Sometimes we need to look at the heart of a child to remind us of the timeless truths God has tried to impress upon our hearts for years. We look at what we have or don’t have and feel limited. How could God find favor in me, or use me, when all I have doesn’t look good in comparison to what we see others offer. This is not how God weighs our offerings. God looks at the heart, and values the unseen things above all else.
Tithing is an act of worship. It is an expression of the heart, that we trust God with our finances even if the numbers don’t make sense. We give God the first fruits, the best off the top, that we have set aside to give.
It doesn’t matter the ebbs and flows of our financial stance. I know God provides for my needs, as He has proven faithful time and time again, and I will trust Him.
