When we tithe and give offerings, we honor God and He opens the heavens over our lives and gives us favor.
One can work hard with no favor…or work hard with favor. I’ll take the latter. I’ll do what I can and God will do for me what I could never do or know to do for myself. It gives me a supernatural future and it’s my only shot at coming close to tapping my potential.
It’s the only time in the Bible where I can remember God saying, “Prove me or test me”…
Model this. Teach it to your kids/grand kids, so that they won’t be limited only to their gifts/talents but also supersede that via favor added with it. Favor is an edge that the believer can have.
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 there will not be room enough to store it.
