Tithing is going out of style, but it shouldn’t. I am concerned with the attitude towards tithe that people under the age of 45 seem to have. Tithing is seen as optional, not a command from the Lord. Statistics show a decrease in tithing from Generation X and Busters. Like all giving, members of these younger generations don’t like giving to a general pot, but they want to have more control over their giving. This is a very beneficial attribute when it comes to donations and causes. However, the tithe is not like charitable giving or an offering. A tithe is obeying God by giving to the local body you are assigned to. How will that church spend the money? Important to know, but ultimately it’s not your entire responsibility. Your responsibility is to obey.
