“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.” Malachi 3:10 (NIV)
The church is God’s ordained means of distributing gospel food to a world starving for truth. When we contribute to the mission of the gospel through our talents, our time, and our resources, the Provider God which we serve returns back to us through providential provision. The very practice of giving becomes God’s provision for receiving.
God does not need our resources, but we certainly need His. Every good thing we have and are is from God. When we willingly participate in God’s work of providing to others we find that His blessings often become ours.
Let’s pray today to be faithful in returning gratitude in tithes and offerings to the work of God.
