HDTG The fact that God does not design that persons should use the tithe at all in their own business, appears still more clearly when we consider verses 32, 33 as quoted above.

From Maimonides, a Jewish writer, we learn the method taken to avoid partiality in tithing the increase of the flocks: All the lambs were gathered into a fold in which was a door so small that but one lamb could pass out at a time. The dams were placed without, so that the young, hearing their bleating, would go out of the fold of their own accord to meet them, for no one was allowed to lead or drive them out.
The owner stood outside with a rod dipped in red coloring matter, and with this he touched every tenth lamb that passed out.
This was called causing them to pass under the rod Leviticus By the above means the tendency to select the poorest animals for the tithe was avoided. If, however, the owner took any measures to prevent an animal that he prized from being marked, by the tithing rod, or, after it had been marked, sought to keep it and put another and perhaps a poorer one in its stead, both the one that had been marked, and the one which he had thought to give in its stead, were to be given to the Lord. This seems to be a complete answer to the question whether when we have tithe that is not yet paid into the treasury, and have no ready money of our own, we may use the tithe in an emergency, and afterward pay it back.
Most assuredly we may not. If a man has money placed in his hands in trust for another, and he uses it in his own business, he is called an embezzler, if his act is discovered. It may be that he designed to pay it back, but this makes no difference in the eyes of the law. He may have done the same deed many times before he was found out, and each time succeeded in replacing the money, but his guilt was as great the first time as the last.
What is tithing? Tithing is giving God the first tenth of all your increase or income.
In the Old Testament, most tithes were given from produce or livestock, but in modern times we tithe with money since most of our increase is financial. In the Old Testament, there were different types of tithes and different types of offerings. While tithing is found in the law, it did not originate in the law. Many refer to Abraham as the first one to give a tithe in Genesis , but required gifts came long before that. We see an encounter between God and Cain in Genesis in which God rebukes Cain for not giving rightly.

What Does the Bible Say About Tithing?
This eventually led to Cain killing his brother out of jealousy and envy. At the core of tithing are many issues, but today I will only talk about three of them: trust, redemption, and the storehouse or church. First, God trusted us with what is His in the first place. He trusts us with an increase and lets us have 90 percent of it, but places a 10 percent sacred portion Deut. This sacred portion is entrusted to us and we are to return it to Him through the Church.
The second thing that tithing teaches us is redemption. The tithe is the first tenth or the first fruit of our increase. When God gave His Son to die on the cross for our sin, He redeemed us from the curse of the law.

- Leviticus - Whoever would redeem any of their tithe must add a fifth of the value to it.?
When we give our tithe we are worshiping God and recognizing His redemption. We are recognizing that through Christ we are redeemed and in turn God redeems and blesses the 90 percent that is our portion.
A Bible Devotion
Tithe is not the finish line for giving. Tithe is the starting point of giving.
Tithe, to me, is the training wheels to launch us into the right mindset in cultivating the right habits of giving. We make a big deal out of the pursuit of excellence in our vocations. We study, discuss, and even work hard to sharpen our skills towards our vocation.
