“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.” (Matthew 6:19 – 20)

Tithing Q & A
What is tithing?
A tithe—which just means “tenth”—is defined as the first 10% of a person’s income that is to be given back to God
by giving back to your local church.
Tithing is a principle that is taught throughout the entire Bible. When we tithe, we are expressing worship in a tangible way by putting God first in our lives.
Bringing our tithes is an opportunity for us to give God our thanks, show God we trust Him, and fight against greed in our hearts, all while allowing us to be a part of the most important work in life that is spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ!
Do I give 10% of my income before or after taxes?
And do I factor in income from side hustles?
Ask yourself if you would like God to bless your gross income (income before taxes) or net income (income after taxes). Tithing is about giving God your best and first 10% — so it would ideally be putting Him above your taxes and giving 10% of your gross income.
As for your side hustle, the 10% you give should come from your entire income. So, yes you would give the first 10% of any new money coming in from side hustles as well.
What’s the difference between tithes and offerings?
Tithing is obedience.
An offering is generosity.
A tithe is a specific amount — 10% of your income — that you give first and an offering is anything extra that you give beyond that.
Can I set up recurring giving?
Yes! You can set up monthly recurring gifts online via PayPal or through your personal bank via bank transfer.
Is my giving tax deductible?
In Jamaica: Your giving is tax deductible, as ZEAL Ministries Limited is a charitable Jamaican organization. You can request documentation for your giving at any time.
In the USA: Your giving via PayPal is also tax deductible, as all donations are made through 501C3 GoTWO International.
Where does my giving go?)
