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)

Until 2008 my wife and I had not tithed regularly. Our resources were already insufficient to support most of our needs. We were afraid that if we gave regularly, we would not have enough left to live on.
One day, as we reflected on today’s reading from Malachi, we realized...

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

"One Thanksgiving night there was a shooter in my neighborhood . . .

. . . The police were getting the closest families to evacuate. My house was close enough that we could see things happening but far enough away to be safe.

We invited them to come inside until it was safe. Thankfully, the situation was resolved without anyone getting hurt." Read more from Pockets magazine.
