At our recent deanery meeting there was a presentation on tithing given by one of the other priests. It was a topic that I had already been thinking about for quite a while. And, in fact, I recently made the personal decision to start tithing – the first 10 percent goes to God, either via his Church or via other charities.
Rather than share my personal reasons for doing so here, I’d like to hear why you may or may not tithe. It dawned on me recently: I’ve never heard anyone who tried tithing say anything negative about it! Much to the contrary: I’ve only heard positive testimonies.
What do you think about tithing? Do you have personal experience with it?
I hope some of you will share your thoughts!
