Want God's Blessings? - Tithe!

When you tithe, God will bless you! Tithing means setting aside the
first fruits of what the Lord has provided us and our family each week
for the house of the Lord. It so pleases him that he gives us a special
blessing for it.  Tithing recognizes that all fruit is a gift from God: the
job, good health, and circumstances that allow us to work to attain the
week’s fruit. We thank him by returning at least the first 10% back to
his house, where he is worshiped and where souls are saved. This
allows us to share in Christ’s work of saving souls! In our current
economy, it is easy to live in fear of future expenses for things that
turn to dust or maybe bills that you want to pay off as quickly as
possible. Instead, let us trust in our provider and creator above, the
one who has all control and for whom nothing is impossible.
Following his commands to tithe is a way to walk by faith that he will
fulfill his promises. Our Lord’s blessings await us in this test of faith
as we build a bridge leading souls safely to him.
