"Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in my house; and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of Hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to receive it."
3 Nephi 24:10
This is an amazing promise… for a direct and clear action, a blessing so immense that we won’t be able to soak it all up, because we just don’t have the capacity. And the Lord asks us to prove him in this… wow. Plus, isn’t it cool when we have a commandment that we can obey perfectly, and so clearly? We have so many other commandments where it is much harder to know when you’re doing them well, and that are harder to do in the first place. Today, let’s do it. Let’s prove the Lord. Let’s figure out our finances, write the check. Pay our tithing, and see what happens. I have absolutely no doubt that he will fulfill all his words, in this and everything else. And we can have the satisfaction of living one commandment perfectly… as well as anticipating a blessing that will be overwhelmingly good. :)
