Instead, I’ve started asking, “How much should I keep?”
And I’m no different from you. I’m an average guy. I’m not a millionaire. I’m not expecting a windfall of cash from a rich relative any time in the near future.
I just recognize that my God is sufficient to meet and exceed all my needs.
I believe God when He says:
When the Holy Spirit prompts me, I respond. It’s simple. I can’t say it’s always easy. But I can promise you that it’s taking me to spiritual heights I’ve never experienced before. The character of God is being revealed to me in a whole new way.
Is it possible that you’re limiting God with your giving?
Maybe you’re obedient with the first 10 percent, but completely unwilling when the Holy Spirit prompts you further.
Instead of being comfortable, instead of asking that question, “How much should you tithe?” maybe it’s time for you to give in a way that’s going to require FAITH again.
It probably won’t be easy. But it will be worth it.
God doesn’t just want your first 10 percent. He wants your whole heart.
What are some ways God has used you as you’ve taken “faith steps” in your personal generosity?
