Bring the full tithe into the storehouse . . . says the Lord of hosts; see if I will not open the windows 
of heaven for you and pour down for you 
an overflowing blessing. - Malachi 3:10 (NRSV)

Today's Prayer
Eternal God, teach us to contribute sincerely and regularly to your work in the world. Amen.
