To my knowledge Jesus did not collect tithes although He did have a treasurer known as Judas. So He got money from somewhere.

If however you are asking to keep from giving tithes then that is a different subject

Many churches preach that we must tithe, however Abraham gave a tithe to the order of Melchizedek long before the law. So should we give a tithe, yes. If Abraham gave a tithe under the grace covenant the so should we, the difference is Abraham beleived God for his blessings and prosperity. If you study Genesis you will see that God continued to bless Abraham in spite of his screw ups. We too should view our covenant with God in the same fashion. We give because we get to and God will always supply what I need every time I need it and then some. When we get legalistic under tithing we actually put ourselves under the law and don't get like we think we should but in actuality we do. If we put ourselves under the law and don't give 10% plus the other we are supposed to give under the law then that is why we don't get like we read in Malachi 3. Best thing is to give and trust God to take care of you,

2 Peter 1:3 seeing that his divine power hath granted unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that called us by his own glory and virtue; ASV

So it's all good, just trust in Him who loves you, I do.
