General Conference Study Journal: "Tithing - A Commandment Even for the Destitute"

Truly, the Lord did not except the destitute to sacrifice and not to pay tithing. Man will except but God will not. This is what it means that mercy cannot rob sacrifice.

It is hard to teach a principle to someone to pay tithing when the money left in his pocket is good for food for his children. That is so hurting for a father to see his child without food.  But unless we have a GREAT FAITH unto the Lord, we will not be afraid to pay tithing because we know we will be protected and be blessed. I think that is how a faithful person's think. 

I also like the story of the widow of Zarephath shared in this talk. When I carefullly read, studied, pondered and wrote my thoughts about this story, I was touched and I gained more desire to follow her example and follow the Lord in paying tithing.

Sometimes when we are afraid we think too much about what will happen to ourselves. I soooo like our leaders that comforts us with this following phrase:
"..the most important assistance comes from God, not from man."
I'm giving away a free General Conference Study Journal. This has help me a lot. I have this in my journal. Hoping that this would help you in your study also.

General Conference Study Journal: The Sabbath Is a Delight

After so long that I have not study the scripture, I browse my General Conference Study Journal.
I'm into tears that I have remember all the feelings I had when I study those talks and wrote it down in my journal. I've realize how lovely it was. I feel really fascinated of my journal.
And why I stopped? That is my question.
Work has been the major factor why I did not find time to study again. 

And so, I recommit myself to study again. I'm in love with my journal again.
I wanted to be in love with them again and again. 

This talk has injected to me for 3 months and finally I have recovered. 

I had so much realization. Everyday seems like their is something I'm always guilty about. 

After reading, studying, pondering and writing, I desired to keep the Sabbath Holy and also make it a DELIGHT!

The speaker's said and my thoughts is my way to ponder things. When I write what the speaker's have said, sometimes I can't write my thoughts right away. I have to ponder what he have said. It's an everyday pondering until I get what he means, until I feel the spirit whisper's to me what it means.

I'm so much thankful for this talk. I'm excited to share this study page to you.
