GOD IS A GIVER
God is a giver. He gives us everything from essential provisions, like the food we eat, to equipping power, self-discipline, and love. Because of His deep love for us, He gave us the ultimate gift of eternal life with Him through the gift of His Son. HighPoint Community Church is committed to modeling this spirit of giving, and one of the primary ways we can do this is through returning our tithes to God and giving offerings with a cheerful heart.
What is a tithe and what is an offering?
"A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord." - Leviticus 27:30 (NIV)
We are stewards, not owners, of what God has entrusted to us. Therefore, tithing is bringing back what is God’s to God, and He entrusts us with the remainder to use appropriately.
A tithe is a mathematical term and literally means 10%.
"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." - Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices - mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law - justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former." - Matthew 23:23 (NIV)
Any amount above 10% is considered an offering to God. This type of giving is over and above the tithe and should be done with cheerfulness.
