JUST TEN PERCENT
TEXT: MALACHI 3:8-12
MEMORY VERSE: “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).
In the words of Henry B. Eyring, “The tithe prayer helps the Lord build temples, where families can be sealed forever. The tithe prayer helps Him send the gospel to people everywhere. The tithe prayer helps Him relieve hunger and suffering in His own way through His servants.”
Tithing is one of the cardinal teachings of the Bible. Without people’s commitment to tithing, the Church will not be able to achieve much because God’s work must be financed. Those who teach that tithing has been abolished with the ceremonial laws of Moses are misleading people and should not be taken seriously.
Tithing predates the Law of Moses. Abraham paid tithes to Melchizedek, the priest of the Most High God, before the Law of Moses was given. Believers are spiritual children of Abraham and should emulate him as their spiritual father. Tithing is a sure way of investing in the Kingdom of God which will surely attract immeasurable dividends in the world and in Heaven. Give the ten percent of your income to God and He will bless you.
QUOTE: Give the ten percent of your income to God.
CHALLENGE: Tithers are investors who will receive dividends.
PRAYER: Lord, make me a faithful tither.
