Genesis 14:20 CEV All praise belongs to God Most High for helping you defeat your enemies.” Then Abram gave Melchizedek a tenth of everything.

We can express appreciation by thanking Him with our mouths, but another way we can express our appreciation is to honor God with treasure.

Abram gave Melchizedek, a priest of the Most High God, 10% of everything he had as an act of appreciation for God’s help. God didn’t demand it and Melchizedek didn’t ask for it. Out of Abram’s appreciative heart, he voluntarily gave God 10% of everything.

God has and is still doing some wonderful and amazing things in our own lives. The simple fact that He’s defeated Satan is a reason to be appreciative. Based on our appreciation, it would be fitting for us to give to God praise and a portion of our finances. Some may say we MUST give 10% of our finances to God, but that’s not true. God wants us to voluntarily give (not grudgingly) based on our appreciation (2 Cor. 9:7).

And of course, God’s not going to owe us anything, so anytime we give, He’ll give it back to us in a multiplied way (Luke 6:38).

Let’s financially give to God to express our appreciation to Him.
