Deuteronomy 26: Our Debt to God

Old Testament Seminary Student Study Guide, (2002), 75


Does the Lord get some benefit when we pay our tithing? Why does He ask us to pay it? What does paying tithing do for us? What do you think is the difference between people who willingly pay their tithing and people who pay their tithing grudgingly? Think about these questions as you read what Moses taught the children of Israel in Deuteronomy 26.
