Tithing

Did you know that everything comes from God? And that in every thing you received, you have to bring the glory to Him. That you have to give everything also what is due to Him?

The passed few days were tough days for me. I really had difficulties in solving my finances. Though I knew and people knew I am saving a lot, everything went really wrong because for no reason I went out of budget. I really can’t figure out why?

Suddenly, out of a piece of thought, God reminded me of the things I should have done. Maybe my experience of financial crisis for the first time is a reminder of my disobedience. As a Christian, I know I have given God all what is due to Him but instead, I cheated. Not in a way that I have planned to do it to test Him or something but it is because I thought it will help me financially if I will not obey Him this time. And I realized it’s not an excuse.

Giving my tithes and offering is the first and the foremost part I always cut from my income. That is 10% of everything I received. I thought God will understand that I can not give him the 10% because I need it. What I forgot is that, He’ll be there if I am in crisis. He will be there to provide all my needs. That I should not worried about it since He will give it. But instead, I followed my earthly possessions. I cheated. I did not give Him what He deserves.

And here I am right now. Asking forgiveness for what I have done and for what I should have done. If you think I am impractical about this, I tell you, I am telling the truth. It’s really amazing how God provides my needs every time I returned to Him everything He deserves. Tithing is only one of the many commands God has given us but yet I did not continually obey it.

If only I can bring back the time, I would have done what is suppose to be done. I should have given what He commanded me to give him. 10% is just a little portion of the things He had done for me. What is 10% of my income compared to all the beautiful things I had.

I am so sorry for myself for being so selfish. But still I thank God because I surpass my hard days. I thank Him for the reminder. If I did not experience the crisis, I wouldn’t have realized my faults.

Friends, I am telling you this. You might take this for granted or even laugh at it. But I tell you, God deserves everything from us. He gave His life for our sins. Even though how hard we are to please, He still longs for us. Tithing is just a little portion of everything we had. It could only cost some people a pair of jeans or maybe a sandal? A blouse and skirt? Cellphone load? Hair treatment? Body pleasures? Or even watching movie twice a week?

I have learned from my mistakes. I hope you also have learned from it. Don’t Laugh. I am serious because God is serious and He is watching us.

God Bless.

    guilty ako minsan sa tithing

    ako pa naman palagi nagsheshare during T&O sa church during friday.

    sometimes compromisado ung Tithes ko eh naiinis nga ako. tithe is payment, you're right. dedikado din ako na lahat ng matanggap ko 10% is for God exclusive....pero lam mo, grabe ang faithful pa rin ni God. 0 balance ako kanina, until nagtext lang bigla nanay ko na nagpadala na siya..waha, di ako nakapglunch at nakapagbreakfast dahil kulelat ako...hehe humingi ako pero sabi ko wag na lang pero bigla na lang nagbigay kanina =D

    GRACE as it is. i thank God for it . HAYyyy...astig Him always =D
    sabi talga ng leeader ko dapat magtithe ako palagi kasi Philippians 4:19 lang yan =D

THE HEART SPEAKS

from ~~~~~~~~

DEAR JESUS,
You told Your close followers
who were taught how to seek the Father's heart
that whatever they asked for in prayer,
that they were to believe they received it
and it would be theirs. (Mark 11:24)

O, Father, help me to know Your heart intimately
so that I'll know how to pray,
what to pray,
and believe in advance
that I will receive it!
