If you give you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more. Whatever measure you use in giving, larger or small, it will be used to measure what is given back to you. (Luke 6:38 NLT)
We are commanded to give ten percent of our earnings as tithes as well as give offerings. It is better to give than to receive. It works. The Word works.
No one who follows the principle of tithing and giving offerings is disappointed, even those that do not go to church or believe in God.
"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it."
Malachi 3:10 (KJV)
