Deuteronomy 26:12 GW Every third year is the year when you will store
a tenth of that year's crops in your houses. During that year
distribute what you have stored to the Levites, foreigners, orphans,
and widows in your cities, and they may eat all they want.
Many of us know at least a tenth of what we earn goes to the Lord's
work. What I've never seen before is the clarity of where such a tenth
should go. God is a God who cares about those in need. As individuals
and churches, we need to make sure to donate generously to those in
real need. We don't need a new tool box or a new jacket as much as
someone else needs unpoluted water, food and clothes.
Generosity should be one of the marks of a Christ-follower.
