"Prove Me"       

Malachi 3:10


     Worshipful giving involves faith. It is giving from the firstfruits of all our increase. If we give what we have left over after paying our bills, entertaining our families, and laying aside for retirement, we have given nothing. That kind of giving requires no faith. That kind of giving is an abomination to God. He will not have our leavings! If we would honor God in our giving, we must prove God with our giving. Prove his faithfulness. Prove his promises. Prove his Word. Prove his goodness by giving to him what you need, thus trusting him to supply your need. God challenges us so to prove him (II Chron. 31:5-10; Mal. 3:10; Luke 6:38). It is written, "Honor the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine" (Prov. 3:9-10).
