Biblical Background of Tithing:
- Both the old and the new testament give us the terms of the giving back to God with our tithes and offerings - we are to bring God our first and best of all that is produced. In the case of Prepare Love Praise TM Ministries NFP our "crop" is our messaging on Christian love and praise. In obedience to The Lord we are following the models described for this purpose including:
The Alexander Kerr story of God's faithfulness when he tithed on his business.
- Alexander Kerr experienced God's provision and protection through fire, earthquake and more of his Kerr glass manufacturing company from which he tithed.
Mr. Kerr became a Christian and learned of God’s fulfillment of blessing to Jacob for tithing then applied the principle to his personal life and that of the new business he had started ─ Kerr Glass Manufacturing Company. When earthquake and fire consumed most of the buildings and businesses around the region many thought he was surely ruined financially as his inventory was glass inside a wooden, oil soaked building. Mr. Kerr learned of the earthquake while away and was told his business was in the heart of the fire.
