Avocado has philosophical lessons to impact on us about style of spending money?
If no, then here are lessons of life avocado tends to teach us:
That’s the tithe, you can not consume that. It’s meant for God. Deposit it in the church where you are blessed from. God is interested in that!
‘‘Will a man rob or defraud God? Yet you rob and defraud Me. But you say, In what way do we rob or defraud You? [You have withheld your] tithes and offerings.’
You are cursed with the curse, for you are robbing Me, even this whole nation.’
‘Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it’.
And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts
And all nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.
This is all yours to consume. Use it on your expenses as you budgeted’’ —Malachi 3:8-12
This is all yours to consume. Use it on your expenses as you budgeted wisely.
“Never spend your money before you have earned it.” —Thomas Jefferson
“It’s good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it’s good, too, to check up once in a while and make sure that you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy.” —George Lorimer
Yeah, there’ll always be a next time. You have to prepare for the future – plant another avocado tree. Use part of your money as seed in your church ministry, indigent/poor people, personal savings, prayer requests.
‘‘Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver’’—2 Corinthians 9:7
‘‘A gift opens the way
and ushers the giver into the presence of the great’ ’—Proverbs 18:16
‘‘A generous person will prosper;
whoever refreshes others will be refreshed’’ —Proverbs 11:25
Whenever we receive any income,let’s always remember the avocado! Tithe makes God become engaged and directly concerned about your wealth. The seed will always grow once sown in good soil when the gardener is the Father.
