(Opinion…but see Romans 13:7-8 ; Proverbs 3:27-28;  Proverbs 22:7; Matthew 5: 23-24)

Some folks demand paying tithe,

With not enough left to thrive…

They claim the Lord

Fortunes may restore,

So the Deacon’s Fund keeps them alive.

somewhere it says managed money,

Is way more a witness , Honey…

Pay off debrs we’re told,

In Christ be bold,

With the financial witness of money!

Paying off all debts has a reason,

It allows giving in every season…

One’s constant income

Negates promises wrung

From TV preachers’ reasons.

Limited in what you make—

Poor management will take…

Near every dime

By weekend time,

But poor folks give more for God’s sake!

Yhe thing that really gets me

Is manipulation for TV…

Citing the Law

Commanding us all

To give or lose essentially!

I promise to give any names,

But in homes people play these games…

The spouse with money sense

Thrown against the fence,

Is tired of the underhanded “Godly” chains!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
