WATCH AS YOUR SEED GROWS
"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!" Malachi 3:10 (NIV)

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is the difference between Tithes and Offerings?
It’s important to note that tithing and offering is often used in conjunction with each other, but they are actually two different things. According to the Bible, a tithe is a percentage off of everything we earn and ultimately belongs to the Lord. While in the most basic sense, “offering” simply means a gift or contribution. When it comes to offerings in the church, people usually consider any amount that exceeds their tithe to be an offering.
2 Corinthians 9:6
2. How much should I tithed?
If we're getting technical, the dictionary defines Tithe as “a tenth part of something paid as a voluntary contribution or as a tax especially for the support of a religious establishment”. He has given us all that we have, so tithing is a way for us to give a little back. Tithing and donations aren’t forced by God. He has given us free will to give what we have decided in our hearts to give. The gifts we give back should be done so willingly and with a cheerful heart.
2 Corinthians 9:7
