I filled out the giving envelope and put a dollar in it. It is an offering, not a tithe. We pay our tithes (or 10%) when we receive a check, but that isn’t every week. Deuteronomy 16:16 tells us not to appear before the Lord empty-handed. Each dollar I give over and above our tithe is an offering. God is in control of the amount of the harvest from my seeds.
Deuteronomy 28:8, “The Lord will guarantee a blessing on everything you do and will fill your storehouses with grain. The Lord your God will bless you in the land he is giving you.” New Living Translation
If my storehouse is not overflowing, I need to plant more seeds. Some seeds are even smaller: a quarter, a dime, a nickel, or a penny. But they are all seeds. Storehouses were where they saved the grain. God blesses my savings. To receive his blessing, I have to plant and I have to save.
Dear Father God,
You are the Lord of the harvest. Thank You for the blessings on our storehouse. Thank You for providing seeds. Thank You for the freedom to attend church and present my offering. May I ever be grateful.
In Jesus Name,
