In this life, when you get what you want, devote the 10% that is missing to God and be filled.
May you be enriched with grace for the bright future ahead. Are you riding the wave of life, trusting God to make things right? How can you show God thanks and adoration for the all the good things that he has done in your life?
Gratitude and love are indeed the strongest emotions for humans. We can show that gratitude and love through tithing the first 10% of our income to God. The purpose of the tithe is to provide for the widows, orphans, immigrants and the man of God who is over the church. This act of faith shows that you trust God and honor his ways. In turn, God promises to open up blessings that you do not have room enough to receive. Tithing teaches character and is an act of practice that gives back to God's work in the world. It allows people to be be supported and fulfill their purposes.
Our ultimate purpose involves doing goodwill throughout the earth. Tithing equips people with the financial resources to do so, and creates a ripple effect of generosity. Even if you have never tithed before, you can start tithing today. Ask God to hit the reset button in your life, and begin again. Tithing is an act of gratitude, so ride the wave of life and embrace it!
Excerpt from Jae Magazine Fall 2016 Issue, Confession Point on Tithing: II Corinthians 8:5 "and this, not as we had hoped, but first they gave their own selves to the Lord, and to us through the will of God."
