SCRIPTURE

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

QUOTE

Giving is true having.

~Charles H. Spurgeon

COMMENTARY

Life is a series of test. Just as God put ancient Israel to the test in the wilderness, so He puts us to the test. One of the many test has to do with our stewardship and our faith in His promises. God’s promise is simple: if we will give Him one tenth of our income to support His work in this world, He will open the windows of heaven an flood us with blessings. What does God have behind those windows? What is our greed costing us? How much are we missing simply because we cannot trust God with our resources? The economy is bad but the economy is not the problem. Our problem is greed and unbelief.

Since the remodeling of the youth room I have had people tell me they want the sanctuary renovated; a couple have been on me for three years about upgrading the play ground. I would love to see the parking lot resurfaced and we did not get that second van for the Youth or whoever. The Office building is down to one unit [Thank the LORD Jesus for a mild summer]. One of the big units has been out in the FORTE for three years. All these things and infinitely more are behind those heavenly windows if we could just pass the test.

EXTRA
