In the book of Malachi, chapter 3, God promises us that He will reward our obedience for giving back a tenth of our income (a tithe) to use for HIS purposes and then He issues a challenge to His people!
“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 ultimately a FAITH issue. Tithing is a trust issue. If you want to know where your Faith and trust are– honestly answer these two questions:
- Do I trust God to do more with 90 percent of my income then I could do with 100 percent?
- Do I really have Faith that God will come through for me if I give to His church?
Remember, we don’t want something from you—we want something for you. Giving back to God is the most tangible way to express your faith. Learning to trust God with our finances brings us closer to HIM, and builds His Kingdom.
We so strongly believe that God will provide for you–that we’re willing to back it up! Thanks for taking the challenge and helping us build God’s Kingdom in Glen Burnie and around the world!!
