No, the concept of tithing has never been popular and it is a hard discipline for most to learn. From the days of the law until now, greed is a sin that the human heart has to struggle to overcome. My son warned about how greed for this world and the things of it can keep a man from finding spiritual truth and knowing true wealth in my grace. He was so right when he said you cannot love both me and the riches of this world.
So why tithe? If you learn to trust me with the first ten percent, you will learn to trust me with anything. If you give me the first ten percent, I will teach you how to have contentment and live within your means. If you give me the first ten percent I will make the ninety percent adequate for your needs and bless you with abundance, because in giving to me the first ten percent it will show that I own one hundred percent of your heart.
Desiring one hundred percent of your heart, I AM
