Financial wisdom from a woman of faith

Honest Question: Should I tithe first or after I have paid my bills

It was an honest question…he was a spiritual man who was wrestling with the conviction he has to pay his debts.  He said it well, but that money is not mine if I owe it to some one else.

Right indeed.  And that’s just what I felt he needed to remind him about 100% of his income – it does not belong to him.  It all belongs to God.  After all, it is because of God that we have breath in our lungs each morning.  It is He who gives us the brains to do our work.  It is He who gives us the physical, emotional and mental health to work every day.  It’s because of Him that we have the favor and opportunity to work where we are.

Without God we would have nothing.  And all God is asking for is – 10%.  A small amount.  That is a reminder that it all comes from Him.  It is worship back to Him.  A thankful heart for all He has given us.

Great question my friend!  Glad you asked.
