Tithing is not just about money, you can donate your time too.
"A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed." ~ Proverbs 11:25
Most people think of tithing as money you put on the plate that is being passed around at church.
The actual definition of the word "tithe" comes from Old English, which means one-tenth or 10 percent of a part of one's income to a religious organization. In Medieval times, tithe meant 10 percent of one's agricultural products. In the Orthodox Jewish tradition, one tithes 10 percent to a charity.
Tithing in Modern Times
Today, in the new thought context of the law of attraction, tithing refers to giving of one's time, talent and treasure, the latter of which refers to 10 percent of one's income given to the source from where you receive your spiritual sustenance, such as a church. Your tithe can also take the form of volunteering your time and service to a charity or non-profit organization, donating clothes to Goodwill, and even random acts of kindness.
Whenever I experience a lack of prosperity, especially in business and finances, I ask my Higher Guidance what I need to do to attract more business and money in my life. The answer I always hear is to ask myself where in my life is there lack and where can I give of my time, talent and treasure. For example, every time I tithe to my church, I receive emails and phone calls from clients within a day or two requesting my services.
Giving for the Right Reasons
There is, however, a catch, if you will. If you tithe because you feel obligated and your heart isn't into it, you may not reap the benefits in return. But if you tithe because you love giving unconditionally of your time, talent and treasure, you will inevitably reap the rewards, be it more business, extra income or an unexpected financial gain, and it will raise your vibration in the process. In other words, it's not about the obligatory task of tithing, it's how you feel about giving.
