Blessings in the Challenges

Malachi 3:10

Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house, and thus put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing.

God blesses us in the presence of challenges, not in their absence.  God uses all challenges we face to shape and mold us; some challenges he intentionally puts in front of us.

One of those challenges would be the challenge of tithing.  Tithing is the giving of 10% of our income to honor God.

In Malachi 3 God puts the challenge of the tithe before us.  He prods us to `put him to the test –  if you’ll tithe, just see if I won’t pour on you a blessing larger than you can contain.’
