Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in my house, and thus put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you an overflowing blessing. (Malachi 3:10)

Hopefully we can all agree that this is not a promise that God will make us rich if we give 10% of our income to the church. Yet, could there be an important message in these ancient words for 21st century Christians? Join us on Sunday as we explore that question - and the challenge to "test God".
