Jesus taught us that our hearts follow our treasure. (Matt. 6:21). Giving is the most visible measurement of the condition of our hearts. Our values are put right on our money.
Honoring God with the first 10% of our money is called tithing. When we take this step of obedience the other 90% of our money comes under His blessing, protection and favor. (Malachi 3:11) Tithing is all about trusting. When we tithe locally, God brings increase, which enables us to give globally. (Proverbs 3:9) Prioritizing our money with a Kingdom order of tithing, sowing, saving, and then spending positions us to have money serve us as we serve God. Jesus taught us that we should tithe. (Matthew 23:23) Local churches receive our tithes on earth but Jesus our High Priest also receives it from heaven. (Hebrews 7:8) He said no one could serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24)
