TITHES

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 2 Chronicles 31:1-12

Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts… everlasting.

Malachi 3:10

Many people do not pay tithes because tithe paying has not become one of the habits of their lives. Amazingly, people have not formed the habit of paying tithes regularly. Paying tithes regularly is one of the most important habits that you must develop for your life.

Many years ago, I came to the conviction that I must pay tithes regularly. I was a student in secondary school when I formed that habit. Even though I was not a salaried worker, I paid ten percent of everything I received. Even when I was seventeen years old, I believed that not paying tithes brought about curses. One day, a friend received her exam results and was not happy because she had not done as well as she expected to.

I asked her whether she paid tithes. She said she did not. Then I told her with a teenager’s conviction that I felt that she had not passed her exams very well because she did not pay tithes. I felt the devourer had “eaten up” some of her exam marks. She could not believe that not paying tithes could affect her exam results.

I share this experience because it reminds me of how long I have strongly believed in paying tithes. It is important to develop the good Christian habit of paying tithes as early in your life as possible.

God will bless you over the years as you faithfully support His work.
