Tithing for righteousness?
It’s stewardship month here at St. Paul’s UCC. Next week is Pledge Sunday, the day when we will ask one another to pledge our financial support for this congregation for the coming year. A frequent sermon topic during Stewardship month at many churches is the idea of tithing. A tithe is a biblical concept which describes the Israelite practice of giving one/tenth of your harvest to God, or to the temple in Jerusalem. During stewardship month, preachers often talk about the need to give a tithe of your income; how to work out what your tithe should be, and how you might slowly build from giving one to two percent of your income up to ten.
