CCh - Counsels for the Church (1991) Chapter 48—Counsels on Stewardship- Tithing Is Ordained by God

Great objects are accomplished by this system. If one and all would accept it, each would be made a vigilant and faithful treasurer for God, and there would be no want of means with which to carry forward the great work of sounding the last message of warning to the world. The treasury will be full if all adopt this system, and the contributors will not be left the poorer. Through every investment made they will become more wedded to the cause of present truth. They will be “laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.” 1 Timothy 6:19. {CCh 274.5}


As the persevering, systematic workers see that the tendency of their benevolent efforts is to nourish love to God and their fellow men, and that their personal efforts are extending their sphere of usefulness, they will realize that it is a great blessing to be co-workers with Christ. The Christian church, as a general thing, are disowning the claims of God upon them to give alms of the things which they possess to support the warfare against the moral darkness which is flooding the world. Never can the work of God advance as it should until the followers of Christ become active, zealous workers.503 {CCh 274.6}


It is a great blessing to be co-workers with Christ. The work of God cannot advance unless we all become active and zealous workers. Offering facilitates bringing forward the last warning to the world. It is an investment to the cause of present truth. We must, one and all, support the warfare against Satan and the moral darkness that covers this world. We all want to move on to a better world. Offerings will lay the foundation against the time to come, that we may lay hold on eternal life. It is a great blessing to be co-workers with Christ.


Our Father, God Almighty,

We thank You once again for giving us this privilege and honor of being co-workers with You. For entrusting to us Your tithing system, that we can go forth with Your present truth message and support the warfare against Satan. We cannot do anything by our own strength, so we thank You for Your blessing of allowing us to be co-workers with You. May You bless our offerings that they may help carry forward Your last message warning to the world. May these means lay up a good foundation against the time to come and that we may lay hold on eternal life. Forgive us of our sins. We thank You for hearing and answering our prayers. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.
