Giving at Living Word

“Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house.  And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.”   Malachi 3:10

All blessings come from the Lord.  Giving back to His church allows us to minister to His people, grow His Kingdom and become more like Him.

A tithe – which means “tenth” – is the first 10% of income before taxes or anything else comes out.  When we give our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest.   Tithing is a huge step of obedience, but you’re not in this alone!  Take time to be in prayer with the Lord.
