Giving…

God has been challenging me to give more in the last couple of weeks than ever before.  Tithing has never been an issue.  My parents taught me to tithe from my first job and it’s been a part of my life ever since.  I have never felt Him leading me to give this amount before.  Maybe, it’s because I’ve been complacent because of my savings account.  I could live off my savings for a while and not feel the crunch.  Maybe, God wants me to give so that it pushes me out of my comfort zone.  Or, it could be that the ministries that He has put on my heart are hurting from the economic downturn.  Whatever the reason,  I praise God for blessing me with enough to give.  He has always been faithful.  If you are not tithing, start giving 10% of your income to the local church now.  God promises to bless you.  Test Him, He is faithful.

By the way, God began working on me for several weeks before Pastor Mike preached on giving.  Check out his excellent post on giving here.
