The concept of sharing our blessings is a teaching that we often hear as children. Sadly, we do not practice this very much as we grow older and we don’t often encounter such generosity from other people either. This is mostly due to financial reasons but also due to having a poverty mindset.
In fact, generosity in the form of a “tithe” or a giving fund should be a habit and should be part of our monthly budget. Here are some reasons why we should develop and maintain the practice of tithing.
You are at your lowest point in life. You are in pain but you know deep inside that you cannot stay in that state forever. Life goes on and it will not stop and wait for you until you are ready. You have heard of many success stories from people who overcame their lowest point in life. You believe that you too have what it takes to do the same. You are not just sure on where to begin.
What kind of life do you want to live? Do you want a happy life or a life full of pain and sadness? For sure, no one wants to live a life full of drama but the irony is that most people choose drama. Yes, you read it correctly. The keyword here is choose because happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy or sad.
You have successfully stayed away from negative people in your life. You have blocked, unfriended and unfollowed all of them in your social media account. But how come, you feel there are still more of them out there? Before you start blocking people again, did you ever stop and wonder that maybe you are also a toxic person to them?
You wake up in the morning. You look outside your window and you see dark clouds looming in the sky. By the glimpse of it, you know right away that it is going to be a long gloomy day. On your way to work, someone recklessly cut in front of your car on the road. You got furious and you spent the rest of the day in a bad mood.
Whether we like it or not, challenges are part of our everyday lives. We will encounter challenges no matter how good, smart and careful we are. It does not matter whether you are a child, a student, an employee, a housewife or an entrepreneur; you are not exempted. Everyone has to go through them on a daily basis.
We all know that we need money to travel. Some of us choose not to travel in order not to incur travel expenses. Others set cheap travel plans, while others take their time and save up for their dream destinations.
When we see pictures of wealthy people on glossy magazines, on TV and when we meet them in real life; we also wish in our hearts that we could be as wealthy as them. We want to ride the same car, buy the same clothes and be able to travel or buy things when we want to. However, we can wish all we want but if we don’t work towards becoming wealthy, we won’t ever get there.
