You may think that tithing
Was only for people born under the law;
But if they were comanded to give one tenth;
Under love, should we not give more?
You may believe that you are generous,
So your conscience allows you to sleep;
God does not judge by the amount that you give;
But by the amount that you keep.
Jesus was not impressed to see,
Large sums into the treasury fall,
But by the two mites the widow gave;
He knew she had given her all.
God is no man's debtor,
He will look after you for sure,
He will not only match the gift you bring,
He will give you much, much more.
Make a commitment to tithe your money,
Your time and your talents, too,
God will fill your cup with blessings,
Pressed down, and overflowing for you.
