Bible Text: Malachi 3:2-15 | Carl Elwood
The challenge was set before us to take God at His Word. Bring your tithes and offerings into the church, don't rob Him of what is His. Instead give with a willing heart, "and prove God" because he will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing that you cannot contain.
Pastor Elwood gave us interesting statistics (for the average church): 1/3 of the congregation gives 2/3s of the budget. 1/3 of the congregation gives 1/3 of the budget. The final 1/3 are robbing God by not giving their tithes and offerings, and possibly 2/3 of the church are robbing God, because some people give but not what they should/could.
Give God the opportunity to bless you!
