The truth beind tithing is really a principle and a law more than anything else. (principle first)It is an axiamatic principle, meaning the principle of sowing and reaping, was not to get something from God as it is preached in so many Christian circles but comes from the Old Testiment...Gen 8:22 as Noah built an alter and sacrificed unto God, God said that He would never again curse the ground for mankind's sake...and "while the earth remained these four things shall never pass away...sead time and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, and day and night. Seed time and harvest is an axiamatic principle that opperates according to one thing...sowing seed. If you sow seed you WILL reap a harvest. it is a law...just like day and night and summer and winter
People question God's will constantly. "is it his will for me to go here, go there, do this or that? Is it his will for me to walk in blessings or struggle? The truth is God gave us some laws to help us with this. The law of seed time and harvest. Not one time in my life have I ever set my alarm clock for 5:00 a.m. so I could run outside and make sure the sun is going to come up. Not one time have I questioned God concerning the sun coming up or not. WHY? the law in Gen 8:22. While the earth remains the sun will come up. while the earth remains I (we) have a promise from God that if we sow a seed we will reap a harvest.
That is why preaching tithes and offerings the way Paul did to the Corinthians in the manner of sowing sparingly and reaping sparingly should be preached today.
