Tithing

Genesis 14:20 And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.

Tithing is a dirty word in today’s society. It is the word people rebel against because they think the church is after their money. They work at denying any reason for giving to God and His work. They say that tithing was only a thing of the law, but this verse is way before the law. This happens in Abraham’s lifetime. After Abraham, you will have the entire lives of Isaac, Jacob, the Twelve Patriarchs, and 400 years of slavery before tithing is instituted under the law of Israel.

So this tithing predates the law. This tithing simply happened because a man wanted to bless the highest God. This tithing happened because a man recognized what God had done in his life.

What do you think about this verse?
