To those Christians who give a tithe (10%) of their income to church but do not help their parents financially, this is what our Lord Jesus Christ said about you:
“…Thus you nullify (void, cancel, make of no use), the WORD OF GOD for the sake of your tradition.
You HYPOCRITES! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: “ ‘These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are merely human rules.’ ” (Matthew 15:6-9 NIV)
Don’t be a hypocrite! Don’t break the commandment of God for the sake of your tradition. God said ‘honor your father & mother’. If your parents are in need, help them! It’s a command from God! (See Matthew 15:1-9)
