Hey fellow 'forum siters', I am only voicing this because its anonymous, otherwise only God knows this question in my head. Just wanted to know your thoughts on what you expect in exchange if you do tithe to a particular church. Even if you didn't - what would you expect? I know its not a business, its a church but for me personally, if I am tithing to a church I would expect: 1. Personal Attention (Open doors if I need to chat or be counselled by someone) 2. If I am running a ministry - financial assistance even if its just for petrol 3. If I ever needed help - an open door I think these are things people don't like to talk about - but I feel its such a commitment to tithe, that the receiving church 'better make it worthwhile'. I don't feel I should run tons of ministries at my cost after having done that. Or pay extra money to some attending visitor. Havent we already taken care of the church. oooohhhh vent vent! It did sound a bit mouthy hunh? Its a question that's in my head - that's all.
