Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test! (Malachi 3:10 NLT)
The people of Malachi’s day ignored God’s command to give a tithe of their income to his Temple. They may have feared losing what they had worked so hard to get, but in this they misjudged God. “Give, and you will receive,” he says (Luke 6:38). When we give, we must remember that the blessings God promises are not always material and may not be experienced completely here on earth, but we will certainly receive them in our future life with him.
The “storehouse” was a place in the Temple for storing grain and other food given as tithes. The priests lived off these gifts. We also need to give from the plenty that God has given us in order to support those who serve God by ministering to the spiritual needs of others. ( Tyndal Study Bible )
Haven’t I heard this all before “all the Church wants is your money.” That is so far removed from the truth.
I am in the Sales, the day I started tithing in a disciplined way, that’s the day the flood gates opened in my business. I sell many cars a month.All by the grace of God, I get that result. It works I promise you. God promises to open the heavens for us. Just tithe.
Your reward won’t only be financial. The peace that overcomes you is incredible.
If you eat the last of your seed or spend it, how are you going to plant a seed for later? That why it’s important to tithe and sow. The principle in the world is seed time and harvest. If we don’t plant, we won’t eat. We have to maintain and cultivate our resources. The same applies in our business life if you don’t do the hard and necessary things your business will die. Like cold calling.
Now some people say I haven’t got enough money to tithe. Then tithe your time in serving people. You have heard this, “you reap what you sow.” Apart from money it applies to all things, even the way you speak. Wow, I struggle with that. So concentrate on all the good things and deeds.
You will receive the Blessing of Heaven, just like God promises.
“Lord I pray that You will give me discipline in all things, not only tithing. In Jesus name. Amen”
