Should Christians Tithe?
NCW 11, August 1994
Q. Should Christians Tithe?
Christ taught that "unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matt.5:20; 23:23). They tithed (Lk.18:12).
Zacchaeus gave half (Lk.19:8), the widower gave all she had (Lk.21:4) and the Corinthians were instructed to give proportionately, according to God's blessing (1 Cor.16:2). The first Christians had everything in common (Acts 2:44-45). Jesus taught that we would receive as we gave (Lk.6:38) and that our giving is really laying up treasures for ourselves in heaven (Matt.6:19-20).
Wise Christians tithe and more.
