Bible Term: Tithe

A tithe is an Old Testament command where one tenth or ten percent is given to God; this was a matter of law and therefore a requirement.

God, however, doesn’t appreciate tithes given out of obligation. He desires tithes and offerings be given freely, as a result of love and gratitude towards him.

Today, some people maintain the rule of a tithe as presented in the Old Testament, whereas others feel this changed with Jesus, viewing a tithe more as a concept, than a command.

It’s often said a tithe should go to the local church, but a more correct understanding is that a tithe goes to God, be it through a local church or some other means.
