1. Acknowledging that God is the one who is providing all the blessings in our lives. All our blessings (e.g. Income) is His provision. Ano ba naman ang masama kung ishare natin sa Kanya ang 10% ng blessings natin? All we have is His', and bakit pati 10% ng pag-aari Nya ay ipagdadamot pa natin di ba?
2. It is also an expression of our trust in Him... trusting Him that He will provide for our future needs.
I suggest, you read Malachi 3:8-12. Andito ang promise ng God kung pano Nya tayo lalong i-bless if we learn to give our tithes and offerings faithfully.
In addition to that,
God wants us to practice tithing in order to keep us away from the LUST OF MATERIAL THINGS
, from the Love of MONEY (which is the root of all evil)
, and from greed
For Mr. Barakoman
, I hope, you will have time to analyze the way you communicate or better na rin ***** if you analyze yourself. Sometimes, your words are too harsh (especially for the RCC). I believe that the fruit of the Spirit is gentleness, kindness, goodness.... I'm not a RCC, I'm a Born Again Christian. pEACE TYO!
