EXHORTATION: THE FEAR OF LORD
Deuteronomy 14: 22-23
"Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year . Eat the tithe of your grain , new wine and oil , and the firstborn of your herds and flocks in the presence of the Lord our God always"
The bible makes the purpose of tithing every clear to teach us to fear the Lord and to put him first in our lives. We are to give God the first and best of what we earn. For example , what we do first with our money shows what we value most giving the first part of our paycheck to God immediatly focuses our attention on him. It also remind us that all we have belongs to him . A habit of regular tithing can keep God at the top of our priority list and give us a proper perspective on everything else we have.
