God is not out to impoverish you; He wants to enrich you. He doesn’t want to take from you; He wants to give to you. But He has to do it His way.
Psalm 50:12 says, “If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is Mine and the fullness thereof.” God doesn’t need us to give Him our money. He owns everything. Tithing is God’s way to grow Christians.
I heard about a corn farmer who had two boys. While most little boys were off fishing, hunting, and running around, this farmer’s sons were working in the cornfields. Someone asked the farmer, “Why do you work those boys so diligently? You don’t need all that corn!” He said, “I’m not raising corn, I’m raising boys.”
You can sing all you want about how you love Jesus, you can have crocodile tears in your eyes, but the consecration that doesn’t reach your purse has not reached your heart.
