To Tithe or Not to Tithe?
Definition of Tithe:- to give or pay a tithe or tenth of (produce, money, etc.).
It is generally considered that tithing is only for church members to give so that the church can benefit the community with the monies it receives and that the tithe is simply a measure of obedience to God and a way to release money’s hold over your life. Tithing is in fact the practice of giving away a tenth of your income, for the good of all, usually to a charitable cause.
Many believe that tithing is a very important process in wealth creation. When you give, it should come from an abundance mentality and not a scarcity mentality. If you are giving and feel that you cannot afford it, then it doesn’t help the process. On the other hand, if you can give and do, then it actually helps you build an abundance mentality. This goes to work on your subconcious making it think that you have an abundance which in turn can make you more open to receiving money as well. So then as you earn more, you can tithe more.
Tithing does not have to be about money. There are other ways in which you can give for the good of all. After all, that is what it is about, helping others. Here are some examples:
Give time. Donate your time and be of service to a worthy cause.
Give information. Write articles or a blog in order to share your knowledge freely with others.
Give talents. Use your skills and help someone who maybe cannot afford to pay for it.
Give acknowledgement. Smile at people, give someone a kind word, or acknowledge someone for a job well done!
Give encouragement. Be supportive of those around you and let them know you care.
Give thoughts. Intend the best for people. Pray or meditate for others if those practices have meaning for you.
Give touch. Give someone a pat on the back, a hug or a massage. Give someone a night of wild passion!
It’s all about the intention you put out there when you are giving. If it makes you feel good and not guilty, then that’s the way to be.
Remember too, do not beat yourself up about it if it does not sit right with you. Maybe you can intend an outlet that will make you feel like giving.
Yours is Prosperity!
