Under the New Testament system God no longer requires just a 10% tithe as He did in the Old Testament. Do you know what He requires now?–100%! He expects you to give your whole life and everything you own for the Lord, in full-time service, as much as you can! The tithe is God’s second best! It’s an easy way out for those who are not willing to give all!
But there are others who are in full-time service for the Lord, devoting their full time and energies and everything to preaching the Gospel, and still tithing whatever income God gives them! They are 110%ers! They are actually already giving 100%, plus tithing 10% of their income! They’re giving their whole lives and their time and their strength and serving the Lord completely full-time–plus tithing 10%!
Those people could say, “We are giving our full time for the Lord and God’s service! It’s all going into the Lord’s work. We’ve already forsaken all!–What have we left to give?”–Well, Jesus’ disciples had also forsaken all, yet still He said unto them: “Freely ye have received, also freely give!” (Mat.10:8).
Those are the 110%ers!–Giving 100% of their lives, plus tithing 10% of their income!–Are you one?
