Message Summary

Have you ever wondered if it was OK to tithe into your own God-given calling instead of your church? Well, I have pondered this question. And if you have also, take a listen to today’s podcast message to get an answer to this question.

Malachi 3:8-10 NLT

[8] “Should people cheat God? Yet you have cheated me! “But you ask, ‘What do you mean? When did we ever cheat you?’ “You have cheated me of the tithes and offerings due to me.
[9] You are under a curse, for your whole nation has been cheating me.
[10] Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!

Matthew 23:23 NLT

[23] “What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you are careful to tithe even the tiniest income from your herb gardens, but you ignore the more important aspects of the law-justice, mercy, and faith. You should tithe, yes, but do not neglect the more important things.

1 Corinthians 9:11, 13-14 KJV

[11] If we have sown unto you spiritual things, is it a great thing if we shall reap your carnal things?

[26] “Give these instructions to the Levites: When you receive from the people of Israel the tithes I have assigned as your allotment, give a tenth of the tithes you receive-a tithe of the tithe-to the LORD as a sacred offering.
[28] You must present one-tenth of the tithe received from the Israelites as a sacred offering to the LORD. This is the LORD’s sacred portion, and you must present it to Aaron the priest.
