Tithe is between man and God it shouldn’t be forced.

Matthew 23:23 “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law-justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things. Contrary to some believing tithe is no longer necessary, Jesus told Pharisees to continue to tithe. Paying tithe shouldn’t be an obligation, but from a point of understanding. It is better not to tithe than to tithe grudgingly. Hebrews 10:16 “This is the new covenant I will make with my people on that day, says the LORD: I will put my laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds.”

Believing is by faith. The law of Moses was not nullified but encompassed in the two important laws. Love God and love your neighbor. Romans 13:10 Love does no wrong to others, so love fulfills the requirements of God’s law. God promised to give us the laws directly. He speak to us in our hearts. There must be revelation why you do what you. Romans 3:31 Well then, if we emphasize faith, does this mean that we can forget about the law? Of course not! In fact, only when we have faith do we truly fulfill the law.

Be a cheerful giver.

The law of Moses

Before Jesus Christ came, the law was a necessity and a way of judgement. But now, faith in Jesus Christ is what you require. Galatians 3:19 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator.

The law only applies when you are alive but since you died with Christ, the law no longer have a hold on you. Romans 10:4 For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes.
