Your family finances, tithing and how God sees your financial expenditures

How God Sees your Family Finances
by Dianne Becker

If you were standing at the pearly gates of Heaven and God asked you to throw in your checkbook, how would God see your finances?

Does your checkbook reflect it’s God’s money with His Kingdom Priorities? Are your priorities His priorities or do you put other things first, leaving little or nothing for God? Not only does God know your every expenditure, He knows the motives behind your every expenditure, because He knows your heart.

In Matt. 6:33 (NIV)Jesus says that we are to “seek first His kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” A person who puts God first is kingdom minded. In other words, he gives God first place in his life and that will be reflected in all his financial decisions. When you put God first, He will supply all your needs because God says it in His Word.

The Bible says, in Malachi 3:10 (NIV), “to bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” The Bible defines the tithe as the first 10% of your finances.

If you haven’t been tithing, God loves you anyway and does not condemn you; neither does he condemn you if you’re deeply in debt! Even though you might think your finances are hopeless, God doesn’t see it that way. He has great plans for your future and wants to be a part of it. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV).

God will meet you where you are and take you to the next step with your finances, but you must trust Him enough to give Him first place in your life. He is for you and not against you. God wants you to prosper in every way and sees your finances in light of His future plans for you.
