How to Succeed, Give God His Share!
God expects us to give 10% of our earnings in tithes each Sabbath Day. God expects us to love and be kind to each other. God expects us as Christians to bring troubled souls to His kingdom to be delivered and saved. As much as God gives to us, He does not expect much in return. God just wants us to be obedient to His Word and His Commandments.
Sometimes we as Christians fail to do as God commands. We go to church diligently and regularly, but our heart is not in it. We pay our tithes, but only give what we want to give and not the 10% asked by God. We fail to spend quality time with God to build a strong personal relationship with God.
In summary, as the Bible states “We do what is pleasing in the Lord’s sight, but not wholeheartedly.” 2 Chronicles 25:2. Apostle Paul states how to be a cheerful giver and cheerful child of God. “I want each of you to take plenty of time to think it over, and make up your own mind what you will give: that will protect you against sob stories and arm-twisting. God loves it when the giver delights in giving. God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways, so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it, ‘He throws caution to the winds, giving to the need in reckless abandon. His right living and right giving ways never run out, nor wear out.’ The most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing great praise for God.” 2 Cor. 9:6-11 Source: Kingdom Worship Center Daily Devotional December 17, 2015.
