Thanks for reading.  Let’s begin to read if money is considered part of the tithe?  Many Christians believe
that if you don’t give 10% of your money to the church, you are robbing God.  This comes from the follow-
ing verse in the last book of the Old Testament.

Malachi 3:8  “How do we rob you?”  “In tithes and offerings.  You are under a curse-  the whole nation of
you (Israel)-  because you are robbing me.”

But if you read the entire scripture, the TITHE BEING ROBBED IS NOT MONEY but the produce from the land.

Malachi 3:10  “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be FOOD IN MY HOUSE.  Test me
in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so
much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.  I WILL PREVENT PESTS FROM DEVOURING YOUR
CROPS, AND THE VINES IN YOUR FIELDS WILL NOT CAST THEIR FRUIT,” says the Lord Almighty.

The Lord says to the nation of ISRAEL, if you tithe and do not rob me of THE PRODUCE OF YOUR LAND, I
will pour out my blessing by preventing pests from devouring your crops.

The TITHE in the above scripture refers to THE PROVISION OF FOOD FROM THE LAND, NOT MONEY.

But many Christians believe the tithe in the Old Testament refers to the produce of the land because they
did not have money at this time in history.  We will look closer at this next week.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
