Why Most Pastors Preach About Tithe And Offering

Your Tithe is 1/10 of your gross income while your offering is what you give over your tithe. You should ensure that you consistently give your tithe to God to attract His blessings. However, here are 4 reasons why Pastors preach about Tithe and Offering:

1. The Bible Commands It

In the book of Proverbs 3:9-10, the Bible says,

"Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase, So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine."

This is a basic commandment from The Bible for every believer and it is a reason why our pastors now preach it. People like Abraham and Jacob give their tithes, so as Christians, we should also learn how to give our tithes.

2. Basic Misconceptions

There are a lot of misconceptions about tithe and offerings. Some people fe3el that pastors are using it as an avenue to beg for money while some others feel that it is not compulsory. These are reasons why pastors now spend time preaching it so that they can clear people's ignorance and misconceptions about tithes and offerings.

3. Personal Experience

Bishop Oyedepo once revealed that the secret behind his church's growth and advancement is tithing. He has always given his tithe and God has always blessed him. This is a reason why he will always preach about it to his members so that they can also attract the blessings of God.

4. Givers Reluctance

Some pastors realize the fact that their members are reluctant to give tithe. Some people do not see the need of giving a tithe to a pastor who is far richer than them. They feel that they are adding to the pastor's wealth and reducing their own wealth. This is another reason because the members need to be oriented and thought that tithe is for God and not for the pastor. He is just an agent.

In conclusion, when you are giving your tithe and offering, you should have it as a mindset that it is God you are giving and not your pastor. Don't be deceived by misconceptions and deceivers who asked you to pay tithes to them before they can pray for you. It is free will.
