KP#10 Law of Amplification

This law states that "unless there is character transformation, greater responsibility will show forth the original weakness more clearly". There are many people who claim they will do better when given greater resources. I will tithe when my income is $10K per month. If you can't tithe with present income of say only $1K per month, you will not tithe even when your income exceeds $10K. So here are additional collaries:
  1. people's bad habit will not get better after marriage or after having children; in fact they get worse.
  2. excellence is taking care of the details see BJ#11a Attention to Details - 6 Sigma Life
  3. promotion goes to those who are faithful in the little things now.
This is also the Law of Fidelity or Honesty. Honesty is shown in the little things and not the big things of life.

A related law is the Law of Promotion. Promotion goes those faithful stewards of entrusted wealth. A faithful employees in little things will be promoted and one day will own his own businesses.

1 Tim 5:8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.

2 Cor 8:12-15
12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
13 For I mean not that other men be eased, and ye burdened:
14 But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality:
15 As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

I find some of your remarks downrighjt nasty to the poor, sick and needy. Have you ever read the above texts?

Some people with $1000/month or less cannot even feed their familyk or shelter it properl. Yet they give sacrificially even though not 10%. Jesus wouid not condemn them and neither should you.

I think you miss the point of being faithful in the little first. Tithing is being used an example. My view of tithing is that it is a voluntary act of love to God. Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the laws and hence not to tithe does not result in being cursed. The act of tithing shows that we put God first and trusted God to provide for us. We live within our means however little. Nevertheless, with tithes, the law of harvests kicks in to bring in the blessings. If you believe tithing is good, then starts immediately with the small amount that we have. We don't have to wait till we earn a lot then we tithe.
