So the Husband and I pay tithing and have always tried to do so, mainly because that is what we're supposed to do. I would always hear of wild tithing miracles, but while I never doubted them per say... well, I guess I never thought it would happen to me. The stories that always gave me pause are those where there is somehow money to pay off everything. Several months ago, we couldn't figure out our budget. Everything was working out nicely enough... except for the numbers. Neither of us are that bad at math, but we couldn't get the numbers to crunch to explain how everything was getting paid. We finally thought "oh well, how weird" and moved on in our lives and sort of forgot about that. The other day at tithing settlement, bishop asks if we had experienced any blessings from paying a full tithe, and Husband and I looked at each other and realized that odd little budget incident was probably in fact one of those crazy tithing blessing tales I was always "yeah, uh huh, okay" about. So, yes, one is always blessed in ways for tithing, but sometimes even the wilder miracles occur.

Where are we going and why are we in this handbasket?

14 years of marriage has meant various employment and financial states. when we are current on tithing, we always have enough. food lasts longer. things run better.

"Therefore, let us beware of false prophets and false teachers, both men and women, who are self-appointed declarers of the doctrines of the Church and who seek to spread their false gospel and attract followers by sponsoring symposia, books, and journals whose contents challenge fundamental doctrines of the Church. Beware of those who speak and publish in opposition to God’s true prophets and who actively proselyte others with reckless disregard for the eternal well-being of those whom they seduce. Like Nehor and Korihor in the Book of Mormon, they rely on sophistry to deceive and entice others to their views. They “set themselves up for a light unto the world, that they may get gain and praise of the world; but they seek not the welfare of Zion” (2 Ne. 26:29). (Beware of False Prophets and Teachers, supra.)

Elder M Russell Ballard
