Sermon Notes

There is an idea that we see throughout scripture that God is to be FIRST.

  1. Firstborn

    Exodus 13:2
    Exodus 13:12-13

    – So, the principle of the firstborn shows an example of the fact that the first, belongs to God. 
  2. Firstfruits

    Exodus 23:19
    Proverbs 3:9-10
  3. Tithe

    Malachi 3:8-11

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%)
