I recently got promoted.

I used to be an assistant branch manager at a Fortune 500 company, now I’m promoted to a branch manager. Being a new manager has a few perks including increased pay, greater responsibilities, and a company car.

In this post I wanted to share a few of the lessons learned through a series of rapid fire promotions

I’m a pro-tither.

I advocate it and encourage people to do it. I have seen tremendous blessings as a result of it. One blessing that I’ve seen is the improvement of my marriage.

Before I was a consistent tither my marriage was on its last leg. My wife was pregnant with our 2nd child and was considering leaving. She loved me but with the tight finances, the tense atmosphere, my bad attitude, and my constant complaining it was getting to her...

But I am somebody who has seen their own life change as a result of  giving. Not only that, but I do believe in the mission of the global church–the one called to lead, serve, and share. Regardless of its imperfections and missteps, it has great value in the eyes of One who died for it.

So, if it needs helps with the bills I think its only fair I lend a hand.
So yes, I’m a pro-tither!

My life was a total mess. I couldn’t make ends meet. I had trouble holding a steady job. My wife (God bless her) loved me, but lost almost all respect for me. Our marriage was on its last leg. She was pregnant with our 2nd child and was considering leaving.

So I went to God for advice. I said, “God my life is not going the way I want. I don’t know how to fix it. What do I do?” A second later I heard the answer:..it blew my mind...

I’m a tither. Despite the controversy surrounding it, I’m a huge advocate of it. And, honestly, before I got serious about it my life was a total mess. I couldn’t make ends meet. I had trouble holding a steady job. My wife (God bless her) loved me, but lost almost all respect for me. Our marriage was on its last leg.

This infographic shows the three tithes represented in the Old Covenant. As believers our mandate is to be generous, which is why 10% is a great floor but not a great ceiling....

Tithing  is indeed found in the Old Testament and incorporated in the Old Covenant of Law. Notice though the difference between “covenant” and  “testament.” The Hebrew word “berith” is translated “covenant.” It carries the idea of a one sided promise of grant; or in other words it’s a guarantee which a more favored person gives a less favored one...

There are people who don’t have the money to tithe…and so they tithe with their time. To be honest, from one point it does make sense: if you don’t have the money tithe your time…God understands.

Right?

My answer...

What most people don’t know about John Rockefeller was that he was a deeply religious man devoted to God, the church, and his family. He gave away more than “required” in response to the needs of society and his love for God.
