God spoke to Aaron once again during those trying 38 years of wandering. This time it was to remind him of several very important matters. One was the subject of tithing. God Explains Tithing. A tithe is a tenth part of anything, especially the tenth of one's increase, whether it be in wage income, livestock or crops. A tenth part of anyone's increase belongs to God. God uses it for His work. In Old Testament times the Levites did His physical work. So God paid them for their work by His tithes. This tithe, which is actually God's, became the only inheritance of the Levites, inasmuch as they were not to own farming land on which to earn an income. They were to live and carryon God's work with this tenth, and in turn were to tithe a tenth of what they received from God by giving it to Aaron's family, which held the high priesthood. (Numbers 18:8-32.)
