God gives us all that we have. He is our source, no matter how hard we imagine we work. For everything God gives us, he requires aportion of it as a sign of worship and thanksgiving. This teaches us to depend on God and to continue to worship Him as our only source, regardless of our labour.

The word “tithe” means a tenth of something, and it refers to the mandatory cessions due to God as a sign of worship. Tithe is therefore not optional but mandatory. Tithe is a debt owed to God. That means when we don't tithe, we become debtors to the Most High. Actually, he has very strong and choice vocabulary for this act, he calls it robbery. “Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask, how do we rob you? In Tithes and Offerings.” Malachi 3:8. Tithe is therefore something we pay and the offering is what we give to God from the abundance of His blessings. The offering a free will gesture and is based on how much God has been benevolent to us. Failure to tithe results in a curse. This curse takes the form of God closing our opportunities and resources. We will live in scarcity and obscurity, retrogression, limitation and oppression.

Several blessings accompany those who tithe and give offerings. Firstly God opens the floodgates of heaven so that we are not able to contain His blessings. Secondly God will prevent misfortunes and pests from hurting and diminishing our fortunes. Thirdly, he will make all grace abound to us so that we will be abundant and prosper in all things.
Our attitude towards offering and tithing must also be aligned to God's heart. Firstly, we must bring the whole tithe into the house of God. Secondly, we must be generous, and sow bountifully into the Kingdom of God. Thirdly, we must give decisively. This means we must make a decision in advance of how much we will give to God. Fourthly, we must give willingly, and not reluctantly or under pressure. Our attitude as we give must be joyful and not begrudging or sad.

Lastly, we must separate bread from seed. We must eat the bread and plant the seed. God gives us  verything, that is both the bread and the seed, but it is up to us to separate the bread from the seed. If we eat everything, we will have nothing to sow for the next season. The seed is the tithe and offering.
