GOD, is so not like us! HE is faithful and full of loving kindness; HE is patient and works for our good, always. How many times have we tried to convince ourselves by telling GOD, I HAD SOMETHING COME UP! "YOU know LORD, I really wanted to tithe this week but after food, clothing and shelter (all the things I know you want me to have); and of course the 401K plan (YOU must have provided for my future retirement) and setting aside a "little" for my vacation (which YOU know I really need) I HAD SOMETHING COME UP; my car broke down and YOU know how much money it took to fix it! So this week I am short (actually no money left) on my tithe but I will get back on "track" next week. YOU know my heart LORD, I want to tithe but just ran out of money! I am so thankful, GOD is not like us! What if the roles we reversed and HE was like us? Oh, John, I would have given you your 90% today but I had an emergency in Afghanistan and had to give your money to the poor hungry people there; I will bet "back on track" next week, you see, I HAD SOMETHING COME UP! Our FATHER in Heaven, THANK YOU FOR NOT BEING LIKE ME, BUT PLEASE, MAKE ME MORE LIKE YOU!!!!! 2 Peter 3:9, "The LORD is not slow to fulfill HIS promise...but is patient toward you.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
