Tithing—a Joy, Not a Burden

Tithing—a Joy, Not a Burden

There’s a great principle throughout the whole Bible. It’s a principle about the importance of staying fresh in all we do for God. It is human nature to grow tired of most everything we do.

  • We see it in sports: rookies versus veterans.
  • We see it on the job: “Anyone can do a good job the first year.”
  • We see it in marriage.
  • We see it in raising children.

“Let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”[1]

The people and the priest had become weary of tithing. They still did it, but their hearts were not in it.[2]

Is it possible to tithe and still, in some measure, feel like we are under a curse? Yes, if we scorn it and don’t give it joyfully.
