Managing My Giving - Tithe (3 of 7)
Series: Biblical Money Management
INTRODUCTION: Biblical Money Management series is designed to help every person set their financial house in order. In building a house, the builder must be wise, know the blueprints and follow them, and use the right material. The wise builder knows that storms will come, floods will arise and the winds of adversity will blow. The house must be fortified against the day of testing. As we build our financial house, there are definite biblical ingredients. We have already listed six ingredients and today we examine the third of the six. We have learned money management is important. It is not our money we are managing but God's. God expects us to manage wisely. There are consequences for mismanagement and rewards for wise management. We may have financial problems because of our undisciplined lifestyle, sinful habits, failure to follow biblical principles, lack of training or knowledge of money management, refusal to give liberally and consistently, especially the giving of our tithe. Great things can be accomplished through your life when it is in alignment with God's word. Believe for great things and set your financial house in order.
