It must not be forgotten, however, that act of tithing can be corrupted if the motive behind the tithing is impure, or if the use of the tithes is not honorable to God. After all, how many times have we heard of faith healers and ministers seeking love offerings, only to spend lavishly on themselves?
The important thing to keep in mind is that we must always ask for the Lord's blessing upon the contributions we give, to our churches, charities, loved ones, etc. Before every tithe, we should ask Him to allow our offerings to be used in a manner that is glorifying to Him and His Kingdom. Then can we feel at peace when dropping our checks in the offering bins.
