This morning, I reflected on the blessings in my life and how far I've come since dedicating myself to God and becoming a disciple of Jesus Christ. One aspect that has amazed me is how God has stretched my finances since I started tithing 10% of my monthly income to my church.
Previously, I struggled to make ends meet as a single mother raising two children, wondering how I would pay my rent and other bills. However, after consistently giving to my church and finding a supportive community at Legacy Church of ABQ under the leadership of Senior Pastor Steve Smothermon, something incredible happened.
I can't fully comprehend the workings of God, but every month, I find myself with more money than I thought I had. It's nothing short of a miracle. I felt compelled to share this testimony with all of you, urging you to consider tithing at least 10% of your income to the Lord. Not only does it support churches in spreading the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ and aid various ministries, but it also brings blessings into your life. I speak from experience, and I give cheerfully from my heart.
May God our Father grant you grace, wisdom, and peace as you deepen your knowledge of God and Jesus Christ through His Word.
I want to leave you with a passage from 1 Corinthians 9:6-9 (NKJV) about the Cheerful Giver: "But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. As it is written: 'He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.'"
