And tithing 10% specifically is biblical, but that doesn’t mean you have to be a Christian to tithe.

You should be giving in some way.
Does God help those who don’t help themselves?
Christian minister Erwin Lutzer argues there is some support for this saying in the Bible (2 Thessalonians 3:10, James 4:8); however, much more often God helps those who cannot help themselves, which is what grace is about (the parable of the Pharisee and the Publican, Ephesians 2:4–5, Romans 4:4–5).

Keep your heart soft, and open to the Holy Spirit.
