TITHE AND DEVOTIONAL READING OF THE WEEK

TITHE AND DEVOTIONAL READING OF THE WEEK

DON’T JUST MANAGE . . . PRODUCE WEALTH

NOVEMBER 24, 2022

We worship God with our tithe and offerings because He gives us the power to producewealth. The parable of the talents tells the story of three servants who received a shareof their master’s property and their reports about how they used their share to producemore wealth. The three servants had this in common: they faithfully returned to the master whatbelonged to Him. However, the first two did something in addition. They produced wealth withwhat they have received, and they were rewarded for that practice. As God promises the “abilityto produce wealth” to all His servants, it is unfortunate that the third servant fails in this area andwas deprived of His master’s reward.

As believers, we are responsible for what we have received and for what we can produce. EllenG. White writes these words: “In making a profession of faith in Christ we pledge ourselves tobecome all that it is possible for us to be as workers for the Master, and we should cultivate everyfaculty to the highest degree of perfection, that we may do the greatest amount of good of whichwe are capable (Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 330). Growth in all areas of life and participation inthe production of resources is a divine assignment. This responsibility often needs courage,strength, perseverance, and self-discipline. It is a daily uphill journey. However, no one has to bediscouraged or quit. God made a permanent promise: the ability to produce wealth.

The principle of doing “the greatest amount of good” is an invitation to reassess our giving.Today, through our faithful giving, we are a source of blessing. This week as we worship with ourtithe and regular offerings, called Promise, let us reflect and pray on how to become a greaterblessing by growing our resources to their real potential.

PRAYER

Lord, we praise You for entrusting us with Your resources. In partnership with You,we commit to grow our resources and become larger channels of Your blessings to humanity.
