Donating to charity can be one of the most fulfilling things you do. It not only helps those in need but also has positive consequences for the donor. A recent study found that people who donate to charity are more likely than those who don’t to feel happiness, life satisfaction, or other positive emotions.

Offerings and tithing are part of the biblical teaching on giving back to God what is His. Tithing and offerings are acts of worship that show our gratitude to God for His goodness. Giving generously blesses others and God also gives blessings.
What are offerings and tithes? Why are they so important?
According to the Bible, giving a tithe (or 10% of one's income) to God is an act that is considered obedience. It is often used as a starting point in Christian giving. Offerings are gifts that go beyond the 10% limit, and are usually given in response to a particular need or cause. Offerings and tithes are essential resources for the Church as well as those in need.
It is clear in the Bible that generous giving should be encouraged. God tells us in Malachi that we should bring the entire tithe to the storehouse so there is food in our house. You can test me by this... and see if you won't open the floodgates to heaven and pour out so many blessings that you don't have room.
Giving to God is an essential part of living a faith-based life. A tithe, or offering, can be a powerful way of showing your gratitude and love for Him. Don't be afraid of giving generously! Every bit helps and God may use it to bless others.
We can have faith that God will do amazing things in our lives if we follow the scriptures and make our offerings and tithes. Let's be generous with our money and show God we love Him.
