I have to write this because I’ve had such a great last two days (Thursday and Friday) - when I was in the DC area I was actively involved in supporting St Jude Children’s Research Hospital. They had annual radiothons for fundraising. Imagine my surprise when I arrived in San Antonio (the 8th biggest city in the US at that time) and there were no radiothons..horrors. I missed being “involved.
Well, imagine my surprise again the other day when I was in the shower and heard the country radio station that I listen to announce that their radiothon was going to begin in a half hour. I was ecstatic. So, while at work I listened to the entire two days of the radiothon and felt alive again. I was able to give alot and support alot. San Antonio raised over $300, 000 in our very first radiothon AND we had over 1000 partners-in-hope sign up as well. How cool is that.
So, what about the title of the post. Could I consider the money I donated a tithe? No, I can’t. That was seed money. A tithe is given to the source of my spiritual support. Even though I feel terrific after donating to St Jude, the hospital is NOT the source of my spiritual support/supply. So, therefore it is not a tithe.
Seed money is what you give to the universe (in this case via an organization that does so much good for parents and children when a child has been stricken with a catastrophic illness). It is placed out there and will come back to you often in the form of divine surprises. But with that money you’re planting the seed of good and as we know, that good will return multiplied and running over.
You MUST tithe or your spiritual supply will dry up. That’s a fact. In fact you MUST tithe and you MUST express gratitude in order for your prosperity faucet to pour forth!
I’m still ecstatic….
