Give to the poor, and not to the church alone. Give to the people who are in need... If your church is organizing outreach to the poor and needy, then you can entrust your resources to them, otherwise, give it to the poor personally. feed the hungry.

I see there is no limit to the understanding God 's word. Bring the tithe into the my storehouse. So what does this mean please?

Tithe, is God 's command with promise and God is not mocked whatever a man soweth so he shall reap. Practically speaking I have experienced abundance through tithing, I have experienced good health without visiting hospitals for years via tithing, I have experienced peace of mind, success and answered prayers by obeying the Lord through tithing. I have also experienced the opposite by not obeying this principle, and this is because of fear of ability to meet up with other concerns that the Lord says we should cast unto Him for He cares for us all. In a nutshell, I have never seen a man that trade with the Lord and loose, God doesn 't owe us His desire is to meet all our needs according to His riches in glory, remember we are not talking of earthly reward alone, but heavenly treasures, domain where canker-worms, devourer and caterpillars, can 't reach. So I employ people to obey the Lord in everything, because He is the provider of what we possess and moreover we can 't hide anything from Him. Finally also bear in mind that the scripture also says faith without work is dead. The act of paying tithe is a progeny between faith and work -so pay the tithe.

I really love his take on Tithes
Junias's comment on 2015-04-01 09:37:26:
why did GOD not just say " Give 10 of your money to the preachers? " why did GOD not say anything about money when talking about tithing? Please beloved of GOD reread your bibles and realize that tithing has to do with fruits of the land and herds of animals because they are GOD 's personal property... Today preachers are just self enriching themselves.
Yosua's comment on 2014-12-19 12:37:13:
So why it doesn 't work? I was never as much poor and rejected than after I tried to tithe. If that verse worked, that will be known, and there will be no more poor people on the earth, but Jesus Himself said "For ye have the poor with you always, and whensoever ye will ye may do them good but me ye have not always. " Mark 14 7 So it seems that there are no solutions to the poverty. Malachi 3 10 is only false hope to poor peoples, because the church doesn 't do what he has to do "Neither was there any among them that lacked for as many as were possessors of lands or houses sold them, and brought the prices of the things that were sold, and laid them down at the apostles ' feet and distribution was made unto every man according as he had need. " Acts 4 34 35 So the thief is not the person who doesn 't tithe, but the church who doesn 't distribute...

What is the 10 per cent, I believe it can Teaching,Taking care of the poor, Health care, any thing you have that help god people. Not just money which I think EQUAL works under the law.

Abraham and Jacob gave tithes for sure to God! There was no church building. I believe it 's important to give to the church but we ate not under any law and God 's children should know whether they gave it to a single mother or whatever good means from your heart He will it. By Jesus Christ and the work of the cross were good! Even in Malachi it was the priest eh stole from God! Please read in context and stop binding up God 's children the work is finished for by grace we have... not of works!!! Eph. 2 8,9 Give to God don 't be under the spirit of condemnation. Please someone show us through His word one place in the NT where tithing specifically to the church is written? I can 't find it. Please let 's love and continue to give but may the church get there foot off the necks of God 's people with this lie!

The word of God is forever true. Malachai 3 10 is a command with a promise. Obey it and receive the attached promise. Disobey it and get the reverse

Giving tithes is a sigh of obediance to god
Jody's comment on 2014-05-29 00:27:58:
I remember when I was a little girl we would store all our caned veggies in the cellar which could mean store house. So all through the winter we would have enough food in our house. well as a church we could do the same thing to feed the people but we rely on the world to do this now as a nation we are cursed with a curse cause so many people are starving because we don 't do the things we used to do. Malachi 3 9 Ye are cursed with a curse for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation. Go back to verse 8 and it asks us wherein have we robbed thee? That is not talking just about money. Go down to Malachi 15 it talks about those have worked wickedness even they who do that can be delivered if you come back to him and do the thing that you did when you were when you served the Lord God in heaven he is the only one that we should serve. when we give all of ourselves and tithes and offerings to the Lord God only then all his blessing will be poured out and our minds can not even comprehend how much that would be cause we have lived to our worldly ways for so long! If we do just support our churches with 10 money dose that really fix things to where he will pore out his blessings on us? I do not think it dose.

MockingBird's comment on 2014-05-19 04:48:48:
Tithe is what I owe God is not asking me to give Him much. It is over the tithe that you receive Blessings. Yes , I am Blessed when I give the tenth. Also I can give 10 of my time talent personal posessions and or whatever I have . The church is the body of Jesus Christ the tithe belongs to the church God has called me to be in. It supports the up keep of the church and gives the pastor his due. It pays the utility bills and materials for teaching and preaching . When you give willingly and from a pure and obedient and loving heart.

This verse is so wonderful. The reward comes at speed of lightening. Any threatening situation around you can be handled with this. God remains God and he makes final decision.
Elisheba's comment on 2014-02-15 09:01:25:
The tithe was for the levites They owned no property They served monotheistic believers The Almighty was their inheritance Do you know anyone like that If yes given them your money
Lynne's comment on 2014-01-09 07:09:05:
This tithes for storehouse means food for church or people.this tithes is what they used to make tracks of doctrines,and this doctrines was the food to people made from your tithes.So we don't have to stop giving tithes.
Brianna's comment on 2013-12-15 09:49:40:
I was just researching this scripture today. Tithing doesn't only have to be about money. Can we give a tenth of our energy, resources, life, time, or whatever to God. How about our youth! While you still have energy and strength, give your youth to Jehovah! Perhaps serve in another country, and help their. He surely will bring a blessing until there is no more want.
Mayo's comment on 2013-11-16 14:11:33:
Pls is it ok to spread ones tithe to 2 or more Churches?
Janis Chan's comment on 2013-11-03 22:46:16:
Abraham, Jacob gave 10%, that was before the law was given. God is trustworthy. 29 yrs ago, I, born again, a miser, homemaker, no high education, struggled b4 started giving to God. Now I own a factory, a maisonette, a condomidium, 2 cars, 2 lorries, 6 staffs & plenty of $$$$$ Go plant apple seed, what do you reap? I prefer to plant $ that's why I am reaping $$$$$,Glory to God.
Janet Adikinyi's comment on 2013-10-26 22:19:56:
Let God Himself speak to you about this, whether to give or not to give, whether still required of us or not. Personally, He has instructed me to obey, so I believe it is still required of us in the new dispensation!
