There is no amount of money you can tithe or give that can buy God into blessing you. God is in charge of it all. He allows us the blessing to acquire the material things of this world. He also gives us the free gift of His redemptive love. He does not need our money to bless us.
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. God provides for those who give.
Many people believe that if they can’t afford to pay tithes they are cursed or condemned and this is not true. Thinking that way is a form of bondage. God never intended for us to be bound to anything but a free relationship with Him.
You can’t out-give God. God is in charge of all things. His word says “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19). It does not say I will supply all your needs as long as you tithe or as long as you do this or that. That shows us God will provide for us no matter what. He will provide when can afford to tithe and give an offering and even when we can’t. God blesses us according to His divine plan for our lives.
As we prepare for the holiday season remember being thankful or giving thanks to the One who paid it all. Also, the reason for the season is Jesus. We should live a life that glorifies God even when we give. There will always be seasons of abundance and seasons where there is a struggle. Our word teaches us that life is full of varying seasons. We see in God’s word where lands were plentiful and then we see droughts or famine. Stop thinking you have to buy God’s love or blessings that is not true. God’s love and blessings are free.
God sent Jesus to pay it all so we would not have to. You can’t deed your way into heaven. God divinely predestined us into the heavenly royal priesthood. You can’t buy a ticket. You can’t give your way in. You can’t tithe your way in. It is God who divinely calls those to be saved.
There is nothing wrong with tithing and giving an offering. There is nothing wrong with being a giver. The key is being balanced and understanding that you can’t buy God. God calls us and when He does no amount of money or lack thereof changes that.
