Guard jealously your hours for prayer, Bible study, and self-examination. Set aside a portion of each day for a study of the Scriptures and communion with God. Thus you will obtain spiritual strength, and will grow in favor with God. Gospel Workers, p. 100

 

New Adventist Struggles to pay Tithe Until...

By John G. DePalma printed in the book Faithful Stewards.

When I was baptized and joined the Adventist Church, I was working as finance director of the city of Portland, Maine.

Baptism, though a freeing experience, brought a host of financial challenges. With a new home to pay for and four children to educate in Adventist schools, I found it difficult to make ends meet. To make matters worse, my wife, a teacher, was not employed at the time. We agreed for her to stay at home with our children. As a result, I became the sole breadwinner of our family.

I realized the devil was not happy with me and was doing all he could to discourage me. And he almost succeeded. I struggled briefly with reducing my tithe and offerings to meet my expenses. But then I remembered the promise that if I was faithful, God would take care of my needs. I claimed that promise even though I had no clear picture of the way out of my difficulties. But God had a plan already in place.  click to continue reading
