Ah, yes the sticky wicket appears. God wants me to do what? WHAT??? GIVE HIM A TENTH OF MY INCOME???? WHAT??? ARE YOU CRAZY????
Well, you either trust God or you don’t. This is the promise in the Bible. You can toss it away if you like, but if you do, you’ve just proved to yourself that you do not believe God. Why he even invites you to test this principle for yourself.
Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. (Malachi 3:10, AMP)-11, NKJV.
I invite you to jump in with both feet. Get out your check book. Write your church a check for 10% of your gross income this week. Don’t quibble. After all, do you want God to bless the gross or the net?
Prayer – Lord we have been slow to take this one on, but today we take you at your word and test you on this promise! Amen
