My church has this saying: “When we give our best, the rest is blessed.” It’s usually said in regards to tithing, but it recently had me thinking about how this idea translates into the whole of our lives. It affects our time, talents, skills, resources, attention, passions, devotion, etc. You name it; I think it’s affected.
I often have conversations with co-workers about the life that I live. I am labeled a “holy roller.” It used to bother me, but the more I grow in my faith, the more I embrace it and am proud that I am viewed that way. I am by no means perfect, but God has done such a work in me that I want it reflected in every aspect of my life.
“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.” Malachi 3:10
I’m a tither, and no one can convince me otherwise….
