 —“The Bible didn’t address your status as far as tithe is concerned. He didn’t specify whether you’re a student or a worker. Because it didn’t mention the word ‘salary’. It says ” Of Your Increase”.

“Of your Increase” means “Of your income” however you have been blessed. It depends on if you got an income. Therefore, you tithe from whatever God has blessed you with.

And remember! We don’t have to tithe so that God can get something out of it. It’s for our benefit. You see, It’s that partnership that you come into with the Lord and that ensures your continual increase.

Constantly, He multiplies that which we give to Him. He never owes you. He never takes anything from you to keep you without. It’s never a deduction, it’s always an increase.

So remember, tithing is more to your benefit than it is to anyone else. So… It didn’t say that if you are a student don’t tithe or not. No!

He just said, “Of All Your Increase”. Anyone who receives an increase should tithe. Because by tithing, you are recognizing and declaring that he was the one that blessed you. In addition, you’re declaring a reaffirm of your partnership with Him in everything.

God lives in a realm that’s different from the one in which we live on this earth. So that partnership is important. That makes us work together. It’s a “koinonia”. That is the Greek word! It means partnering and fellowshipping together.
