It didn’t work for Japan, so why will it work for us?

Tithing: A talk I gave in church

I was asked to speak in church this sunday with the topic being on Tithing.  Here are my notes from that talk: Sacrifice: Tithing is a fundamental principle to the personal happiness and well-being of Church members both rich and poor.
