    Matthew 13:23

    But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

    Keeping to your question about tithing: Jesus told us to give cheerfully, not grudgingly.

    Tithing establishes TRUST between you and God. You trust Him, and HE takes care of your needs. He is faithful that Promised.

    As your faith grows beyond 10 percent and you give above that; the scripture above shows that you receive greater reward for being faithful.

    Offerings are above the tithe. These are you blessing God back for the blessings you have received and you desire now, to bless Gods people. It doesn't have to be to your Church. I give to ministries that go to all the world; feed and help people who are going through disasters...and need everything. It makes me so happy to read the praise reports that come back to me.

    Offerings build churches, buy Bibles, help the oppressed in other countries etc.

    What is on your heart that you wish you could help in some way?

    Then discuss this with your Heavenly Father, ABBA. And see if you get the green light in Your spirit.

    This is your bag of seed that blesses the whole world. Happy you will be!

    We can't outgive God. He desires to bless His kids. But if we draw back and think greedy; the only person who suffers is us. We will not experience that blessing that God wants to pour out on us.

    DONT think small. Think Big like your Daddy, ABBA.

    If you see a neighbor who has the same old, ragged 50yr old sweater on; present them with a brand new sweater, in Jesus Name.

    See what happens in the heart: yours and theirs. Miracles do happen.
