Robbing God?

You're not "robbing God" if you don't give 10% of your income to a church. Malachi 3 had to do with Israel and the Old Covenant Levite priests, and how the lawful tithes (of food) had been neglected. It never did and never will have anything to do with giving money to a church - nor to any entity for the matter. The good news is that in the New Covenant we're free to give however much or however little we desire, knowing that our motivation for giving is the benefit and well-being of others, so we're encouraged to give generously. Rather than giving from a certain standard or percentage, we give freely from the heart.

Here's a link to a blog post from Andrew Farley, entitled "Are You Robbing God? No!"
