Jesus taught in Matthew 6, there is a connection between our hearts and our wallets. He knew the biggest competitor for our trust and dependence on Him was money. Giving is an opportunity to tangibly demonstrate we trust Him above anything else. When we give, we’re saying we believe God can do more with part of our money than we can do with all of it.
Every tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the trees, is the Lord’s; it is holy to the Lord. Leviticus 27:30
Tithing is a way we worship God, because it shows Him that we trust His provision in our lives. “Tithe” means ten percent, which is the portion of our income that we give to God to say thank you for all He has given us. God doesn’t need our money, He wants our trust, and trusting Him with our finances is a great way to demonstrate our dependence on Him.
