“But woe to you Pharisees! For you tithe mint and rue and every herb, and neglect justice and the love of God. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others.” —Luke 11:42 John Piper, in a sermon, “These You Ought to Have Done Without Neglecting the Others” What speaks so loudly to me … More Justice issues are money issues.
John Piper, in a sermon Toward the Tithe and Beyond: Some of God’s people are called not to do moneymaking business in the ordinary ways. They are called to be pastors and ministers and missionaries and ministry assistants, and so on. The rest of God’s people (call them “lay ministers”) are to be gainfully employed … More John Piper- Jesus endorses tithing: don’t neglect it.
