    2. WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY DEFINES TITHING AS A TAX OR GIVING OF ONE-TENTH, ESPECIALLY COLLECTED TO SUPPORT CHURCHES. TITHING IS A PRINCIPLE THAT WAS INSTITUTED EVEN BEFORE THE LAW OF MOSES. ABRAHAM WAS THE FIRST TO TITHE -SEVEN HUNDRED YEARS BEFORE THE LAW. OF WHAT POSSESSIONS DID ABRAHAM TITHE? (GENESIS 14:17-20)
    3. WHAT WAS THE COVENANT THAT JACOB MADE WITH GOD? (GENESIS 28:22)

    6. HOW MUCH OF OUR TITHE DO WE HAVE TO BRING? (MALACHI 3:10)
    7. WHERE DO WE BRING OUR TITHES AND OFFERINGS? (MALACHI 3:10)
    8. WHEN IT COMES TO OUR SPIRITUAL GROWTH AND SAFETY, OUR “STOREHOUSE” IS THE LOCAL CHURCH THAT WE ATTEND. WHY DO WE BRING OUR TITHES? (MALACHI 3:10)
    9. THE “FOOD” OR “MEAT” THAT WE NEED TO HAVE “ON THE TABLE” IN OUR LOCAL CHURCH IS SOLID TEACHING FROM THE WORD OF GOD.

    14. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TITHES AND OFFERINGS? (MATTHEW 23:23 & LUKE 6:38)TITHES ARE USUALLY TO BE GIVEN TO SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL CHURCH. IF YOU ARE TEMPORARILY WITHOUT A CHURCH MAKE YOUR TITHE TO A MINISTRY THAT IS PROVIDING YOU SPIRITUAL FOOD AND SUPPORT. AN OFFERING CAN BE GIVEN TO WHATEVER PERSON OR MINISTRY THAT THE LORD LAYS ON YOUR HEART.
