Render Firstfruits to God
Jihad called his pastor to explain. He would not be able to give a tithe for the next two months, because he was purchasing land in the country of Qatar. He assured the pastor that he would more than make it up when the land was sold. His pastor warned him, “Jihad, how can God bless a project when you don’t first honor Him with your resources?”
However, Jihad was confident that this was an exceptional investment opportunity. Therefore, he and his three friends bought the property. Sure enough, in just two weeks the land doubled in value, but instead of selling it right away they decided to keep it a little longer in hopes of making even greater profits.
