According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “to tithe” means “to pay or give a tenth part of one’s income especially for the church.” The practice of tithing originates from the Hebrew scriptures and became part of Western Christian practices. While today it is mostly a voluntary contribution, certain churches make it a requirement for their members to tithe.
