Today's verse is in the picture. "I will open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon you. {Malachi 3:10}

Don't jump from the top of the stairs ; I yelled up to my son! He was ready to swing himself over the banister and come down full force on my favorite reading chair. This was a little nook in my foyer where I loved to sit and read as the sunlight from the window on top of the front door bathed me with light. He already had it in his mind to do this, and down he came. Needless to say, my chair was ruined, and my son was unscathed by the experience; Not so his mother! What gets into the mind of a boy that he would even think to do such a thing? He thought it was a great and exciting but I thought it was dumb and dangerous.

Our scripture today is given just before the verse in Malachi that deals with tithing. Some say it is dumb and dangerous to give 10% or more to God, but those are most likely people who don't understand kingdom principles. When God says He will pour out a blessing, He means what He says. All of the promises of God are yes, and amen, which means that so true they are already settled.We can never out-give God. His riches come in all shapes and sizes. They can be people in our lives that are precious, or it can be the gift of hospitality, love or grace. God gives liberally to us, we just have to receive it and seek them out!
