I made up my mind to start tithing
I brought out my tithes and put it in an envelop
Yesterday 17th August 2008 i took my tithes to church
Gave it to the priest to bless
He blessed it, prayed over it & also prayed for me asking God to bless the giver
I stayed for mass (service) and during offering i dropped it in the offering basket
But before i did, i prayed over my tithes and prophesied great things unto it
I'm just glad that i've started paying my tithes
God has always blessed me
And I know He will bless me in a thousand folds
Have u heard of being embarrased with blessings
Yes I'll be embarrased and bombarded with so many blessings
This is just the beginning
If u don't give tithes just think about it
Don't rob God
Malachi 3:8-9 "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed Me. But ye say. Wherein have we robbed Thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me. even this whole nation."
Malachi 3:10-11 "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. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes. and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field. saith the Lord of hosts."
Acts 20:35 "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you."
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 "He which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. . Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver."
Genesis 28:20-22 "Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, so that I come again to my father's house in peace; then shall the Lord be my God: and this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God's house: and of all that Thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto Thee."
'Of all that Thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto Thee' (Genesis 28:22)
'The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine' (Haggai 2:8)
"’The tithe. . is the Lord's.'
Matthew 23:23 "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cumin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone."
"What I spent, I had. What I saved, I lost. And what I gave, I have."
"That man is no fool who parts with what he cannot keep, to get what he cannot lose." Dear friend, pay tithe for the support of the gospel. It is God's way to enrich your life and further the work of His kingdom. He doesn't need your money. But you need His presence and blessing in this great partnership of life.
