From Pastor’s Desk:
Malachi 3:10 Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
Tithing is possibly the most misunderstood of all Scriptural truths. It does, admittedly, take an exercise of faith to tithe. Especially when the bills are due and there’s too much month left at the end of your money. Most, if not all, of us have been there, done that.
As all other promises of God are true and certain, so is this one. This one is a little different in that He actually gives us permission to test, or prove, Him. It must be understood that the first time you tithe may not bring results. But the guarantee is, as you establish a pattern of tithing, you will see that God provides your needs with the 90% He allows you to keep. Actually, that’s a pretty good deal, when you realize the 10% is not yours in the first place, but His.
