Fish and Bread

When I was just starting to work after graduating from college, I had a meager salary which I always have to stretch so it would reach until the next payday. Back then, whenever I go to church each Sundays, I only give coins during offertories. Fast forward to 20 years of working in the corporate world and I now have the ability to give full tithes each time I received my husband and I’s salaries. Now, I wrote this blog entry not to brag but to emphasize the importance of us being faithful to giving tithes. After all, it is written in the old testament:

Malachi 3:10-12

10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. 11 I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the LORD Almighty. 12 “Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land,” says the LORD Almighty.

When I started giving him our full tithes almost 5 years ago, no matter how small it is, he gradually blessed us both. We were able to have things we didn’t imagine we’ll be having. Visit places we just dream of and collect experiences and fond memories. We still don’t have the things we hoped for – kids and a career we wished to have. Up to now, we still don’t know if we will be able to have them.

But GOD has protected us both from harm, kept us both safe while we are on Long Distance Relationship. He also maintained our jobs while we are on this pandemic and apart from that, the tithes we kept for him became an instrument for us to help a lot of people – just like the parable of the fish and bread in Matthew 15:32.

How faithful indeed GOD is.
