15 Days on Giving

October 29 – 1 Kings 18:20-24

In this passage, it is important to remember that Elijah is speaking to fellow Israelites (Northern Kingdom), God’s chosen people! Elijah is forced to stand alone and speak for God while the people waver back and forth, trying to serve both God and Baal. In Matthew 6:24, Jesus addressed the issue of serving two masters but related it to the love of money: “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.” Your tithing habits will reflect the god you serve.
