Inspiring story all the way around...from the lovely tribute to your grandmother, which lead to the segue of the message in your entry. Well done, well said, and well received. Thank you.

God bless~
I really like this piece. Even in our rich country people are struggling and tithing gets shoved to the bottom when it really is God's money to begin with. Yiou did a wonderful job with the topic and your lovely description of your grandmother made me smile.

Good message throughout this entry and I truly loved the humbleness of your grandmother. It's a fact that the simpler we live, the happier we can be. And as tithers, we need to truly understand that we can never out-give God.
Excellent article. Well written. Good transition from the personal family story to the meat of the article.

One of the reasons this verse ("if you love me keep my commandments") may not be effective is that many Christians really do not know God's commandments. His commands should be the "doctrine" of the church but these are rarely dealt with intensely during the short sermon time.

You have your work cut out for you and only having God on your side can you expect success.

Good story, I loved the example and tribute to your grandma in this and relating to your research. Nicely done.

Great article! Very informative, but with the addition of a personal story it was also entertaining. And right on topic. Great job!
