‘to whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all, first being translated “king of righteousness,” and then also king of Salem, meaning “king of peace,” ‘ Hebrews 7:2
Abraham gave a tenth to the King of Kings because he knew everything belonged to the Lord. Obeying God and giving the first tenth or tithes brings peace, protection, and provision.
‘Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. “And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” Says the Lord of hosts;’ Malachi 3:10-11
Learn to enjoy the peace that comes from giving the tithe into the storehouse (Church) and watch God bless you in a new and exciting way. Give as you are giving to the King of Peace, because He is the King of Peace. You can’t rob God and have peace.
Prayer: “Father, Help me to learn to enjoy giving the first 10th of my income to You. Thank You for the peace it brings. In Jesus Name, Amen.”
