Paid Protection?

Paid Protection?

Malachi 3: 8-11

 ”Begin by being honest. Do honest people rob God? But you rob me day after day.

 ”You ask, ‘How have we robbed you God?’

 ”The tithe and the offering—that’s how! And now you’re under a curse —the whole lot of you—because you’re robbing me. Bring your full tithe to the Temple treasury so there will be ample provisions in my Temple. Test me in this and see if I don’t open up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams. For my part, I will defend you against marauders; protect your wheat fields and vegetable gardens against plunderers.” The Message of God-of-the-Angel-Armies.

 

So here’s the deal.  God commands us to tithe and promises us protection and blessings, if we do.  Sounds like a win, win situation to me.  In this covenant with God, not only does He watch over us and provide for our needs but giving protects us from a life of greed and self-centered tendencies.   

Paid Protection?

What’s your thought?

Are you robbing God or paying for protection?
