He will demand a tenth of your flocks, and you will be his slaves.

Series: Redeeming Your Time
We should be good stewards of our time.
Samuel tells Israel that if they have a king they will have to give their tithes to him and be his slaves.
We become slaves to whoever or whatever we give our ‘one tenth to’. The children of Israel rejected God and chose to rather be slaves to a king.
Tithing our time means surrendering that part of our time completely and exclusively for God.
If we want our time to be productive and be a blessing, then we should learn to tithe our time to God.
E.g. giving one hour every day to God or giving 6 minutes every hour, etc.
When we decide to honour God with our money, we will see God’s blessing on our finances. Similarly when we honour God with our time, we will see His blessings on our time.
The world demands a major portion of our time to enslave us; but we should choose to instead be slave to God and be submissive to Him. Let’s take a decision to honour Him with the ‘one tenth’ of our time, we will see His blessings on the remaining 90%.
