A Message From The Pastor

FEBRUARY THEME: Frozen Assets

To Tithe or Not To Tithe

Recently I overheard an interesting statement: “God has blessed me with a new job – I’m excited because I can tithe now”. Naturally I was happy to learn of the new job, but I was curious about the tithing part. Because tithing has always been a clear and present law of God. To not tithe is to rob God, according to His word in Malachi 3. So the only way for the speaker to be fully exonerated would be if this were their very first job ever, which was doubtful based on their mature age.

I have a real concern for people who refuse to tithe; particularly for those waiting until they ‘earn enough to tithe’. Tithing is not like paying income tax which is indexed according to your earnings. Tithing is fair: 10% for everyone regardless of status, position or personal wealth. If you are reluctant to return to God 10% of a lower income, why would you think it will get easier as you earn more? Is it easier for a millionaire to give back to God 100,000 dollars than it is for someone earning 50,000 dollars to give back 5,000?

May I submit that you will never learn financial discipline, nor will you enjoy personal financial freedom, unless and until you begin tithing? If you believe you are saved, based on faith in God’s infallible Word, and you believe in eternity with God in Heaven, again based on His Word, why would you not trust in that same infallible Word for wealth creation? What’s your alternative?

Over the years I’ve counseled many people struggling with myriad issues. But it occurred to me as I wrote this article, that I have never counseled anyone who tithes, to help them through difficult financial issues. In fact, it’s exactly the opposite. Those who tithe seem to be much more financially stable than those who don’t. If you’re waiting till you’re rich to tithe, forget it. Won’t happen. You can’t defy gravity and you can’t violate any other laws of God and expect Him to bless you. That’s what I want for you – God’s blessing. If you truly trust God, prove it by tithing and give God the opportunity to prove His faithfulness to you.

Blessings,

Rev. Ginette Howse
