"Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it."
When we read this passage we see God asking us to trust Him. To trust that event though we are giving up 20% to His work and plan for His children (because the Feast is just a step in that plan), He will NEVER let us go hungry. In fact He will bless us so much, we will be overwhelmed.
And for our family this is exactly what happens. We are blessed in so many ways every single year. With God, you never know how that will play out each time--but it has been abundant.
And so we choose to "TRY Him" and to trust Him. And so we honor Him with money He's blessed us with so that His word will continue to go out among the nations and many more sons and daughters will know His truth!
We have heard from friends and family members who also tithe as we do, about how amazing it is that even though we all willingly are giving up 20% of our annual income to doing God's work, we somehow end up with more than we plan for. And that's how God works. Every single time.
