January 12, Deuteronomy 14
Here is God's original purpose of the tithe. We know that Abraham gave a tithe to Melchizedek and set an example of piety. But here God specifically explains what to do with th e tithe. It's to be brought at one time to a specific place for a grand festival. A community stockpile for everyone to come and partake. In the original design what was brought to the temple or synagogue were offerings for sins, of which a portion was set aside for the priests. This was how the “church” of the time operated, the tithe was a separate issue. The concept has changed over time. Are we compelled to tithe today? No, there is no specific amount that a Christian is scripturally required to bring to God. Another facet that should set apart Christians from religions is not giving from a compulsory requirement but giving from love.
