March 30 Day Tithing Challenge; pt. 2
"The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully." 2 Corinthians 9:6
Compare your hunger for God with your hunger for other things. Wilbur Reese wrote a book titled, $3 - Worth of God. He stated in the book, "I would like to buy $3 - worth of God, please. Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I don't want enough of Him to make me love [other people] or pick beets with a migrant worker. I want ecstasy, not transformation. I want the warmth of the womb, not a new birth." Similarly, far too many of us only want a tiny bit of God which is clearly reflected in the amount (or lack of) we give to Him. May we take an exciting step forward by giving to God 10% of our income.
March is our month for the 30-Day Tithe challenge. If you are not currently giving a tithe (10%) to the church, use this month to test God.
- Saving Lord, move me beyond giving You my leftovers. Move me beyond giving You my peanuts. Remind me, always, that if I sow bountifully, You will be abundantly faithful.
