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 you will not have room enough for it” (NIV).
The true test of how much we believe in God and His Word lies in our pocketbooks. Ron and I learned about tithing as new Christians in 1978 and began to practice it immediately.
God has never let us down. We have always had enough and even have experienced God providing for us in unexplained ways.
For example, we received our 1994 Nissan (we called it our God car!) as a gift in 1996. More than 10 years later, with 360,000 plus kilometers on it, it was still going strong!
The idea, of course, is not to give in order to get, but to give in order to obey God and take Him at His word.
Prayer: Lord God, Provider of all things, forgive us for being such slow learners. Give us the courage to believe that both who you are and what you say are true. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
