Actually, I guess I don't need assurance because I am still going to do it. I just want some opinions on this. I am a Christian man who was raised by my Christian grandmother. I am 35 years old, married with 2 sons ages 3 and 1. I have always believed in tithing and I do it first before everything. This is the situation. My 3 year old son was born 3 1/2 months premature. He weighed only 1 pound and 13 ounces at birth. He has had his share of medical problems, but now has defied the odds and is a healthy happy little boy. We have had close to $400,000 worth of medical bills on him since he was born. The state and our insurance took care of alot of the bills, but we still are about $70,000 dollars in debt. I am not complaining because our son is worth that and every thing else to us. Well lets bring my Dad in now. I have had a strained relationship with him for my entire life, but since his grandsons came into the world, he is becoming closer to me and my family. He is financially well off now, but he says he just can't see helping my wife and I out when we are, as he says, throwing our money away. My wife and I are very financially burdened, but we do pay our tithes which is about $170 a month. My son has a surgery due on his eyes on May 9 and the hospital that is doing it is far away. I don't know how we are going to cover all of the expenses, since we have to be there for 3 days, such as hotel, gas and food. My dad says we would have the money if we would not tithe to the church that month, but that is completely out of the question. I believe it is God first, family second, and then other things. What do you think? Please pray for my dad that he gets saved and please pray that this financial burden will lighten up. Thank you and God bless you all.
