The question remains for each of us: WHICH ECONOMY ARE WE GOING TO OPERATE OUR LIVES BY RIGHT NOW? Will we operate by our global economy or by God’s economy? Could it be that America is going through this tough time because so many of God’s people are not giving to God what God has asked us to give?
Do you realize that Christians last year gave less than 2.5% of their income to any charity at all, including their own church? This is amazing, I mean really amazing, to me. Are we really people that believe the book of God called the Bible? How can we continue in this mode?
How can we expect God to bless America when Christians are “stealing from God” financially? You may say, “Well, that is rather tough language.” Well, it is exactly what God’s indictment was towards those in Malachi’s day: How can you keep on robbing from God?
Christians need to stand up and be biblical Christians! We must understand and practice biblical giving. Honoring God with at least one-tenth of all God gives you weekly is exactly what God wants from us. Anything less than that is just not biblical giving.
We might be really surprised what would happen in America’s economy if believers would start practicing biblical giving. Are you ready to do so? Are you already doing so? Will you do so?
God’s economy is the best way, really, the only way . . . God’s way.
