Tithing Is More Than Giving
The word "tithe" means a tenth or 10%. A tithe is the first 10% of your earnings. An offering is anything you give above and beyond the 10%. When you give your tithe/offering to the church, it goes towards a part of the general budget for the purpose of church operations. Most importantly, God wants our hearts to be cheerful as we give. As we give, it shouldn’t be done under compulsion or reluctantly. God worries more about our hearts than our money.

There are different ways you can give beyond your tithe.
