Putting God to the test
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.” - MALACHI 3:10
The Bible teaches that we are not to test God. However, our verse today has God Himself inviting us to do just that… to put Him to the test! And it comes regarding our giving. Many things might keep people from giving faithfully to God.
It might be fear or insecurity in personal finances. It may be a habit, good or bad, that may drain our income. It may just be pure selfishness or greed. We just want it all for us! Let me encourage you to take God up on His offer.
Give cheerfully to His storehouse, the church, and watch the windows of heaven open and pour out a blessing beyond measure. You will discover a marvelous truth:
You can’t out give God!
