Generally, the Bible approaches the subject of tithing from the opposite perspective, promising us great blessings when we do tithe. A good example appears in Luke 6:38. “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” God will always reward our generosity.
Tithing is the only area of our relationship with God in which He encourages us to test Him. “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 you will not have room enough for it.” (Malachi 3:10)
