"Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow." - James 1:17 NLT
What is amazing about the teachings in the Old Testament on tithing is not that God demands a tithe from His people, but that He does not demand it all back! Everything was created by Him and everything belongs to Him. God wants us to have life and have it abundantly, but not at the expense of forgetting where it all came from in the first place and to whom it all really belongs!
