Better Understanding Why People Tithe

Tithing is a familiar term to churchgoers, but even non-churchgoers usually have a passing knowledge of what it means to tithe. Biblical tithing numbers in most churches have been set at about 10{17240e3b7a2207949b137ad808f238f3340a03a13fe33cbed26335f0fae29af4} of whatever your income is. A history of tithing can help explain where this number came into being and why we still follow it, for the most part, today. When churchgoers earn money, they feel that they owe a portion of their income back to the house of God. Regular tithers frequently use the 10{17240e3b7a2207949b137ad808f238f3340a03a13fe33cbed26335f0fae29af4} number, but it can differ depending on what your needs are at the time. Everyone goes through rough patches in life and might have difficulty giving up even 10{17240e3b7a2207949b137ad808f238f3340a03a13fe33cbed26335f0fae29af4} of their income to tithing. Churches don’t usually encourage you to give up income you cannot spare, but many people stick to tithing regularly no matter how little they’re able to give.
