In the midst of our “Journey of Promise” I have been asked about the emphasis on “tithing to the Lord’s work.” In our preaching series we are reflecting in detail on the life of Abraham. When Abram was blessed by the High Priest Melchizedek, he gave him one tenth of everything he gained from defeating Chedorlaomer and the kings who were with him. "And Abraham gave him one tenth of everything." [Genesis 14:20]
One of the characteristics I have noticed from being a Bay Area resident for a few years now is the business of our schedules and how that affects our family's identity. If your like my family, there are some activities or tasks we do as a family and some activities or tasks we do on our own, but there is always something to do. I think it is a very healthy thing for a family to have both these activities, but how do we - should we - decide which is which?
