Title - One Thing is Needful

Teacher:- Pastor Paul Orimolusi

Main Text:- Luke 18:19-24.

Bible Passages:- Deuteronomy 28:1-14, Malachi 3:8-11, Numbers 22:12, Malachi 3:11, Malachi 3:9, Psalms 20:1-4

We May be keeping all of the commandments of God or doing what is right (such as the Rich man in the book of St Luke 18:19-24), Yet One thing he lacked. 
Inability to distribute his wealth to the poor. 

Tithing is one tenth of our income which is necessary

Why do we have to pay Tithe 

1. God Has said it (When we give our tithe it is an Act of obedience) Deut 28:1-14
2. So There will be meat in God's house Malachi 3:8-11
3. So we would not be declared robbers at the Gate of Heaven
4. So God will rebuke the devourer for your sake Numbers 22:12, Malachi 3:11
 5. So we won't bring down curses on ourselves Malachi 3:9
6. So we can be blessed 
7. Giving our tithe&offering may stand as an umbrella for us to prevent rain of affliction falling on us Ps 20:1-4.

Apart from Biblical scriptures, Remember there may be people in need around you. The widows, the less privileged, the homeless, church maintenance, community outreach e.t.c. All of these are part of church responsibilities. You
