God bless you,
This morning I will take time to write about an “touchy” subject. I decide to write about this because I hear often people talking about their pastors and complaining about giving or what the money is used for. People change churches like shoes, because the church the use to attend the pastor will only talk about giving.. It is about our tides and seeds and also the perspective we have about our pastors. Let me tell you something nobody choose for you witch church you have to attend. And I’am sure that every church collects the offering. This is not something the pastors decide to do it is Just that they are living according the bible. You want to be bless but you don’t want to give this doesn’t make sense. You know why i say so. If you choose a bank for saving you choose one with a high rate of percentage so your money will become more (with risk that if their is foreclosure at that bank, you will loose your money) In Jesus you will never loose anything you will get more than you sow, if it is financially, our health or in a other way. I know for sure that each you are blessed without knowing it. Only for the fact that you get to see an other, family, loved ones and so on. Giving is something good, because God gave it all to you to begin with. He asks for only 10% and you get to live on the 90%, He doesn’t say give me 90% and live on 10%. This is ones a month.
Malachi 3:8-10 KJV
8 Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.9 Ye [are] cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, [even] this whole nation.10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that [there shall] not [be room] enough [to receive it].
Now their are Pastors that live from the gospel and others that have their own job aside their ministry of the Lord. About this I will say let them be. we are not going to church to see in which car the pastors arrive or what for dress they have on today or so on. We go to church to learn about God, to give to the Lord and to bless the Lord with our higher praises and to worship Him. While you are looking around with the carnal eyes, in the spiritual your blessing is passing by, but you are to busy to do other things at the time. I’am not judging just preaching the word as it come in facts. It is written in the bible. And also its written that their will be people calling Gods name, but their heart is not truly with Him. they will become cold an distance. Be grateful for your pastors, love them. They battle each day for you, you don’t have to see to believe they are the ones put responsible for the church so God goes to them. Celebrate them and stop talking about them.
1 Chorintians 9:13-14 KJV
13 Do ye not know that they which minister about holy things live [of the things] of the temple? and they which wait at the altar are partakers with the altar? 14 Even so hath the Lord ordained that they which preach the gospel should live of the gospel.
Hope to be clear about this. Don’t think I have everything. I don’t have a car but I have a bike and I’m grateful. When the time is right the car will come. So I don’t complain about the pastors car. I celebrate them. You do the same. Life will be so much easier.
With loving regards,
