachi 3:10)
What kind of promise does God make?
What is the promise you ask? God promises that if we will bring the tithes and offerings to the place of worship, that He would grant us a blessing that we would not have enough room to receive. That’s a pretty powerful promise! Blessings can take a number of different forms. Certainly financial is one of them, but it is not the only one; healing is a blessing, peace is a blessing, your family in tact is a blessing, safety is a blessing and so many more!
