There is an idea that we see throughout scripture that God is to be FIRST.
– So, the principle of the firstborn shows an example of the fact that the first, belongs to God.
A couple of other reasons we tithe beyond it’s a matter of obedience:
- Reminds us of His provision (He is God)
- Reminds us that we are stewards, not owners
- Allows us to invest His resources into his work through the Church
- It puts everyone on the same level (10%)
