Who should get more blessings?
The full tithe payer who gives generously, but doesn't feel that crunch/sacrifice on his/her life style?
The person who pays whatever he/she can donate, suffering and worrying over debts and bills?
The first can answer positively to being a full tithe payer, the second maybe not, but feels great sacrifice in what he or she can do.
How would Jesus feel about these two different scenarios? It's easy to sit in judgement of who is and isn't worthy, when you don't have to worry about your next meal or rent payment, even if it meant you gave up a career that earned more. I guess it means that the first has more faith than the second. The second needs to work harder, suffer in silence, and count your many blessings .
This is for encouragement, ideas, and support for people going through a faith transition no matter where you hope to end up. This is also the place to laugh, cry, and love together.
I can really relate to this. When we were younger and the kids little we struggled mightily financially. I could not find a decent job so I ended up in the military that helped slightly but we were still broke all the time. It came down to tithing or food/bills it was a tough choice so I paid part of the tithing and felt soooooo guilty all the time !! If the car broke or some other small catastrophe I was always reminded by my wife that see that's why you should have paid your tithing !!! That didn't help to say the least. I now pay tithing most of the time because we are far better off at age 61 than we were at age 21 not because church leaders say so but it is a voluntary contribution to support the church here on earth at least that's the way I see it.
