But as you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in all earnestness, and in our love for you— see that you excel in this act of grace also.
(2 Corinthians 8:7 ESV)
Tithing—giving our first fruits for God’s work on earth—shows our faith in His providence. Through our regular contributions, we are faithful stewards of all He has provided.
