Here again is the setting aside of the 10th for God even before the Law was given to Mosses
Genesis 28:20–22Complete Jewish Bible
Ya‘akov took this vow: “If God will be with me and will guard me on this road that I am traveling, giving me bread to eat and clothes to wear, so that I return to my father’s house in peace, then ADONAI will be my God; and this stone, which I have set up as a standing-stone, will be God’s house; and of everything you give me, I will faithfully return one-tenth to you.”
- As Christians, we have hope in the future. Hope that is given, not for how well we play the game, but for the love and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Son. We can all rely on this truth as we make life's biggest decisions, or just everyday decisions. It is important to remember what we have learned, evaluate our current situation and mentally resolve the possible implications of our choices. This approach puts our daily life in focus. Our goal is not just something that is obtained at the end of life; It is a strategy that must be played every day. Lord, help me put my will in Your plan, instead of trying to force Your will to my plans. Help me spend more time in reflection and prayer. Please give me an eternal vision. Amen. Jesus is the answer, and it is the only answer. True love is summed up in one word: God! God does not expect the impossible from us. He wants us to expect the impossible from HIM! Even the worst day is a good day with JESUS, BLESSINGS IN THE LORD
- It’s important for us to recognize when we are being convicted by the Holy Ghost. Not for us to ignore our calling. God call us for a reason. We must always be willing to follow our calling. No matter where it leads us in Christ Jesus we must always trust in God no matter what. Because he’s the answer to the past present and future. We (John 4:23) say we must worship God in spirit and truth. The only way that we can overcome darkness is by letting Christ take full control of our life. And give up the cares of this world.
- Also, the tithe appears here: Gen 14:18-20: And Melchizedek king of Salem brought out bread and wine. (He was priest of God Most High.) And he blessed him and said, “Blessed be Abram by God Most High, Possessor of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, who has delivered your enemies into your hand!” And Abram gave him a tenth of everything.
