Scriptural References

Malachi 3:8-10
“Will a mere mortal rob God? Yet you rob me. “But you ask, ‘How are we robbing you?’ “In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—your whole nation—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.

2 Corinthians 9:7 (NIV)
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

2 Stewardship

  1. The first time that I decided to tithe, was after much teaching by my Pastor. My husband and I had planned to do this on the next pay-day, He was a barber on a military
    base, with haircuts $0.50/head and 70% commission/$100. Needless to say, he had to work very hard to bring home a decent paycheck. If he didn’t work, there was no income. Before the payday came around that we had vowed to start tithing from, my husband became ill and ended up in the hospital. He received $150. that pay period. My tithes were $15. I had all my bills to pay, mortgage, car payment, utilities, etc. There was 4 children, 2 parents, and at the time I had two guest ministers staying at my home for a two week revival. I was so stress on what to do with the money, knowing that I had to feed my guests and family, pay something on the bills, not knowing when my husband would receive another pay check. I put the $15. away for Sunday service. I kept a smile on my face so that my husband and guests didn’t know the turmoil I was going through. It was one thing that was clear to me. I needed to go to the store and purchase some food for the family and my guests. The other thing that I knew was that my husband and I had made a vow to start tithing with this paycheck. The flesh and the spirit started the battle. Common sense told me that I needed some food in the house for everyone to eat. But the Spirit told me of all the promises that God had made through his Holy Word and this was the time of testing of that faith that I was testifying about each night in revival. I went to the bathroom and cried, stressed out with the war that was going on in my body, but I finally decided to “try Jesus” and such a peace came over me. I went back out with a mind to wait on God and just believe what he said. Within the hour, the Daughter Ruler of the Elks organization that I had just joined about a month before came to my house and said, “we had a meeting last night and it was reported to us that your husband was sick, and we took you up a donation.” That was the year of the 60’s and I can truly say that I have been blessed every since. God have truly provided for our needs, My husband and I never had nothing but our paychecks, but we raised 6 children, helped one grandchild, they all finished high school, 5 college graduates, they each had their own cars to drive to school, we lived in 4 homes, 3 we paid for and this last one is being paid for. I went back to school at the age of 50, received a diploma in Practical Nursing, received an Associate Degree in Nursing, work for 25 yrs., went back to college at the age of 65 and did 18 months of Christian Ministry as one of the chartered members of the school program. I have never missed giving God’s part of our earning to the church. Whether it was $0.60 from my $6.00/day job or $5,000. from the sale of our home. I have never felt that it belonged to me. He will do just what he said, and I am a witness.

  2. In April of 2018, I felt my finances were weakening and I had a salaried career, but I still felt like I never had enough money. I was a pretty responsible spender, but I had a bit of debt and expenses that seemed insurmountable. I had been a tither in years past, but stopped because I ran into the belief of “that was an old testament law” and it no longer applied in these day and time. My best friend (a tither) told me, that is an excuse that and you have convinced yourself of it. She was right. I knew better. I grew up in a house with parents who tithed all of my life. I had made an excuse. What if God made an excuse as to why he couldn’t even give me 10% of him to me?
    I began that very day. I remember clearly I was in Phoenix , Arizona on a business trip. I submitted my tithes immediately online, not knowing how I’d be ok with that lump sum of money being gone.
    When I returned home from my trip, I had a card in the mail from a friend who sent me $180 in cash saying “thank you for being in my wedding and I want to pay for each of my bridesmaid’s dresses”. This was unexpected, never discussed before and was a dress I had already paid for in advance. My mouth dropped and I immediately gave all praises to God! Nine months later, I received a $10,000 raise on my job. A year and a half later, I began a new job and my salary increased by $50,000. I cannot be convinced again that God is not present and his ways and laws are old. He is a very present help and a living God. My financial cup is overflowing and I give all thanks to God for blessing me!!
