TITHING IMPACTS OUR RELATIONSHIP / JUST LIKE EATING A FRUIT IN THE GARDEN IMPACTED ADAM AND EVE’S RELATIONSHIP.
Tithing is one of those things that God has set aside for Himself. When man touches what is holy, separated to Him, it affects relationship.
Malachi 3:7, 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.
Return to Me, and I will Return to YOU!
What is the separation from?
Vs. 8-10, tithe and offerings
I love my children, and because I love my babies I want them blessed. So one day I buy a pumpkin pie, and invite my son to come and have some pie. When he gets to the house I take out the pie and place it on the table. I take the knife and cut a small tenth out of it, and hand him the rest of the pie. His eyeballs about pop out of his head because the pie was HUGE! We sit down to eat, and he reaches over and takes the small sliver and eats that too. He looked at me with no remorse and hands me a piece of the crust, and it was dry! I had given him 90% of the pie to enjoy, but then he snatches my small 10% and eats that too.
THAT RINGS OUT DISRESPECT, DISHONOR, AND THAT WOULD NOT HAPPEN IN MY HOME, BUT IT HAPPENS IN GOD’S HOUSE ALL THE TIME!
When we touch the holy things of God (only a tenth), it impacts our relationship because we are showing disrespect to the King.
HONOR YOUR FATHER BY NOT SNATCHING HIS PORTION OF THE PIE!
Lev. 27:30, And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land or of the fruit of the tree, is the Lord’s. It is holy to the Lord.
