Yesterday I learned something new, which seemed rather strange to me. This strange concept was that of tithing, which is the practice of gifting ten percent of your total income to religious bodies or charity.

My thoughts on the practice of tithing

Living in the United Kingdom and not being connected to any religious groups, as I prefer to follow my own spiritual path, I had not previous encountered the practice of tithing. So where did I stumble across the concept of tithing I hear you ask, well it was mentioned in a Joe Vitale book about attracting money. Joe Vitale talked about tithing as if it was common practice, which I guess it is in many areas of the world and by giving away ten percent of more of your income as you do in tithing, you will attract more money back.

Although the concept of tithing is a little odd I can see both the benefits and logic behind it, and the theory that you will receive more money back than you give away. I will try and explain myself a bit better, when you give to people in need especially those close to you they remember what you have done for them and will return the favor when needed. People always remember the nice guys and we all prefer to deal with those who are helpful, polite and kind hearted, acting in this way always helps to build trust.

Although tithing is a new concept to me it is not a million miles away from my own principles, as although I do not give away large amounts of money on a regular basis I always go out of my way to help people in whatever way I can. As a concept tithing is not for me as I prefer not to be tied to things so that I am free to focus my money where I feel it is needed at any one point, but I have respect and admiration for those who are willing to tithe their income.

These are my thoughts on tithing, I would love to hear what your opinions and beliefs on this subject.

the concept of tithing comes from God , and although He doesn't personally need our money ...His work on earth does .... and so , when we tithe to our local church , God makes sure that when we have a need , that need will always be met , and not necessarily through the source through which we tithe .
Many blessings to you
