Offering this Week: Local Church
“I believe,” says Andrew, “God blesses those who give to Him with more than we could ever ask or think!”
Debts ate up my salary. It was my fault.
My salary shrank significantly when I changed jobs, but my spending habits remained the same. As a result, I sank deeper into debt. After returning the tithe, I barely had enough money to cover the bills.
I felt horrible. Before changing jobs, I had given 10 percent of my gross income as tithe; 10 percent for offerings; and 10 percent for charity. Now I was only returning tithe, and it would take at least four years for me to become debt-free. Unwilling to wait that long, I thought about Malachi 3, where God challenges us to test Him with our tithes and offerings.
With a deep breath, I resolved to start giving 10 percent of my gross income as a missionary offering, in addition to the tithe, hoping to find some freelance work so I could recuperate the offering money. But even though no extra work showed up, ten months after I started giving the offerings, I was debt-free! It’s hard to explain what happened. This is God’s math, as He never gave extra money; instead, He made my life cheaper.
Shortly after I began to give offerings, I had to buy an airline ticket to fly to visit with my ill father. The round-trip ticket, purchased at the last minute, cost only $110, a considerable discount from the usual $250. After that, a friend volunteered to drive me to the airport, sparing me the cost of an Uber ride. Then some friends invited me to stay in their spare bedroom, rent- free. The list could go on and on.
Heavenly Father! Please, increase our faith, so that me may dare to taste and see that the Lord is good (Ps. 34:8)!
