Get That Monkey Off Your Back
Week Five: The Monkey Of Financial Pressure
Part One: The Biblical Financial Principle of Tithing

Both principles are linked! You have to follow both. (see part two)

Tithing is giving the first 10% of my income to God via my local church. Three things about Tithing:

  1. Tithing is giving back to God what already belongs to him. Leviticus 27:30 – The tithe has God’s initials on it.
  2. Tithing helps us to keep God first. Deuteronomy 14:23
  3. Tithing increases my faith in God

5 things you do with your money: spend it, pay bills, pay taxes, save, give – and in that order. It is a “me first” list, and its wrong!

Matthew 6:25-34 – Obedience is better than sacrifice. Change the list! 1) Give, 2) save, 3) pay taxes, 4) pay bills, 5) spend – we are last!

Malachi 3:10 – Don’t send, bring – tithe, don’t tip! – don’t bring God whatever dregs are left over. Test God! He dares us to test Him in this! 90 day money back guarantee, been teaching that for 12 years and hasn’t had ONE person ask for the refund.
