Like most people, I didn't want to hear about tithing. I think my biggest problem with it was some of the people who constantly talked about it. You know the kind, send $1000 and get your house paid off. It is understandable why so many people judge all tithing by the actions of certain people.
The Bible speaks hundreds of times about tides and first fruits. The churchs back in the beginning helped people every which way, especially in the early Christian churches. There was no one else to help, so it was vital to get tithes.
Churches today are little different. Some of the bigger ones have various outreaches to help the poor all over the world. Some local churches do what they can.
Matthew 25:42-45, explains that what you do, or don't do you are doing it to Christ. In tithing, you are fulfilling the mandate from Jesus. Make sure you do it happily, because it does no good doing it grudgingly.
God does payback tides. It isn't always with money, but no matter how it comes back to you, it is more than you gave. Many times it comes back as money you don't have to spend. Things such as cars lasting longer with no repairs and so on. Then you have other things like a refi on your house, good deals, maybe a good return on an investment you have, just to name a few.
Keep in mind that God will never go back on His Word. Whether it is tithing or anything else, if He said it, it is. Have a blessed day. Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
