Malachi 3:10 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.
We are at a crucial time now where the practices of yesterday do not work today. We must try something different. Investing and saving will only get you so far. We are in need of an intervention. That is why I am proposing the giving of the tithe is good for America. The tithe is 10% of your income. According to the scriptures in Malachi 3:8-11 and also in Leviticus, God required his people, Israelites to give a tithe, which was at the time the best of their crop. Today, our crop is money. Why give? One because it was the law that was required but two it showed who had faith in God and thet gave up their personal economy. The tithe basically displays that you are depending on God to meet and exceed your need. I know some may say that the tithe is in the Old Testament but is also in the New Testament as Jesus was scolding the Pharisees in Matthew 23:23. He basically told them that the tithe was still in effect.
I want to briefly explain the two most important points that the tithe does for you. Number one, the tithe opens the doors of heaven. God is waiting for you to give you what you need and the only way that he does it is by the door of his heavens. The final point is that the tithe ensures protection. In Malachi 3:11, he says that I will prevent pests upon coming to your crop. At that time, the crop was whatever they planted but the crop today is your money. God ensures that he will protect your crop from being attacked whether it is your job, career, or business. Most people today need protection and this protection by Almighty God will give you an edge. I know that I can go into a long drawn out explanation of the tithe but I wanted my readers to understand these simple facts of the tithe. To reiterate, the tithe is for your benefit and secondly protection of your personal economy. How many need personal protection for the economy?
