Giving More Than Ten Percent
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Giving More Than Ten Percent…


You told your pastor you gave your “ten percent.”

But what kind of life have you really spent?


You put money in the offering plate on Sunday.

What kind of person are you…  Come Monday?


Living for Christ is a total way of living.

How much of your time have you been giving?


Do you have a burden for the lost souls of men?

Do you have the power of God living within?


No matter how much of church

 you’re “involved... “

The problem of sin in you will go “unsolved.”


Christ must be your #1 goal and ambition...

He must be your true source of spiritual nutrition.


Jesus must be the focus

 of your love and attention...

He’s done more for you than

 one could ever mention.


He is the answer to a crazy world

 gone “upside down.”

He’ll do more for YOU than

“ the biggest church in town.”


100 percent of your life is what

 Christ wants to receive...

If heaven as your home… 

Is what you wish to achieve.


Christ is here right now…

 No need for an appointment!

Won’t you receive his love and

 precious anointment?


He’ll do more than any church

building could every do!

Won’t you allow him to make

your life BRAND NEW?

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
