A Thought for Today: “Offerings”
 
The Lord God asks His people for a tithe.
This means they should give the Lord God 10% of their income.
 
The word tithe is not in the New Testament in the NIV version.
 
In King James, it appears twice. When it appears, it is not saying Christians should tithe.
 
Therefore, does this mean Believers do not need to give?
 
Please read the following verses.
 
1 Corinthians 16:1-3
1 Now about the collection for God’s people: Do what I told the Galatian churches to do.
2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
3 Then, when I arrive, I will give letters of introduction to the men you approve and send them with your gift to Jerusalem.
 
I consider this the Lord Gods instructions for the believers giving. And of course, His instructions are fair; people should give as they have the means to give.
 
For my wife and me, we still use the tithe in our formula for giving.
 
We figure the 10% is the Lord’s and our actual giving is what we give above that.
 
If you do not give this way, that does not mean you are wrong.
 
Again the instruction for grace age believers.
1 Corinthians 16:2
2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made.
 
 
May we also be cheerful givers. This too is in our giving instructions.
 
2 Corinthians 9:6-7
6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
 
Have fun giving away a portion of what the Lord God has given you.
