42 “What sorrow awaits you Pharisees! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens,£ but you ignore justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.

Luke 11:42 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

It’s possible to obey the details of the laws but still be disobedient in our general behavior. For example, we could be very precise and faithful about giving 10 percent of our money to God but refuse to give one minute of our time in helping others. Tithing is important, but giving a tithe does not exempt us from fulfilling God’s other directives.
