Continued from part 1
I feel like Frodo, without the ring though, but a journey awaits nevertheless, even if I don’t know it yet. I would have been discouraged if I knew which way or how long it would be so God in His mercy showed me only one step at a time.
I wait happily to savor the meaningful and abundant Christian life that I’ve found. I’ve always known that there was something missing in all the rituals and in religion. I’m glad I was shown the way because there are no biological Christians. Whatever religion you belong to or even if you are born into a family that attends the best church, in the Master’s words, -“You must be born again!” (Born into the kingdom of God as a child of God) There is indeed a transaction which must happen between you and God!

I’ve always been uncomfortable about “tithing”. Not because I was a slacker at giving, it is just that at the back of my head I’ve had doubts of whether tithing still applied in/after the new testament. In addition, I’ve become wary giving to insatiable churches and fly by night standalone preachers and miracle workers and am tired of hearing how financially beneficial and blessed it is. I’m also pretty sure that getting returns on your giving is not the primary purpose of giving.
