Tithing can be a very controversial subject for some. I have heard my share of reasons from the people around me why I should or shouldn’t.
Now me, I choose to tithe. I started when I was a teenager and have done so since then. I won’t say that I felt that the “invisible finger” was pointing at me during the times when I didn’t, but my personal conviction does kick in; none the less, I do so enjoyable to increase the kingdom of God.
Now someone may want to know why I tithe and what is the biblical basis that I am standing on when I do.
So normally in church we read from Malachi 3:8-12 before we tithe but the scripture I am standing on is;
Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine. ~Proverbs 3:9-10.
My life is and has always been a testimony of God’s endless goodness, mercy, grace, love and all the other good stuff that he has given me and done for me.
Before I make any major decisions, I gladly tithe or give an offer and ask God for his protection, wisdom, guidance, and my desired outcome.
Now to some that can sound like I’m paying for my own desired outcome, but it’s far from that. As a matter of fact some people get it wrong all around about tithing.
Ultimately it’s about trusting God and taking your faith outside of the tangible things. When I pry of my life’s situations and tithe, I am telling God that my trust is in you and not in this circumstance or my money, but in HIS ability to make my life right in him.
Also I do care a lot about whether people are saved around the world and stand firmly with funding that. This is something that I value.
I encourage you all to tithe,
