It cannot be refuted. God Himself said it. “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house. Test Me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.” (Malachi 3:10)
Prema Barnachea is a quiet, soft-spoken senior taking up education courses at the local university. She lost her mother when she was still in high school. This brought her closer to her dad who runs a tiny sari-sari store to provide for the family. Prema was cooperative when it came to helping conserve the family resources to make ends meet. However, she was not immune to the pressures brought about by her peers and what society dictates. Secretly, she wished to have a smart phone just like everyone else. However, that lack did not discourage her from giving back to God. She faithfully offered ten percent of whatever she had. She would always declare in faith that, “It’s all about You, Abba Daddy! I serve and love You because you first loved me.”
One day to her surprise, her aunt gave her a new smart phone. She recognizes that God used her aunt to bless her. In gratitude, Prema intends to use that blessing to serve God and the church.
