Just a note concerning tithing. I have listened to the pastor preach about tithing and how you can be blessed for giving. This year between the church and to other small ministries that I give to I came within $20.00 of my after tax income of ten percent.. After church one day I talked to one of the dearest ladies I know and she always gave 10% of her gross income. I have thought about this and deceided that this year 10% of my gross will be my goal. The bible talks about taking the best and first of the fruits of our labor to God as an offering. This has been on my mind and I have come to the conclusion that I need to pay God first and the government second. I don't know or understand how this works but this is what has happened to me this year. When I repaired my truck with money I couldn't really afford I found a letter from GMC dated two years earlier stating that I may have a problem and that they would review my reciept and pay a portion of the bill. They paid all but $30.00. My credit cards are paid off. I have exercised some discipline in my spending but have noticed that with the giving that my standard of living has improved and doesn't include worrying about money. When I need extra it comes from an unexpected source. For example one of my credit cards said I paid $300.00 too much,. my insurence company reimbursed a payment that they initialy refused,It is wierd I am slowly recovering financialy and I seem to find more joy in the simpler things in life.and I am giving more money away. It doesn't make any sense at all to my logical mind. My dad told me that the key to happiness is thankfulness he was right (again). When the unexpected happens I now know the God is telling me that I am important to Him. I just wish he would kick me a little harder to get me going in the right direction. Tithing is a simple truth that I wished I knew and understood earlier in life. The blessing are coming my way and I am striving not to understand but to accept and be grateful.- Bill
