Just randomly thinking today . . .
. . . Stewardship isn’t defined by what you give it’s defined by what you’ve kept. (hmmm, a good quote for those lavish televangelists)
. . . The tithe used to help the poor, but in these days it has created even more.
. . . In Matthew 25:25, the servant who gave 100% back to his master, was still considered a bad steward.
. . . It’s ironic that we trust that the Spirit will bring in some priceless souls, but can’t fathom Him bringing in a few bucks. That we leave up to tithing.
. . . Is The Spirit in charge of offerings, but not in charge of tithes?
. . . As long as one seeks counsel from the Spirit in his giving there will always be a spiritual battle. But as soon as we’ve replaced the Spirit with our own standards, then the Spiritual battle has already been lost.
