I find it interesting that the Lord told them to give the whole tithe to help others, rather than to the tabernacle.
The Lord values the helpless and needy in our world. Why don’t we?
To be perfectly honest, sometimes we tithe to someone or something else besides our actual church. Sometimes, a missionary or an organization is impressed on us so strongly that we give our tithe for the Lord’s work there.
The Lord’s work.
The tithe is the Lord’s, not my church’s or your church’s or your pastor or priest’s. As long as you know that it is going to support the work of the Lord, it is right.
