Ugh! I just had a really awesome post on tithing…but of course it disappears. Basically, I was trying to say that God is really working on my heart when it comes to tithing. I also wanted to say thank you to a God who blesses and provides, even when I doubt, over and over again! Praise the Lord.
Instead of running my mouth about tithing, I will just post some scripture 🙂
2 Chr 31:5
q The Israelites generously gave the firstfruits of their grain, new wine, oil and honey and all that the fields produced. They brought a great amount, a tithe of everything.
New International Version (NIV)
10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
2 Corinthians 9:7-
Let each one do just as he has resolved in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
Do you see that God is not angerly telling us to tithe, like the government demands us to pay taxes. Tithing is an act of worship. God does not need our money. The amount of money you choose to give is between you and God.
