Ron Asseltyne puts in long hours pouring concrete in southern California. But he doesn’t mind, he’s happy to be employed. he always finds time to watch one of his favorite shows, The 700 Club.
“I love it, I trust it,” Ron says. “I love CBN’s perspective.”
However, when Ron first found the program, he didn’t believe in the lesson on tithing. But he eventually changed his mind.
As the years went on I realized, “No, the Lord needs that money! How are they going to fund their projects? They don’t get any money from the government.”
Ron pledged $20 a month. That was a stretch because he’d lost his job and was relying on unemployment and odd jobs to live. But he gave anyway. It wasn’t long before Ron landed not one trucking job, but two!
“I just kept getting work,” he says. “Work, work, work. And I’m noticing everyone else is not working, but I am. I attribute it to the tithing. God said, ‘Test me and see if I won’t open up the windows of heaven.’ It’s the only part in the Bible that says you can test God.”
And Ron loves to see his money at work around the world through Operation Blessing.
“It’s a great thing and they do great things for people. It’s a small amount of money to give every month,” he says.
And Ron has been faithful to pay his pledge and tithe each month—no matter what.
“My tithe is going out before my rent,” Ron says. “You really start wanting to give that money.”
And for those wondering if the principle will work for them—Ron has this to say..
“That’s what God requires. It’s in the Bible. Do it. And you’ll be happier for it; because when you obey his Word you get his blessings.”
