I think this said it: “The church can be quite a money drain.”
It’s true. I see people leave the church who certainly increase their standard of living.
And that’s their choice.
The thing is, it’s not like they’re able to all the sudden able to feed their family. But, maybe they’re able to go to movies on Sunday or stay out late and drink wine.
And frankly, I’m just not sure that’s what I am missing in my life. I think that tithing just makes me prioritize what’s really important to me.
I don’t see the flip side of tithing. I don’t find it hard to pay and the church is always there if the “needs” aren’t being met. I’m thankful for that.
And let’s face it, naps are free. 🙂
