Charles Spurgeon on Tithing

moneypile

Lined up today toe to toe are two camps of people when it comes to giving. In the one corner are those who legalistically tithe, do so out of fear, and believe everyone must tithe because God demands it. In the other corner are those who say, "We are not under the law of tithing so we don't need to do it." Often these people either don't give to God's house at all, or give very small amounts.Spurgeon, as so often seems to sit right in the middle and challenges both groups. Read the whole … [Read more...]

Leaders: Gentleness, not severity, will win you respect and love

KingDavidsg

King David is an interesting character. His gentleness is evident in 2 Samuel 3. David says quite rightly towards the end, "These men, the sons of Zeruiah, are more severe than I." (v39), His lack of severity is to be broadly welcomed, and yet there is perhaps a weak side to this very strength. His gentility leads to passivity. Just like in the previous chapter, King David seems like almost a passenger in this story. Could it be that he was too gentle?King David's attitude is starkly … [Read more...]

 Don’t assume God’s guidance will open an easy path

KingDavidsg

 Sometimes we can be so familiar with a story that we miss crucial details. As we get to 2 Samuel 2 most of us know what is coming: King Saul is dead, the age of King David has begun. And yet the transition is far from being that straightforward.David inquires of God what he should do. In response to God's reply he moves to Hebron. Judea immediately embraces him as king. David reaches out with magnimity to those who buried Saul. You might think that the reign of King David over the … [Read more...]

Singleness is not about living for yourself

piper2-707691-1

Following on from yesterdays guest post about singleness, I thought I would share John Piper's perspective:Paul was so completely committed to a life of celibacy that he longed for everyone to have it. But the reason he loved the single life is exactly the opposite of why many people today love singleness and will even break up marriages in order to be single again. Today singleness is cherished by many because it brings maximum freedom for self-realization. You pull your own strings. No one … [Read more...]

Do not rejoice when your enemies fall

KingDavidsg

Before Christmas we looked at the tragic end of Israel's first king, Saul. Today, I want us to spend a few moments contemplating the response of David to this news as seen in 2 Samuel 1.Saul had been a disaster for Israel and a deadly enemy towards David. We could easily forgive David if he had rejoiced at Saul's death.But instead David honors the office of King, the anointing of the Lord, and the image of God in every man. He chooses to grieve, and in his lament thinks of the best … [Read more...]
