“So let each one give as he purposes in his heart…….For if there is first a willing mind, it is accepted according to what one has, and not according to what he does not have”
Did Paul ever talk about tithing (giving 10% of the income you earn to the church you go to)? If you believe that you have to tith to a church every sunday you put yourself under bondage because you make it a law. If you cannot afford to tith you may feel guilty or condemned. Paul gives us the freedom to give according to our heart. I believe we should give according to the leading of the Holy Spirit (who he puts on your heart to give to and how much).
What would the church look like if tithing was not preached as a duty or commandment? Does tithing put unbelievers off from going to a church. “They just want my money”
There is a real freedom in giving according to our heart and not according to a law.
