The story of ungrateful begger
« on: September 19, 2017, 04:53:47 AM »
😶ABOUT TITHE!!!

One day, a very wealthy man was walking on the road. Along the way, he saw a beggar on the sidewalk. The rich man loo ks kindly on the beggar &  asked, How did u become a beggar?

The beggar said, Sir, Ive been applying for a job for a year now but havent found any. U look like a rich man. Sir, if ull give me a job, Ill stop begging.

The rich man smiled & said, I want to help u. But I wont give u a job. Ill do something better. I want u to be my business partner. Lets start a business together.

The beggar blinked hard. He didnt understand what the older man was saying. What do u mean, Sir? I own a rice plantation. U could sell my rice in the market. Ill provide u the sacks of rice. Ill pay the rent for the market stall. Ill even give you food allowance everyday for the next 30 days. All u have to do is sell my rice. And at the end of the month, as Business Partners, well share in the profits.

Tears of joy rolled down his cheeks. Oh Sir, he said, Ure a gift from Heaven. Ure the answer to my prayers. Thank u, thank u, thank u! He then paused & said, Sir, how will we divide the profits? Do I keep 10% &  u get the 90%? Do I keep 5% & u get the 95%? Ill be happy with any arrangement.

The rich man shook his head & chuckled. No, I want u to give me the 10% & u keep the 90%.. For a moment, the beggar couldnt speak. When he tried to speak, it was gibberish. Uh, gee, uh, wow, I mean, huh? He couldnt believe his ears. The deal was too preposterous.

The rich man laughed more loudly. He explained, I dont need the money, my friend. Im already wealthy beyond what u can ever imagine. I want u to give me 10% of ur profits so u grow in faithfulness & gratitude.. The beggar knelt down before his benefactor & said, Yes Sir, I will do as u say. Even now, Im so grateful for what uve done for me!
Each day, the beggar,now dressed a little bit better, operated a store selling rice in the market. He worked very hard. He woke up early in the morning & slept late at night. And sales were brisk, also because the rice was of good quality & after 30 days, the profits were astounding.

At the end of the month, as the ex-beggar was counting the money, & liking very much the feeling of money in his hands, an idea grew in his mind. He told himself, Gee, why should I give 10% to my Business Partner? I didn't see him the whole month! I was the one who was working day & night for this business. I did all this work! I deserve the 100% profits!

A few minutes later, the rich man was knocking on the door to collect his 10% of the profits. The ex-beggar opened the door & said, U dont deserve the 10%. I worked hard for this. I deserve all of it! And he slammed the door.

If you were his Business Partner, how would u feel???

But this is exactly what happens to us. God gave us everything. He gave us life, every single moment, every single breath, every single second. God gave us talents, our ability to talk, to create, to earn money. God gave us our body, our eyes, our ears, our mouth, our hands, our feet, our heart , HE gave us our mind, our imagination, our emotions, our reasoning, our language. God gave us opportunities, some taken some lost. God put us in positions, he gave us all we have to make the wealth. YET we take all of it for granted walking on the earth with pride as if we are self made ? We forget His immeasurable bounties and become ungrateful using the very same blessings He gave us to sin and throw back at Him.

The big question is, which of the favours of our Lord would we deny? When will we turn back to Him with gratitude & obedience? God has granted us all the opportunities to always  remember Him and pay our tithes, offering, alms and first fruit.

Sow a little seed of kindness today by sharing this message. A friend just shared... I felt it's wise sharing with you... God bless you!
