Getting The Most Out Of Your Income Tax!

 As tax season is upon us the first thing we must do is give God praise for having the ability to file. Thank you Jesus!  For those of you who cannot file you still have a reason to give God praise because your testimony is that you are being kept!  I know many of us have already made plans to what vacation, new car, new plasma, laptop, or _____ that we are going to do with our income tax.  For some us who have file early and have already made such purchases this will be applicable next year.  The sad truth is many Christians don't understand the opportunity they have by giving a tithe off of their income tax.  Tithing off your income tax unlocks God resources to the believer now I am definitely by NO means an advocate prosperity gospel.  However the Bible is clear that is more blessed to give than to receive.  What better way to express your gratitude to the Giver of every good and perfect gift than to take the opportunity to tithe of your income tax.  I am reminded of a time in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) when external blessings (servants, cattle, etc.) were a sign of God blessings King Solomon chose wisdom over things.  The Bible declares as a result God gave him not only Wisdom but blessed him more than any king before and there was not a King that came after him who was blessed as he was blessed.  For many us our income tax is a time to get the material things that we will attribute as a blessing from God but how many will do as I have determined to do.  To give God a tithe off my income tax in addition to my regular tithe not because I am trying to manipulate God  in any way but because I have grown to the point to understand that your faith in action moves God into action.  In others words the more you give the more He gives to you.  You can't beat God's giving no matter how you try.  So if you want to get the most out of your income tax take the opportunity to give to God.
