In the Gospels of the New Testament, there is a captivating story that recounts Jesus’ encounter at the Temple. During this event, Jesus observed a widow who selflessly offered her entire financial means to support His church. It is remarkable to note that Jesus didn’t emphasize giving with such intensity on any other occasion. He was deeply moved by the woman’s obedience to God, as she demonstrated unwavering trust in Him, even at the expense of her own well-being.
Tithing is one of the many obligations that God calls His followers to fulfill in their lives. In the book of Malachi, God delivered a crucial message to the prophet, revealing that when we withhold our offerings for His house, we are essentially robbing Him. This revelation may come as a shock to us!
Furthermore, when we faithfully give our tithes and offerings, God assures us that He will command Satan and his demonic forces to stay away from what we possess. I have yet to encounter a person who regretted giving to God’s house. God remains steadfastly faithful, and He calls upon us all to demonstrate faithfulness in return.
May the Lord abundantly bless you as you contribute to FTC, a ministry that is positively transforming lives around the world.
