Today, I wanted to let someone else take the stage. A very special man by the name of Oswald Chambers. An author, minister, and teacher…he is more than capable to give a word on Tithehacker. So without further ado Mr. Oswald Chambers:
Have you ever felt like you missed God’s provision? Are you living a life of lack and debt going from paycheck? Do you feel like you AREN’T seeing the Promises of God come to pass in your life?
And there IS an answer to that, but before we get there I want to introduce Travis Peters.
Travis is an entrepreneur (with online and offline businesses) and the founder of Faith Life Money. I decided to interview Travis because he was making some outrageous claims:
But I was intrigued and decided it was time to bring him on for an interview.
If you have anything you want to do you can do it now…go ahead I’ll wait
Finished? Good. Now we can get started. On to the interview…
For all its controversy tithes and offerings account for $50 billion a year in the U.S.
What’s also interesting is that the future of tithes and offering will NOT be checks and cash. The ministries that only use these mediums are vastly more ineffective than their computer savvy counterparts.
LL Cool J on tithing?
That’s right the mega star recently shared the reasons for his success namely his faith in God and tithing:
“I mentioned earlier longevity, versatility and originality. What I didn’t mention was spirituality and believing in God…Every dime I get, no matter what it is, I give 10 percent to the church. I’m a life-long tither. I believe strongly in giving. I believe you got to have that faith. And I’ve seen it work in my life, because as much as people in the world like to take credit and claim to be geniuses, at the end of the day there’s a higher power than you, and you got to answer to that power.”
This is on not the first time he has spoken on the benefits of tithing.
If LL Cool J has such great thoughts on tithing, why are so many people adverse to it?
The longer I live the more I realize that God is concerned with generational blessings. God told Abraham,
“I will bless those who bless you and curse those who treat you with contempt. All the families on earth will be blessed through you.” (Genesis 12:3 NLT)
Look at that: a generational blessing.
Moses told Israel,
“I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live.” (Deuteronomy 30:19 NKJV)
There it is again: a generational blessing!
I know this is not a sales, leadership, or management blog. This site is primarily designed for giving. But as a result of giving and God’s faithfulness I have seen some TREMENDOUS blessings recently.
You may not know but I’m a manager of a retail store.
Yes, I do have a day job.
Now between you and I the job is the main reason I have NOT been able to update the blog as much as I’d like. Most days I leave at 6am and get home 8pm. Couple that with a wife and couple of kids…its gets rather hard to post.
But I’ve also come to the realization that some changes have to be made. Tithehacker needs more attention. But right now, I am an extremely busy manager. In this role I have seen God’s wonderful Hand of favor at work. Namely, being put in charge of an under-performing branch (or office) and seeing it jump to #1 in record time!
I hate to admit it: but my life was a mess. I couldn't make ends meet, I didn't know how to hold a steady job, and my marriage was in shambles. Then I learned something that completely turned my life around... Read More…
