Most people have never read the book of Leviticus. It is a book about the law pertaining to the Levites. It contains many symbols. It is a book of laws and vows. It is a book about being holy before the Lord.
In the book, God lays out ethical and moral parameters.
As you continue through the book, God not only speaks about our morals but our money. The tithe is mentioned – giving is mentioned. God makes it abundantly clear that it is about percentage.
What percent do you currently give? Do you live on 98% of what you make?
It is so easy to be consumed with “stuff.” Greed is very subtle. Greed is hard to identify. Well, hard to identify in ourselves but very easy to spot in others. Is it hard for you to give away your money, your “stuff”?
Did you know that if you make $1,800 a year, you are in the top 70% of the world? If you make $25,000 a year, you are in the top 10% of the world, and if you make $47,000 a year, you are wealthier than 99% of all humanity.
The bottom line is…it is all about percentage.
What percentage of God’s money are you giving back? Last years giving statements have been mailed and are in your possession.What was your percentage that you gave?
