God spoke through the Old Testament prophet before the 400 year silence by saying, "Return to me and I will return to you." and they asked, "How are we to return?" Malachi 3:7
And His instruction for the 'way back' was to trust Him in their finances and resources by giving tithes and offerings.
A simple instruction, and effective 'thermometer' of their trust and submission to their King of Kings.
Lord Jesus, I open that 'box' of my life to You again.
To 'return to you' with my trust and love lived out
in this practical way
