We are blessed to bless others. I often hear people complain about the beggar on the street. I have heard people say they don't tithe because the Pastor has a brand new car, among other things. I probably use to be one of those people.
But God! As God was dealing with me years ago, where it relates to tithing, I realized it is not about who/where I pay my tithes; it's about my relationship with Him. Do I trust God? Do I know He is Jehovah Jireh? Is it my money?
I do not remember when it was exactly, but I started tithing, and I haven't looked back, even when, my money is funny...
Then when I thought that was all I had to do, He sprung some new stuff on me. I would be standing in a store, and would clearly know I was to pay for a stranger groceries. I would be driving down the street, and would be led to pick up a walker (led by the Holy Spirit). And when I say He blessed me for my obedience. I am not talking financially blessed, I'm saying He blesses me with peace, joy, and abundantly He gives.
Are you struggling with tithing? Are you finding it difficult to bless others, rather with money/time/talents? Look at it like this, you are blessing God when you bless others. It is not about them or you, but all about Him! Give freely and it will be given to you freely!!
