Your Chance to Test God

"Bring ye all the TITHES into the storehouse...
and PROVE me now, SAITH THE LORD of hosts,
if I will not open you the windows of heaven,
and pour you out a blessing,
to receive it."
-Malachi 3:10

This is my favorite Bible verse. I have difficulty with the idea of faith - the part that you believe in something you can't see. But this verse is simple: Give Tithe and God will bless me. Heck! He even challenges us to put Him to the test.

What is TITHE - It's simply 10% of everything you gain - income, allowance, interest, harvest... etc... If you earn $1000/month that means that $100 is your tithe. According to the Bible this Tithe belongs to God and SHOULD be returned to Him. In fact it's supposed to be Holy and SHOULD NOT be used even during life and death situations.


Well, God himself said that we could test Him in this aspect... so if you decide to take up the challenge, when you receive your paycheck this end of the month, do the following:

1. Set aside 10% (Tithe) of your income - that's AFTER taxes and BEFORE again, BEFORE any bills or expenses.
2. Give the Tithe to your church immediately so that you won't be tempted to spend it. (It's not in God's hands if you still have it somewhere where you can get to it).
3. Wait for 1 month and see if God keeps His promise.

If you believe in God, you have nothing to loose, and a lot to gain.

If you don't believe in God, this is your chance to prove Him wrong.
