Tithing with your company

I cannot tell you who I was on the phone with the other day, but I learned something powerful from a billionaire Christian.  He was telling another millionaire on the call that if due to covenants on loans and/or rulings by investment boards your company cannot tithe outright, then the next best thing is to sponsor "public service" ads for ministries.

I just thought you should know that your company has that option.

Consistent and Perseverant

You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
Hebrews 10:36

This scripture is powerful to all aspects of our lives, but especially so for our businesses.

Persevere implies endurance. To endure in a race is to consistently place one foot in front of the other.

How does that apply to you? Think about what you are supposed to do. Write them out into steps. Do each step as unto Christ. You are planting a seed in the lives of each person around you as they watch you consistently and persistently striving forward for the promise that God has given you.

What is that promise? Deuteronomy 28's blessings are present tense and a good place to start.

Do you think that God has forgotten how to help you? No, He will do what he promised. He is faithful.

Every day is a new day. No matter what you did or didn't do yesterday, TODAY is new and God is right there helping you so that you are not disgraced.
