10 Percent Tithes Bible Verse New Testament
We all know the story of how Jesus Christ fed the 5,000 people using only five loaves and two fishes. But what we don’t always think about is how many loaves and fishes that actually would have been! If you were one of those 5,000 people and had just been fed by Jesus Christ Himself, would you be willing to give up one tenth of what you had received in order to show Him your gratitude? Well… yes! That’s exactly what He expects us to do with our wealth when we tithe. In this post we’ll explore some Bible verses that teach us the importance and necessity of giving 10 percent back to God through our tithes.
- Matthew 5:24
Jesus Christ said, “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I am the Lord your God.”
In this passage, Jesus says that God is the source of all good things. Without God, there would be no life and no blessings of any kind. God gives us everything we need to live our lives, and he wants us to give him a portion of what we have earned so that he can continue to bless others through us.
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” (Matthew 6:24)
This verse reveals that God is our true Master, not money. Therefore, we should give our tithes to Him first so that He has enough resources to meet all our needs!
The Bible is clear that we should give to the poor. In Luke 12:33, Jesus says, “Sell your possessions and give alms” (NIV). He tells us to sell our possessions, which is a way of saying “give them away.” The Greek word translated “sell” literally means “reduce its value by selling it.” This idea is repeated in Matthew 6:19-21 when Jesus says:
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven…where moth and rust do not destroy…” (ESV)
What does this mean? It means that you must not be greedy or selfish with your money; instead you should give it away so others may be helped. We must remember that we are stewards of God’s possessions and not owners of them!
In Luke 18:10, Jesus says that if you have not given a tenth of all you have, then you have not given anything at all. This is one of the most well-known verses in the Bible on tithing.
However, this verse was not written as a reference to taxes or government donations, but instead as a commandment for how Christians should give to God and his kingdom on earth. In other words, Christians should give away ten percent of their income voluntarily and willingly because they want to do so; they are not required by law or force to do so.
So, what does the Bible say about tithing? Well, if you’re a Christian and you believe that the Bible is God’s Word, then you know that it’s pretty clear about this topic—tithing is a commandment. Here are some verses from the New Testament that discuss tithing:
- “Tithe all your income” (Malachi 3:10)
- “Honor God with your wealth and give him first place in everything.” (1 Timothy 6:17)
- “…they were determined to keep back for themselves some of the gifts and offerings due to the Lord.” (2 Chronicles 31:1)
Romans 8:32 – “He who did not spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?”
This is a great verse because it teaches that God has already given you a gift. You can’t earn it or buy it, but He gave it to you freely. If God has given something to you that was so precious and valuable that he gave his own Son for you then surely He will give everything else as well.
1 Corinthians 16:2
2 Now concerning the collection for the saints: as I directed the churches of Galatia, so you also are to do.
2 Corinthians 9:7
- “God loves a cheerful giver.”
- The Bible says that if you give cheerfully, you will be blessed. But if you are grudgingly giving, then the curse of God will come upon you.
- You can’t just give to God and expect something back from Him. If this is all about getting something in return, then it’s not really giving, is it?
- The more we take out our wallets, it seems as though there’s always someone taking more than they put in–and they’re doing so with a big smile on their faces!
Jesus Christ commands us to give a tenth of all we have if we want to be accepted by Him.
Jesus Christ commands us to give a tenth of all we have if we want to be accepted by Him. Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus Christ is the Messiah.
The Bible is clear that if you want to be accepted by God, you must give Him a tenth of all that He has given you. This is one of the most important things that we can do for our relationship with God and it will bring about blessings and rewards beyond anything we could ever imagine. If you are looking for a way to improve your life today, start giving ten percent of what you have towards charity or helping others!
