Bringing the tithe literally means giving a tenth of your income, bonuses, profit and increase to the House of God. However, the Bible says the tithe is not just 10%. Because all acts of obedience are married to faith God wants us to bring the tithe FIRST.
If God is first in your life, everything else will be in order. The principle of bringing the first fruits, the tithe, to the place God fills you spiritually, helps to ensure you are putting God first in your life.
