22 is a special number around here. It's meaning is weighty and continuously unfolding. Our founding verse is from Psalm 22:26: The poor will eat and be satisfied. All who seek the LORD will praise him. Their hearts will rejoice with everlasting joy.
The LORD told me that the store opening would be 2/22. And He stayed true to His Word.
I was in church on 2/24 listening to a sermon on tithing, when I began asking Him what His plan was for Truth & Table. He owns 100% of it. Did He want to tithe the profits? What are Your plans, LORD? I asked Him these questions in my heart as I listened to the sermon. Not a breath later, and the pastor mentioned that in the old testament Hebrews tithes were around 22%. I laughed. Of course, LORD.
We will see the faithfulness of God's provision to not just survive, but thrive to bless this community and the nations.
The LORD has lead me to split the 22% tithe in half! 11% will go to the nations, which will be Higher Hope Connect Ministries serving the people of Haiti and 11% will go to local charities which He will choose on a monthly basis!
