Will a man rob God?

This topic may look unrealistic, a man to rob God, yet, it’s not far from the truth. Man  whom God created and gave dominion over all things after creation in Genesis 1:28 (Makes sure you read it with understanding) turned to be robber to his Maker, God I know you may be questioning, how can a man rob  God, the owner all everything? Yes, God owns everything but He still demand something from us as the act of worship and appreciation to Him. Man robs God in tithe and offering.

Now, what does the Scripture mean by this words; “Will a man rob God?”. Man may be  wondering, when did I rob God? But listen, God said you have robbed Him. In Malachi 3:8, the Bible said;
 “Will a man rob God? Yet ye said, wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings.”

Our tithe and offering is a symbol of appreciation to God and we must not neglect it when we are serving God. He is happy when we pay our tithes and offerings to Him.
I am motivated to write this short post because, many Christians have neglected this aspect our service to God without knowing that  not paying their tithe and offering is stealing from God and he is not happy about it. He hates robbers, so  don’t be one of them, let there be a change of heart, learn to pay them and stop owing God.

What is tithe?

1.       Tithe is one tenth of your annual increase, gain contributed voluntarily.

2.       To tithe is to freely give one-tenth of one’s income annually to the Lord through His church.
Learn to give to God what is due to Him. Tithing is the act of reciprocating to God on what he did and what he is about to do for us. Don’t be a robber in the house of God; learn to pay your tithes unto the Lord.

Paying your tithe must surely cost you something, but never look at what you give as waste but see it as sacrifice. There is no sacrifice without gain. When you pay it consistently, God will  multiply your income more and  more, you will never lack anything good.
Remember, what you sow is what you will reap, remember, Cain and Abel in Genesis 4:1-5. Sow big to God and God will give you big.

Friend, I want to tell you that the first thing you must do before your tithes will be accepted is to first, give your life to God, let Jesus be your Lord, give Him first place in your life and in your service, I bet you, you will never regret your actions and your service to Him will be accepted.

In 2 Corinthians 8:5,  it said; “And this they did, not as we hoped, but first gave their own salves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.”
Your tithes pleases God when your life pleased Him.
You cannot be a getter when you are not a giver. Givers never lack.
