I just want to know what is your view about this passage. I am not saying that I am more religious than anybody but as much as possible I give my tithe and offering to the church since I knew and learned about it and it since when I was in High School. If my mother give me 10 pesos, I will keep the 1 piso. I had many testimonies how giving change my life and how it works good to me. My sister, will be having an operation this week and my who is in the US earned $200 that Saturday. In tithing, he needs to give 10% of it for the church and it is $20. He was thinking to send it to me in the Philippines, additional for the allowance that he send me and for my sister as well. Yet, he chooses it to give to the church since it his tithe. After church, he went to the junkyard helping a friend looking for a part for her car. It was already late and he is still in the junkyard and everybody gone home. There was a woman who might seemingly lost and she came by to the junkyard for 3 times. First time, she came and asked help from my husband's friend. The second time she came by and it was my husband that she talk with and she left. Then, she came back again and gave $30. The woman is from the Philippines and the husband told her that the $30 will go to the Philippines. So, for us its a testimony because my husband give his $20 dollar as his tithe yet, thinking that it would be helpful for my sister's need. But he chooses to give it to church and he received $30 back. So, how about you? You had any experiences about giving or what is your view about tithing and giving. I would love to hear from you.
