“For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob. Yet from the days of your fathers You have gone away from My ordinances And have not kept them. Return to Me, and I will return to you,” Says the LORD of hosts. “But you said, ‘In what way shall we return?’ “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. (Malachi 3:6-8 NKJV)
The concept of the tithe, bringing a tenth of our increase to the Lord via the local church, has been a topic of debate for a good while. Some say it’s for us today. Others say it’s a remnant of the law. The question is, “What does God say?” My hope is that the tithe is still for us today, because I want the blessing of the tither to be for me today. Let’s see if we can come to a conclusion. Let’s see if we can revive the tithe.
