TOO BIG TO TITHE

 

   A church member made an appointment with his pastor to talk about a problem. “Pastor,” he said, “jobs were hard to come by a number of years ago.  So I asked God’s help in finding me a good job.  I promised that if I found one, I would tithe my income.  I found a job paying $500 per week and I began to give the church $50 each week.  My promotions have been rapid and my salary has increased.  I now make $2,000 per week.  But $200 per week is just too much to give to the church.  Do you have any advice for me?”

    “Yes I do,” said the pastor.  “Let us kneel down and pray that God will reduce your income to the point that you will be able to tithe once more.”

 

      In Malachi 3:10 we read, “’Bring the full 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.”
