Pay Your Tithes Using Your Cell Phone

So you are sitting at church on Sunday morning and its time for the offering plates to be passed. You reach into your wallet to pull out a $100 bill, because you know that the Lord loves a cheerful giver. But to your dismay – there are no more $100 bills left in your wallet. In fact, there’s not even a single $1 bill to be found.

 

In times past you would have had no choice, but to simply let the offering plate pass you by without contributing. Hopefully, you would then remember to bring some cash or your checkbook to the next service.

 

However, we now live in a technologically-advanced civilization. Even paying tithes and giving offerings is becoming more sophisticated. Many churches will now allow you to automatically deposit your tithes or electronically transfer contributions directly into their bank account.

 

However, your options have now expanded even further. Lynne Gabriel recently created an iPhone app called MyTithe that allows you to pay your tithes or contribute offerings by using your cell phone.

Just think of the convenience. Instead of just letting the offering plate pass you by when you don’t have any cash in your wallet, you can now just whip out your cell phone and make a donation. As technology continues to develop, we may not even need offering plates in a few more years. We can all just take out our cell phones and give cheerfully unto the Lord – electronically.

 

Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7.
