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. (Malachi 3:10)
Have you ever put God to the test?
Giving back to Him is the only area of our spiritual journey where God says we can test Him. If we submit to His directive to tithe, He states that He will pour out so much blessing on our lives that we will not have enough room for it all! He wants us to test Him and see if He is telling us the truth of this verse!
For those of you that are mature believers and have been faithful tithers and givers for a number of years, let me give you an additional challenge: test God further by praying for increased opportunities and blessing so that you can give even more.
Too many believers pray for God's hand of blessing so that they can get more stuff. The mature believer prays for more blessing to be able to give even more back to Him and to His Kingdom.
