On my last post I promised that I would explain the story to the best of my capabilities, this story has many aspects to it and may be seen or interpreted in different ways. For those of you are joining in now joining in please check out the previous post which you can find on the bottom of the page. Okay now back to the topic. There was five characters main character names are Ted, Marry, Sepho, Joseph and Christina the wife. Now
Ted is the boss/business man (which is portraying as Jesus Christ).
Christina is Ted’s wife (which is portraying the Church).
Marry, Sepho and Joseph are the employees (which are regular people).
A quick recap Ted told all his employees that they may use their salary to do whatever they want do in one condition that they send 10% to his wife. Each of the employees earned different salary.
Morals or Principle of the story.
- Tithe is simply giving back to God what is His e.g. like paying tax.
- When you give, give with and open heart
- Be faithful
- Blessing comes to those who give and are faithful
- Your true treasure is where your heart is e.g. money, work or relationship
And may other more
The Church (wife)
The wife being the church is not being taken care of. We are not doing our parts as a whole body to fulfill the needs of the church, we all have our reasons including me, it may be you got you have bills you have to take care off and you don’t have enough to tithe, I now for me is that I say I’m a student do I really have to tithe, The list goes on we tend to get caught up with what is going on with Me. We forget about Christina (wife/church) whom we should be taking care off. This week I have been challenged to change my mind set toward Tithe, it not all about that the pastors gets the money, tithe is not there to help God, but it is there for me. Because I need it. Gods promise is Malachi 3: 10- 11 is so beautiful, it states …
“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this,” says the LORD if Hosts. See if I will not open the floodgates of heaven and pour out for you blessing without measure. “I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your land, and the vine in your field will not fail to produce fruit” says the LORD if Hosts.”
