The General Overseer of Living Faith Church, which is also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has revealed what should be the priority in people's covenant of stewardship.
In a video on his verified Facebook page, the man of God said that people should not pretend to be smarter than God. Oyedepo said, "Tithing should be the top priority in your financial stewardship. God doesn't need your tithe because he was the one who gave you everything you have." He said that the tithe that Abraham paid made him blessed in heaven and on earth. The tithe is ten percent of our gross income. The Bible says in Deuteronomy 14:22, "Thou shalt truly tithe all the increase of thy seed, that the field bringeth forth year by year." Oyedepo further said, "People who give to God must realize that giving is not a financial donation to God but a spiritual transaction that brings blessing from heaven." Christians must realize that all their resources belong to God, and anything they give to him is a fragment of the abundance that he has bestowed on them.
(For the sermon, fast forward the video to 7 hours, 5 minutes.)
