Validating feelings bible
For the sake of brevity, I won’t list them all here, but these are a few of the most popular Bible verses about tithing: “Then Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine.
He was priest of God Most High, and he blessed Abram, saying, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Creator of heaven and earth.
Bill Miller (source) answers it: Before that, there was a bigger picture of HONORING God with one’s substance.
An honoring occurs when something that is of value to the one doing the giving is freely or voluntarily giving to someone as a sacrificial gesture of thanksgiving or appreciation.
But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness.
You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.” So if you have been wondering what Jesus said about tithing or if “tithe” is in the New Testament, you have it right there in Luke .
The concept of tithing was actually around before the old covenant was established. It was purely a VOLUNTARY act of gratitude to HONOR “the Most High God, Possessor of heaven and earth.” Abram simply appreciated God’s FAVOR and gave up something of value in order to HONOR the One who had helped him get the victory.” – Rev.
In addition, even during that time after the tithe was instituted at the beginning of the Israelites’ second year in the wilderness, God PREFERRED Friend, giving to God is about HONORING Him for the great things He has done in our lives. We are not REQUIRED to tithe under the New Covenant.
But where is the scripture that says we can stop honoring God under the New Covenant?
