No, this is not a message on tithing, but there are other great lessons in this text. Yes, the tithe is an important part of this text, but also teaches several important truths.
Malachi answers these important challenges in three ways:
I. THE LORD REMEMBERS HIS OWN VERSE 16.
They call us freaks, fanatics, fools and fundies today. But in Genesis 8:1, we read that “God remembered Noah.”
There are several things God remembers:
A. God remembers our character – those that fear God verse 16.
God said about the lost in Romans 3:18, “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”
B. God remembers our contemplation, “thought upon His name” verse 16.
C. God remembers our conversation, “the Lord heard it” verse 16.
Somebody said that there are three books in God’s library:
- His BOOK OF REVELATION.
Where God has written His last things.
- His BOOK OF REDEMPTION.
Where God has written of His Lamb.
- His BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE.
Where God has written our good things not our sin. When you do anything in His name, He writes it down.
