Text Malachi 3: 6-12
The natural inclination of our heart is to believe the lie that all I have belongs all to me. Few things reveal the heart like money. How we handle our money reveals what we value. Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21). God wants the hearts of His children to be turned back to him. So he asks for a portion of our money. God doesn’t need your money back… but He does ask for it back.
