Resources To The Lord’s Work.
Think about, discuss or pray about the verse that relates most to your life:
Luke 11:42 (Jesus said) “Though you are careful to tithe even the smallest part of your income, you completely forget about justice and the love of God. You should tithe, yes, but you should not leave these other things undone.”
Deuteronomy 14:22,23 Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce…The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.
Exodus 22:29 You must be prompt in giving Me the tithe…
Malachi 3:8-11 “Will a man rob God? Surely not! And yet you have robbed me. “’What do you mean? When did we ever rob you?’ “You have robbed me of the tithes and offerings due to me. And so the awesome curse of God is cursing you…Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so that there will be food enough in my Temple; if you do, I will open up the windows of heaven for you and pour out a blessing so great you won’t have room enough to take it in! “Try it! Let me prove it to you! Your crops will be large, for I will guard them from insects and plagues. Your grapes won’t shrivel away before they ripen,” says the Lord Almighty.
Consider this Quote:
“Financial discipleship is really just an extension of our relationship with God as lord into the management of our physical or material blessings. Financial discipleship opens the gates of opportunities to glorify God in daily life! It is a way to exalt Him in our own hearts, before the world.” Benjamin C. Maxson, Dynamic Steward, vol 4, no 3.
Returning 10% isn’t the ceiling of giving; it’s the floor. It’s not the finish line of giving; it’s just the starting blocks.
