"The world's idea of greatness is to rule, but Christian greatness consists in serving. The less there is of you, the more the light shines through."

A Tithe Fish Story
by Ben Maxson

I was on the island of Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands of the South Pacific when I heard the story of a twelve year old boy who had learned what the Bible teaches on tithing. One day he came to the local church elder with a large fish he had caught. He explained to the elder that it was his tithe and asked for instructions as to how to give it to God.

The elder explained that he could sell it at the market or dry it and then sell it. Then he could return the tithe to God through His church. Then the elder remarked that it had been a good day for fishing since he had caught ten fish.

"Oh no," said the boy. "This is the first one. The other nine are still in the ocean. I'm going after them next."

Halfway home from church, my seven-year-old daughter realized she'd left her Sunday-school homework behind. We turned around, and all the way back, her grandfather and I lectured her on assuming responsibility for her things.

We waited in the car, and when she emerged from the church, laughing, her homework was in one hand, and my purse was in the other.
