Tithing Is But Dross - Poem by Richard Merrell

I used to tithe in years gone by
As to the church I went
I used to tithe in years gone by
And give my ten percent.

But God's Spirit spoke to me these words
'Richard do this for me'
God's Spirit spoke to me these words
'Stop tithing, be set free.'

'But Lord' said I with bated breath
'Men taught me I MUST tithe,
now you say to me instead,
don't tithe, but be alive? '

The answer that God's Spirit gave
Was, 'Tithing is but dross'
The answer that God's Spirit gave
Was, 'Find it at the Cross.'

For that answer I did seek
Then I stopped my tithe
For at the Cross I remembered that
Yeshua is alive!

So now I understand that
In the Messiah I've been set free
To live my life by faith
For Yeshua bought all of me.

My body, soul and spirit;
Yeshua purchased all at the Cross,
I am His, He is mine
And tithing is, but dross.

1 Corinthians 6: 20
