While many people use the word “tithe” synonymously with any giving related to the church, the word tithe means “tenth.” (Matthew 23:23). The tithe was a mandatory donation from Moses' law that demanded 10 percent of the first-fruits of an Israelite. The first part was restored to Him, as He provided the harvest. This was a sign of appreciation for His support. This also provided for the priesthood of Levites, festivals and the needy.
DO CHRISTIANS TITHE?
There's a lot of confusion about whether the Christian tithe comes from terminology. The Israelites were supposed to give to God 10 percent of their wealth in the Old Testament. The tithe or “tenth portion” was a statutory requirement. And that's also a little deceptive, since the Israelites gave about 23 percent of their income when you add in all of their income (Number 18:21)
Technically the tithing comes under the law; it comes under the Old Testament. Seed It called faith tithing, and we could call it pre-tithing, except it's not based on 10% of what you've received.
Seeding has a future effect and is done beforehand. It works in the same way as when you pray for your food and say, “Thank you, God, for what I am about to receive.” With seeding, you say, “Before I receive it, I recognize it.” Seeding says, “I know that this future event will come through the grace of God.” It could be money, better health, a change of job, and so on (Galatian 6:7).
So my question is what is the difference between Tithe and Seed.
