• Waiting for the LORD at His temple Devotional

    Malachi 3

    Dr. R.C. Sproul has often pointed out that Malachi 3:10 is the only place in Scripture where God commands us to put Him to the test. It is otherwise sinful to test the Lord, but we may test Him with the tithe. When we give to the work of the Lord, He promises to bless us and meet our needs—not necessarily to make us rich materially but to satisfy us and make us content. Let us give to the Lord’s work that we might see Him keep His promises. View Resource

  • The Test of Personal Hardship Devotional

    Nehemiah 5:1-13

    God does not need our money and time to advance His kingdom, but He has chosen these means to help support the kingdom’s extension to the ends of the earth. He has called us to give of ourselves as a test of our obedience and to prove that we value Him more than silver or gold. May we be faithful to His call, believing that He will supply all of our needs in accordance with His love for us. View Resource

  • Cheerful Giving Devotional

    2 Corinthians 9:6–15

    Prosperity preachers pervert the Word of God when they call on believers to demand that the Lord bless them a hundredfold when they give. Still, we should expect that God will abundantly bless us when we give with a cheerful heart (but not necessarily with money). Therefore, we should be looking for opportunities to help the church cover its expenses for ministries such as missions (both at home and abroad) and serving the poor. View Resource
