Did you hear about the son who faced an unexpected expense while away at college? He called home and told his father, “Dad, I need you to send me $100.”
The father exclaimed, “$50! Why in the world do you need $20?”
Some people are downright stingy. Even though God the Father commands tithing (Malachi 3:10) and Jesus the Son commends it (Matthew 23:23), only a small number of Christians give 10% of their earnings back to the Lord. One study puts the number of tithing Christians as low as 6%.
Maybe we need to stop negotiating with God and simply trust him. What do you think?
I am so excited about your recent teaaching on stewardship. i believe it will lead to greater commitmentin all areas – john
