Giving back—It is a great challenge as we encounter trials and push through the journey to remember to give back. When we are blessed, we often times forget that as we are blessed, we have to bless others. Each gift looks a little different. The over involved person, may need to give time, the wealthy person, money, the listener, prayer and the talented people their talents. What we really need to give back is our submission. Until we can agree to give up our lives to God—our time, talent and money are secondary. The question is—what is controlling us, whatever it is, we need to give it back to the Lord. As for tithing, God will absolutely bless those that tithe. He longs to bless us. So give him a chance. Malachi 3:12—Trust me , Try me, Prove me says the Lord of Hosts and see if a blessing, unmeasured blessing will not fall back on you!
God Bless You
20 Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and will watch over me on this journey I am taking and will give me food to eat and clothes to wear 21 so that I return safely to my father’s household, then the Lord will be my God 22 and this stone that I have set up as a pillar will be God’s house, and of all that you give me I will give you a tenth. ”
