‘They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous,…
and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.’ (1 Timothy 6 v. 18 – 19)
Have you ever considered tithing (giving a tenth to God)?
Do you know anyone who tithes?
What scares you about the thought?
How would it change your life? Your church?
Strengthen me, O God, for the hard work
of being honest with myself
as I seek to practice Christ-centred generosity.
Just for yourself, actually calculate the proportion of your income you give for God’s purposes.
Take your monthly giving and divide by your monthly income. Does the percentage surprise you? How do you feel about it?
