Tithing is an Old Testament principle, giving ten percent of what we have and hold to God. If you were to ask me if “tithing” is an important principle for today, I would say “no.” I think the invitation is not for 10 percent but for 100 percent. We are trustees of 100 percent of the life entrusted to us by God. The question then becomes how we should spend our lives, being the gifts that they are.
