The Tithing Law of Prosperity
Tithing is a spiritual law dating back thousands of years. It is simply the action of giving back to the source of your spiritual sustenance. Usually this means your church, temple, mosque, or synagogue. The word tithe comes from Latin and means tenth. That’s why traditionally tithes are for ten percent.
Tithing is different from randomly sowing seeds or giving to charity. It is the way you acknowledge the source of your abundance and continue it in circulation.
I started tithing about 20 years ago when I began studying the laws of prosperity and I’ve been tithing ten percent of every dollar I’ve made since. Honestly, I began doing it out of fear. Now I tithe joyfully, lovingly, and gratefully.
You never know how your tithe will come back to you. Money is a pretty common way. But it could also come in the form of reconciliation with someone you’re estranged from, a gift, a new relationship, a healing, or a promotion. There are many ways your good can come back to you.
Here’s what I also believe. The universe will always get its tithe. You can do it voluntarily, or by force. But you always pay.
All those years I never tithed, I was always having my car break down, losing paychecks, having medical bills, and every other conceivable thing that kept me broke.
Remember, prosperity is about circulation. You have to keep your substance circulating, or it gets stagnant. When you tithe by choice, you invoke many of the other laws, including the law of giving and receiving, creating ripples of giving and abundance that eventually find their way back to you.
So what about you? Do you tithe or not – and how has that worked out for you?
