CONCLUSION:  Based on scripture, THE TITHE REFERS TO TEN PERCENT OF THE PRODUCE FROM THE LAND
OF THE ELEVEN ISRAELITE TRIBES.  Annually, the produce was taken to the city where the central sanctuary
was located.  At that time, at an initial festival, all Israelites ate part of the tithe.  The rest, majority of it, was
distributed to the priests and Levites (twelfth tribe), for they had no land inheritance of their own.

At the end of every three years, a portion of the tithe was meant for the aliens, the fatherless and the widows.
The less fortunate.

THERE ARE NO SCRIPTURES THAT CONNECT THE TITHE TO MONEY.  In fact, the scriptures say that a
Christian can give what they have decided in their heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God
loves a cheerful giver.

I believe a Christian can give one percent or five percent or ten percent or fifteen percent or thirty percent,
etc. of their income to the church.  Just be a cheerful giver (whether in money, material things or your time)
and give what you are compelled to give from your heart.  Also, as a generous and cheerful giver, God will
return many blessings to you.

As we have read in the category of “specific mate” for a person, or “specific plan” for a persons life, the sub-
ject of “how much money a Christian should give to the church” is a CHOICE.  God has no preference.  YOU
ARE FREE.

Next week we will begin “prosperity?”  According to scripture, how does a Christian become prosperous?

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
