Yes, April 15th is fast approaching. If you're getting a refund then you've probably already finished your taxes. If you owe, then you're probably postponing the inevitable till the last day. As they say, there are two guaranteed things in life.....death and taxes. It does seem like the chunk the IRS takes out is too large of a portion, huh? Especially when Congress is so wasteful in their spending of it.
All of what we have is God's, before it is ours. Leviticus 27;30 ''A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord.'' We have temporary custody but it can all be taken from us at anytime. We are to give freely and with the right spirit with what we are blessed with to further the Kingdom. ''Jesus said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.”
Our support of things includes both our verbal affirmation and our financial response. We are blessed when we bless others by paying our blessings forward.
