With so much emphasis on finances and the economy…the question might be raised, why tithe?
I have just a quick thought on tithing. Recently a friend of mine, Robbin Arnold, posted a blog called Turn on a Dime.
And then another friend shared during prayer, that in her research, the French definition for dime is tithe.
(The tithe is 10% of all of our increase. It’s Holy and it belongs to God.)
As soon as I heard her words, a bomb went off in my Spirit.
TURN ON A TITHE!
The word of God says this of tithing…
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that [there shall] not [be room] enough [to receive it]. Malachi 3:10
When we tithe…it is proof! Proof that God has provided for us! It’s proof that we cannot provide for ourselves. It’s proof that God is faithful, over and over again to open up the windows of heaven and pour into our lives.
When we tithe, we are counting our blessings.
In counting our blessings…there is sure to be a turn around!
