2. The Bible asks for at least a tithe to be given in offering to God.
3. A tithe is never the goal of Christian giving; the tithe is the starting point.
4. Rarely, if ever, have I heard a tither complain about the lack of money to spend.
5. In comparison, lower-income Christians do not seem to resist tithing as much as higher-income Christians.
6. What would happen if most of our households tithed?
