The tithe is discussed during this section. For those of you who might not be familiar with what the tithe is, the tithe is giving the church ten percent of what you have, so that each person no matter how rich or poor gives just as much of themselves as other people. It is not the amount that matters with the tithe so much as the sacrifice. There is a wonderful story in the New Testament about a poor woman who only gives a little bit of money because that is all they could afford. Jesus likes the offering from the woman more than the pretentious, rich people because he knows that that woman gave from her heart instead of for the sake of looking good, which is a bad reason for serving others or contributing to charities, although many celebrities do it for the sole reason of boosting their popularity.
