Those ten times

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

YHVH is a good Father to us. He not only gave us instructions on how to live, but also practical examples through the lives of other people who went before us. It started with Adam and Eve in the garden. Through their lives and those who followed after them, we learn what YHVH likes and what is not acceptable to Him. Through narrative, He teaches us.

The Exodus from Egypt and the Israelite’s journey through the wilderness is an especially good example of this.

The third year tithe, a test of faithfulness

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Sabbatical Year, Training in righteousness

Tithing is quite a controversial topic. Many different opinions and interpretations exist on this topic. The third year tithe is even more so. In this article, we will give you some background on tithing in general, but more specifically, on this tithe and we will answer the many questions we have received about it. Many people are becoming aware of this and want to know how they are to understand and do it. We want to share our understanding with you. We are new to this too, it will be the second time we give the third tithe, but we believe it to be very important and a test of our faithfulness to YHVH. We will elaborate more on this later in the article.

Having an attitude of gratitude

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

I believe that one of the reasons YHVH gives us children is to teach us about ourselves :) Consider what happens when we give our children everything they desire at the very moment they want it? They get spoiled. When children are spoiled and told that they can’t have something, they pout and sulk. Some will even storm off or throw a tantrum. It is usually an ugly display of discontentment. This conduct is not unique to children. When things don’t go our way, we sometimes act in the same way towards our heavenly Father. We tend to focus on our perception of how things should be and when it’s not that way, we complain and feel discontented.

The purpose of the article is to identify and change this behavior. It has helped me, maybe it will help you too…

When do you swap love for a strong rebuke?

Rebuking your brother - in love or not

We all know that we need to love our brother. We also know that we need to keep an eye on ourselves and our brother. Yet, it is not always easy to decide what to do when your brother does something you feel is not right. But what to do then? It is difficult to decide when should I ignore it for the sake of love and unity, when should I mention it or when should I be as harsh as cutting all ties. Let us do a study to see what we can learn from the Scriptures on this topic.
