“Behold, now it is called today until the coming of the Son of Man, and verily it is a day of sacrifice, and a day for the tithing of my people; for he that is tithed shall not be burned at his coming.” – Doctrine & Covenants 64:26
” Let us show our faith in the Lord by paying our tithing. Pay it first; pay it honestly.” – Carl B. Pratt
