Dear God, each year as I determine how I can give to you financially, I consider what I receive from giving. I know that supporting the church and the work of godly people around the world can provide great joy. Also, I want to give to you because you truly are my number one priority, and I am so grateful for the blessings you have given me. I know that maintaining a habit of regular tithing will help remind me that you are the source of all my blessings. God, as I commit my tithes to you, I ask that you use my gifts to support your work in my community and around the world to meet the needs of those less fortunate than I am. By my gifts, may I show my commitment to you and honor you for your faithful provision in my life.
Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full-pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. Luke 6:38
Ronald A. Beers
A young man asked me about this one time while I was in Lansing. He said I have nothing to give, no one has ever given anything to me. I said, I’m not trying to be disrespectful, but God, your Father in heaven gave you life from the gate. You have plenty to give, it doesn’t have to be a material object, it could simply be the GoodNews of how Jesus Christ shed his blood on the cross for all of our sins. God may use you to give another true life and you may never know it. Now that is giving, and I encourage anyone who thinks they have nothing to offer to share the GoodNews. You will be blessed! God bless you all!
