Numbers 18:26 Thus speak unto the Levites, and say unto them, When ye take of the children of Israel the tithes which I have given you from them for your inheritance, then ye shall offer up an heave offering of it for the LORD, even a tenth part of the tithe.
God gave the Levites the tithe. They were to receive a tenth of all the produce of Israel. It was their inheritance. It was God giving them what they needed to live.
All of us live by what God gives us. He gives us life, the ability to work, the strength, the knowledge, literally everything. We honor Him by giving back a portion of what He has given us.
The men of God lived by offerings, but those offerings weren’t from the people. They were from God. The Levites needed to acknowledge God just like everyone else. All I have comes from God. I honor Him by giving back to Him!
