Give God A Tenth Of Time

Give God A Tenth of Time

Of all the things daily that we have to do ,

Sometimes tithing time is the hardest part.

At times we get so involved in our lives

Seems like we hardly know where to start.

We neglect to give God His Rightful Place,

We don't think of time being tithed ,too.

If we go to church on Sunday Morning,

Pay our tithe that is all that we have to do.

God gave us six more days twenty four hours.,

So many more minutes .that He's in our heart.

Don't you think if we did not tithe our time

That we neglect to give Him His Rightful Part?

Tithing is our time that we spend in prayer ,

Tithing is helping a friend that we find in need.

Just saying a few kind words along the way,

Comforting a neighbor and planting a seed.

Whatever you plant you know God multiplies,

We know from experience that His Word is true.

So when you let Him have a tenth of your time,

You 're not giving a thing ,it is His Rightful Due!


*******************************************************


We don't really think of giving God a tithe

on time , it seems like we should. God does

so much for us and sometimes through the

week we just think we have done our part ,

and maybe we just lean back and take it easy

and I guess maybe by going to church we

have done enough until next Sunday. There

are so many people that need some help

and I am sure The Lord would be happy if

you tried to help them out.Just think how

good it makes you feel when you can do a

favor for someone and not expect to gain

anything except the satisfaction of knowing

that you have helped your fellowman.I am

sure those good deeds will go down in God's

book of life !

You have such a way with words. A sweet reminder. I was raised in the Christian Church. The first non-denominational denomination. The first I remember being taught about the tithe, the young minister said that the tithe was from the law and no longer binding. There was some rustling in a pew or two. Now, we are free. We give as we have been blessed, and it is well beyond 10%.

Your poem has reminded me of that day. I want to do more.

Thank you for the compliments,I appreciate them . I am still not used to the idea that so many people seem to like the poems that I put on here.God gets me started with a few words and I try my best to finish it so it will get to people's hearts.Sometimes when I start on a poem I am not sure what is going to come out of it, I think the biggest surprise I got was when God woke me up with the words "A tingle and a jingle" I thought God , what can I make out of that ,but I was surprised , it went over pretty good, When He gives me a few words I never know what will come out of it ,I guess God knows.I guess I had better get off of her for now , Thank you ,,clara

So true, tithing is not about money alone, our time is our tithe too. Voted and rated. Looking for 'a tingle and a jingle' - hope to find it soon.

It's working out pretty good. Your description of the process reminds me of, "be a lamp unto my feet" . . . one foot and then the other as the path is illuminated.
