Malachi 3:6-15

Money is an easy litmus test for a healthy family—not the amount of money, but the attitude toward it. God isn’t after your money, he’s after your heart. But here’s the thing. You want to know where your heart is? Follow the money.

Jesus makes this clear in his teaching on the Sermon on the Mount when he said, “where your treasure is, there you heart will be also.” There’s the litmus test. In the Old Testament, God instituted the tithe, the giving of 10% of your harvest (income) to the temple. It revealed whether or not you trusted money or God.
