Our Response to Blessing — Malachi 3:6-12
Shaun continues the series in Malachi with a look at how the people were neglecting the tithing practice that had sustained the priests and their instruction. We too often fall into the belief that the resources we have are ours to keep, but that ignores the reality that they are created or obtained by the blessings that God has given us. We should therefore return a portion as an act of worship to perpetuate the teaching of God’s word. When we become more generous, we can also take more joy as we discover the blessings that God had given us but that we hadn’t noticed while focused the things we do for our ourselves.
