habits – tithing commitment
I believe that regular giving is a constant exercise in letting go and acknowledging who is really in charge of things. Tithing, giving to missions and to charity remind me that what I have is on loan. The “stuff” I collect really isn’t mine. I believe the more loosely we hold on to the things of this world, to more in tune we are with who God is and what He wants for us. God is defined (in part) by sacrifice. This is shown to us through the death of His Son on the cross. If he can give so much, what can I give in return?
