Tithing – The History
The first Biblical reference on tithing is in the Book of Genesis, 28:22, when Jacob tells God “Of everything you give me, I will faithfully return a tenth part to you.” The tithe is a call for us to place God first rather than to place our own wants before others’. It keeps us connected with God and we see a different set of values based on God’s wishes rather than on the “stuff” we accumulate.
