One of the unconventional concepts in the Bible is generosity. Imagine when the Israelites first learned of God’s requirement to give the first ten percent of their harvest to God.

I can imagine one of these farmers saying, “Let me get this right. I planted seeds, cultivated the ground and worked hard to harvest my crops and now that I’ve finally seen fruit you want me to give the first 10% away?”

God’s directive must have sounded crazy, but generosity worked. When God’s people were generous, God was generous to them.

Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 9:6, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.”

Today has been proclaimed Giving Tuesday. It’s a great day to practice God’s unconventional approach.
