    God commands everyone to give a ‘TITHE” Bring ye all the tithe into the treasure-house, that there may be consumption in my house. That means we have bring 36.4 days of earning to Church. But our Bava Thirueni asks only 1 days pay as offering. I wonder why many of of our members do not sit and count the actual day’s pay and put in the Catholicate Donaton envolope.

    Are we not misusing St Paul’s instruction that ‘Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Cor 9:7
    I think we should obey both verses.
