In the course of time Abel brought one of the best first-lings of his flock to the Lord. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering. ~ Genesis 4:3a, 4
Giving as an Act of Worship
The call to tithe — to give a tenth of our blessings back to the Lord — is a practice that begins with Abraham in the Book of Genesis, and even before him in the offering of Abel the Just. The act of giving a portion of one's earnings to the Lord is a form of worship. For all that we have received, we are also called to respond in gratitude.

Ways to Give
Giving is not simply confined to monetary means. Tithing is a spiritual discipline and can be practiced in other areas of our lives, including time, talent, and treasure. Is there some area that you are called to give more than before?
