One Being the Church:
We must love, serve, encourage, teach, rebuke, and pray for one another as we seek to push one another toward God in Christ.
The New Testament talks about the importance and benefits of giving but nowhere speaks of a tithe requirement. We are to give as we are able and led. Sometimes that means giving more than 10 percent; sometimes that may mean giving less. It all depends on the ability of the Christian and the needs of the church. Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5). Above all, all tithes and offerings should be given with pure motives and an attitude of worship to God and service to the body of Christ. “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7).” www.gotquestions.org has a great article on this as well.
