Why We Tithe

We tithe to show our trust and faith in all that God has gifted us with. We wish to be faithful and committed stewards of our money and give God the glory of our gifts instead of boasting in our own works. We wish to give out of trust in God, not just from our abundance.

“ Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.  Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything – all she had to live on.” 

—  Mark 12:41-44
