Faith Through Giving

Discipline has such a negative connotation and is not something that we place into a comparative with Faith. I grew up in a disciplined / para-military type home, it was the “do as I say not as I do” philosophy that permeated my youth. Demonstration of faith was not a priority, we went to the local Methodist Church, but as the youngest of three boys we weren’t taught the fundamentals of the Christian Faith. My Mother gave her time to the church youth group, and when we attended they would put money into the offering, but it wasn’t talked about in our family or even highlighted as a discipline. As I reflect on this basic tenent of faith I am saddened that my parents never really had the discipline of giving that God blesses.

Joy in Tithing

I was in seventh grade when my father told my sister and me that he was going to start “paying” us for working at our family’s clothing store. This promotion had to several functions, but was primarily designed to begin to teach us responsibility with money by having us write our own tuition checks for school. Another part of the conversation that day was that we would be tithing. Up to that point, we had had no allowance or other regular “income” and just put odd change in offering envelopes on Sundays. Tithing was new. So was being “paid,” so beginning both together was a wise way to introduce the practice.
