What is Tithing

Tithing is a financial principle that has existed since ancient times! Melchizedek and Abraham were asked by the Lord to pay tithing, and this commandment has continued in our day. The payment of tithes is a blessing. We are better able to remember that all we have belongs to God. We are able to help move the work of the kingdom of God forward, and we are blessed beyond measure in our own personal lives as we pay tithing. We hope this lesson will strengthen testimonies about the law of tithing as you family studies this week!

Invite one of the children to hold the cup to receive God’s “blessings” in the cup. Invite everyone to take turns naming specific blessings that they have received from Heavenly Father. Each time someone names a blessing, drop a single grain of rice into the cup. After everyone has had a turn to name a few blessings, read the following verse.

“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house; and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing
