What I am about to tell you about is probably one of the least mentioned ways to increase prosperity, abundance and even happiness in our lives. If you truly believe that God is the source of your supply then you must do something definite and consistent to keep that rich source flowing.
We ask to be blessed with housing, clothes, money, jobs, love, health and so on for ourselves and others and we want it all for free. Do you expect your Doctor to work for free? Your mechanic, your Accountant you get the picture. Here is a secret, tithing affects every aspect of our lives not just our money. The key is that systematic giving opens the way for systematic receiving.
Consider that tithing is an act of faith that moves the universe. Through your acts of unselfish giving you attune your consciousness to that of universal abundance.
How to Tithe
Many of our ancestors felt that to put God first financially was a first step to prosperity and happiness. Give the first and best not the last and least or in other words pay God his ten percent first. Tithing should be paid first before paying bills or any other financial obligations. Many think that following this process will make the other 90% of your money go even further.
Should we tithe gross or net? Genesis 14:20 says “a tenth of all”. However this has been and can be debated at-length so I recommend that you do what makes you feel comfortable — by giving a tenth of either gross or net — just tithe.
Where to Tithe
The proper place to give your tithes is at the place where you receive your spiritual assistance and inspiration — whether that be a place of worship or the spiritual leader (minister, priest, etc.).
5 Surprises of Tithing
I had come to a time in my life when I lost just about everything, including my spouse, job, house, furniture, jewelry and then some. I was at a point in life when I felt that I had nothing else to loose, or maybe because it no longer mattered if I lost anything else that I promised God that from that point on I would give him his 10% first from any money that I obtained. I have never regretted this decision. Not to long ago a friend of mine and I were talking about what a quiet secret this is, because the more you tithe the more you have to tithe. If a week goes by and I do not have any money coming in I remind God that I need to get paid to pay him and I soon have money come to me that often appears to be out of the blue.
