after speaking with some very close friends yesterday, Malachi 3:10 was brought up. to the best of my knowledge this is the only place in the bible where God commands “test Me in this.” the lesson here is really quite simple: bring what you have to Him and He’ll give you more, more than you’ll know what to do with! … seems unfair, no? this is one scale I don’t mind being off kilter! Bring it on!
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. (Malachi 3:10 NIV)
