WORLD BUDGET EMPHASIS:  Annual Sacrifice -   November 10


10 plus 10. Dale Walters, Associate Professor at Southern Adventist University, tells this story:

 

"As a small child, I was taught to tithe. Tithing was never a question in my mind. My parents gave me offerings to give for Sabbath School and I put it in the offering plate.

 

"During my academy and early college years I was impressed that I needed to give offerings, but I wasn't sure how to go about figuring out what I should do. Paying my own academy and college tuition was a heavy burden, but God provided a good job and I earned enough.

 

"One year I found out that I was going to get a small raise.     I thought— 'I'm living just fine on what I'm making now. I know what I'm going to do. I will give 2% of my gross income for offerings. I won't miss it at all.' And I didn't.

 

"From then on, when I got a raise I would add a percent or two to my offerings. By the time I finished college, I was paying 10 percent tithe, 5 percent church budget, 3 percent world budget, and 2 percent conference advance. I finished college debt free and with several thousand dollars in the bank. I have continued this plan my whole life even though at times money seemed tight while we raised our family. God has truly blessed just as He said He would.
