I have the pleasure of mentioning The Least of These Ministries, where two local Christian men work to expand God’s Kingdom in Pakistan and India, via evangelism and good works.
The future expansion of the Kingdom will be accomplished in these difficult but living nations… nations where people have children.
This is as opposed to the apostate nations of the West, where the Christian future lies with the immigrant waves that have a strong faith — sometimes in God, sometimes in a fraud — and reproduce. Those who believe in a lie must be persuaded to embrace the truth, instead: for their sake, and for the sake of their nation and the whole world.
The Kingdom must expand, and I invite you to financially help with the expansion. Perhaps with this ministry, perhaps with Compassion, perhaps with something more local. Of course, I recommend tithing as well, preferably 10% to the church you are a part of.
“Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.” — Malachi 3:8
Don’t rob God.
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. — Malachi 3:10
God actually wants to be proved – tested – in this. So, I recommend that you do so: in a few years, your financial situation should be improved, both by blessings from God, and by learning to budget.
Some good material from North, on tithing:
I recommend that you read these works, absorb them, understand them… and put the principles to work.
North often says that “Americans like their religion, and they like it cheap.” Too true.
But if you want victory, you must pay for it!
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. — Matthew 23:23
Do the major things… but do not leave the minor things undone.
