    Gloria you can only fulfill this covenant obligation Tithe by Divine Grace. I once had such challenge and I truly desired to pay my tithe so I can receive more blessings from God, indeed God empowered me. When my father died devil spoke to me, now that your father is late,will you pay your tithe? If you pay your tithe how will you get more money for my father's funeral? I shun the devils voice and paid all my tithe, even the cash gift that were given to me, I paid tithe of all. God surprised me and we had more than enough after the funeral. God will engrace you to become a faithful tither. Remember that 10 cannot go a long way in meeting your needs but God can supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus Philippians 4:19
  • Lilian
    Jesus never condemned and judge us how can we condemned and judge someone. Repentance is not completed without forgiving someone who have done wrong to us. It is very important to forgive the person before asking forgiveness. We must love our enemy and pray for them for we shall see the Glory of God thank you Lord for filling me with your spirit i am able to forgive and love
  • Isaac albert
    I am specially blessed by verse 38
