QUESTION: Wade has a wife who is about to receive a sizable inheritance. Should they tithe on that?

ANSWER: There’s no indication in Scripture that you tithe on inheritance. I think if you give money on an inheritance, it would be considered more of an offering. It never hurts to give. But I don’t think you have a biblical mandate to tithe on an inheritance. Scripture seems to indicate that the “tithe” is on the money that you earn.
