When we pay tithe, we are helping to spread the gospel. The Lord is coming so soon. We need to do everything that we can to help people around the world to come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. It is a joy working along with the Lord and His angels in getting His word out to as many as we can before He comes.

When we pay tithe, we are supporting the gospel workers in our church. Our pastors need our support so they can preach the gospel to those of us in the church.

“Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse; for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.” Malachi 3:7-11
