Dear Keith:
ABSOLUTELY NOT!  Jesus was not speaking to "us" at all, but to the lying, two-faced, murdering, hypocritical Pharisees and Scribes.  These Pharisees were under the OLD Covenant, not the New. They worshipped at the Temple in Jerusalem. They were under the Law of Moses.  They were REQUIRED BY THE LAW OF MOSES to tithe.
WE are not under the Old Covenant law of Moses. We are under a NEW Covenant.  There is no Temple anymore. There is no Levitical priesthood anymore.  There is no tithing to these priests of farm and agricultural products anymore.  Jesus never collected tithes for His Church or minstry. The Apostles accepted voluntary offerings from the heart, but never taught, or collected tithes from anyone. Paul never taught the Gentiles to tithe. They never instructed the Gentiles at the Jerusalem conference (Acts 15) to tithe. Gentiles never "tithed" to Paul or to anyone else. They voluntarily gave to the saints of Jeruslem, but they did not "tithe."  Money was never a tithable commodity. Etc., etc., etc.
God be with you,
