When the master gave money to his servants, he expected them to invest what he’d given so that he’d have a return on his investment when he returned. Do we think of our tithe as an “investment opportunity” or simply as a chore to be fulfilled?

Paul warns the church at Corinth and us about deceiving ourselves into thinking that everyone goes to Heaven. We must be washed, sanctified and made righteous to enter into the Kingdom of God.
Take a moment to think about this. Should a Christian always tell the truth? What happens if we don’t?
Following God’s way and will, might not always feel the best. Often times it can go against the very things we want most. However, we must always remember God wants the very best for us. It is up to us to follow Him, and allow Him to have control of our lives.
