8 tithing, things began

8 tithing, things began to change, doors began to open. Before long, he was blessed with an abundance of income. 4 Give Joyfully “God loves a cheerful giver,” declares the apostle (2 Corinthians 9:7). Be certain that your giving is done in the right spirit. Rather than thinking of giving as “What can I spare?” shift to the positive tone, “What can I share?” Many years ago Pastor Norman Vincent Peale, pastor of Marble Collegiate Church in New York City, was giving a speech at a Rotary convention.
