"If governments print money all the time then why is there always a shortage of money"? This question has repeatedly come up from friends,colleagues and acquaintances who still don't understand why so much money is mentioned in the news daily, but too little is seen circulating and why we still live in a world full of financial crises.I have thought about this question myself.Yet the more I think of it the more confusion gets into my head.i just can't find a good reason to explain this one anomaly in life.
Why should there be a shortage of anything in life?
Reading from the first chapter of the book of Genesis we find that after God created everything,it was then that he created man.which means before he created man and woman he had already created everything they needed to live an abundant life.He the Lord had replenished the earth with abundance.Abundance of which he gave to man freely to use.But just look at the way things are today and we find that man has just completely gone out of God's design for his/her life.So we see a situation where some are begging for their food while some are simply overeating and throwing leftovers all over the place.Yet there is always a shortage.And never enough to go round.
Such is also the case with money.There is just too much of it everywhere.Yet we always end up with a crisis,inflation and tax rise and so there is always a shortage or not enough to go round, too bad!!This is the way it has been and will always be inspite of God's generosity towards mankind.
This is why tithing is important.Because for once we can show appreciation for the generosity God has show to us and ask him to do more.and He is always punctual in keeping his promises.Because every penny we give in the house of the Lord is always give back to us with a generous interest
payment that far exceeds the interest the banks give.And on top of that payment time is quicker with God.
