40 Day Spiritual Journey to a More Generous Life
Day 7 - Set Up a Plan to Faithfully Give 10% or More of Your Financial Resources to the Lord's Work.
"Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce...The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives" (Deuteronomy 14:22-23)
Far from being an outdated Old Testemanet principle, tithing still serves as a standard to teach Christians to trust God entirely with their lives. When I put God first with my finances I am saying to Him I trust Him enough to provide for all my needs. Tithing is a demonstration of Lordship.
