Total Surrender to Living for Jesus
“He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.” John 12:25
Two men were discussing the issue of tithing. The first one asked, “How do you figure your tithe? Before taxes or after taxes?” The second answered, “Oh, I figure my tithe before taxes.” “Why do you figure it that way?” he asked. His friend responded, “Because the Lord gets more that way.”
That’s the kind of man who is going to get a blessing from the Lord. Jesus said the Pharisees tithed from the mint plants (see Matthew 23:23). They would have an herb in their hand and count out each leaf one by one to give their exact tithe to the Lord—just enough, yet not too much. How precise they were!
Oh God, give us men and women who say, “Dear God, I’m going for You with all that I am. I’m getting out of the boat with both feet. If You tell me to hit the ground, I’m going to hit it until You tell me to stop.”
