You Do the Math

You Do the Math

written by on the topic of Finances on February, 2010

Sometimes things just don’t add up in the Christian life, as the poem below illustrates. Who can explain the blessings of God upon those who faithfully tithe? If the statement “ten minus one equals more than ten” does not make sense to you, maybe it is because you have never proven God in the area of tithing. For those who faithfully tithe, it is easily understood. We cannot always explainhow God takes care of those who faithfully tithe, but we can always explain that He does.

TEN MINUS ONE
Ten minus one equals more than ten
When the tenth is given to Him.
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
To withhold it is a sin.
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
Do you give it every week?
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
Tithe if God’s blessing you seek.
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
Into the storehouse it all should go.
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
Give it and watch it grow.
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
Would a man rob God of His due?
Ten minus one equals more than ten;
The commandment to tithe applies to you.
