What is a Tithe?

Tithing is giving 10% of your income. Within the Old Testament, the Israelites gave 10% of their earnings to the work of God. Tithing is a way of saying, “God, I believe that everything I have is a gift from you, and I trust you with all that I have.” When you tithe, you are expressing faith that God will continue to provide for you. And the good news is: He will! The Bible says, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you” (Luke 6:38).

Why Tithe?

Giving to God is not just a donation; it is recognizing that God has given to us first and everything is His. The Bible says, “The earth is the LORD’s and everything in it” (Psalm 24:1). We give because He owns everything, and He first gave to us.

The 90-Day Challenge

Tithing is a faith step. It’s like planting seeds for a harvest. You sow. You wait ten or twelve weeks. Then you reap. You don’t reap the day you sow, there’s an interval in between. In Malachi 3:9-11 we find the only place in Scripture where God invites people to test him:

“‘You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.  I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,’ says the Lord Almighty.”

Based on the principles in this Scripture, if you will tithe faithfully, from every paycheck for the next ninety days, if, at the end of those ninety days you do not feel blessed by God in whatever way you define a blessing (which could be monetary or otherwise), as long as you’ve documented your giving by doing it online, by check, or filled in your information on your giving envelope so we can verify what you’ve given, we will refund your full tithe.

In 1991, Hal and Lori Seed came to Oceanside to open a new church – one that would welcome people from all walks of life, no matter their spiritual depth or background. Since that time, New Song has seen many lives changed by the Spirit of Jesus and the love and friendships of members of the church.
