TITHE MATTERS TO GOD!
Do you know that Tithing is important? God evaluates our offering.

· And He cares about the attitude with which we are giving!

Speaking of Attitudes,
· One Of Our Attitudes To Giving Should Be Simplicity!

· One Of Our Attitudes To Giving Should Be Thankfulness!

· One Of Our Attitudes To Giving Should Be Cheerfulness!

· One Of Our Attitudes To Giving Should Be Liberality!

· One Of Our Attitudes To Giving Should Be Sacrificially!

Tithing:
The art of giving IN BRIEF

Tithing is something God asks us to do, a habit we need to develop to live life to the fullest. When we give to God, He gives us back much more!

STUFF TO CONSIDER
1 Money doesn’t bring HAPPINESS.

2 Money doesn’t bring SECURITY.

3 Following God’s plan brings HAPPINESS & SECURITY.

4 Giving proves I recognize God as the RIGHTFUL OWNER.

5 Giving proves that I put GOD FIRST.

ACTION PLAN
1 GIVE first. (Don’t give what’s leftover)

2 INSPECT your heart, (God wants cheerful giving)

3 REJECT recognition. (Don’t look for praise)

4 EXPECT God’s Blessing. (He promised it and even asked us to test Him!)

SCRIPTURE SUPPORT
Luke 6:38
If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving—large or small—it will be used to measure what is given back to you.”

Malachi 3:8-10
“Should people cheat God? Yet you have cheated Me. You ask, ‘What do You mean? When did we cheat You?’ ‘You cheated Me of the tithes and offerings due to Me. Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in My temple. If you do,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘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. Let Me prove it to you.'”
