God says don’t fornicate, but we still fornicate, many of us regularly – even with other people’s spouses!
He says don’t steal, but many of us are big time fraudsters, 419ers & con artists.
He says don’t covert your neighbour’s possession, but many of us are as envious as satan himself.
He says love your neighbour as yourself, but many wake up each morning planning whom to fight!
We are instructed not to commit murder, but many of us commit murder every second by the words that come out of our mouth (or that we type on Facebook)
YET, WE ARE ALL UP IN ARMS ABOUT THE TINY ISSUE OF TITHES AND OFFERINGS!!!!
My friend, your hands are still unclean anyway so please don’t pay tithes joor. You are still a sinner!!!
God says HE loves a cheerful giver yet many Christians are cheerless, stingy, grumpy, hard hearted, ungrateful and thoughtless.
On Sunday, you will see them in their expensive clothes, haven driven down in the new jeep they will proudly park at a vantage point where everyone can see it – and sing “I love You Lord, with all my heart ” during service…
But when it comes to offering time, the love flies out of the window!
At my late father’s burial 15 years ago, the muslim clerics raised Itoro (offering) for all manner of ridiculous causes including the deluded prayer that I should have a change of heart and become a muslim (🤣🤣🤣🤣) yet the so called sympathisers rose and gave ungrudgingly and over-generously!!!.
In fact, the amount collected that day could have easily purchased a plot of land in Ijebu Ode!!!!!
Yet the muslims did not flinch or think of how ridiculous the request points were. They still gave nevertheless. I remember thinking shouldn’t all this money go to me and my younger ones….or at least to my mum, the deceased’s widow. But the alufas gleefully scooped up every last naira note and there was no doubt whatsoever where the loot was going but no-one cared…
Raise the same in a church and christians will frank face and sit on their wallets and kiss their teeth at Pastor!!!
Why are we Christians so stingy???
I wish Pastors can be bold enough to tell anyone who does not believe in tithing to keep their mouths shut..and their money to themselves – and see God raise up stones in their place.
Lord, I pray, please do not replace me o. Please give me the Grace, empowerment & willingness to do that which You want me to do in Jesus name. AMEN
