While tithing was established as the basic pattern of giving in the Old Testament, the New Testament neither legislates nor dismisses the tithe. Pulling from the whole Bible’s wisdom, Alistair Begg explains how the grace of giving supersedes the particular percentage of a tithe. The Bible’s guidelines encourage Christians to practice a personal pattern of regular and proportionate giving based on God’s ownership of all we have. Beginning with the local church and expanding outward, our sacrificial gifts will honor God.
1Now concerning1 the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do.
