Fear of God Devotional: Is Lack of Giving Connected with Lack of the Fear of God?

How can we increase in the fear of the Lord?

In this video, Gary Powers explains that one way we can increase our fear of God is through our giving to a local church, the returning of a tithe to the Lord. It was implemented to teach God’s people to fear Him always. In America today, there sadly is a lack of individuals who tithe – could it be connected with a similar lack of the fear of God?

We ought to view tithing as giving to a sovereign God, returning that which is His, as a way of demonstrating our gratitude to Him. Tithing is a recognition that everything we receive from God is from Him alone, a gracious and merciful Priest and King.

Proverbs 3:9-10 (NKJV) – “Honor the Lord with your possessions, And with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.”
