WHY WE GIVE
At the Potter’s House, we understand that tithing isn’t just a good idea, or a religious idea: it is a powerful principle of the Kingdom.The word tithe comes from the Hebrew word ‘ma’aser’, meaning ‘a tenth’. In a practical sense, tithing means giving one tenth of all our wages, increase, or profits back to God.
Contrary to what many people believe, tithing isn’t an ‘Old Testament’ thing; Jesus himself warned us not to neglect tithing (Matt 23.23).
This is because it’s a practise of honouring God, and recognizing that our wealth comes from Him alone.
It comes down to this: that we give tithes like Abraham gave them – not by the Law but by faith. At every service, we give an opportunity for the congregation to tithe
