No Excuse for Neglect in Payment of Tithes

The Lord has always required this response to His arrangements in carrying forward His work in our world. He has never changed His own devised plan. He lays claim to all as His own, and of that entrusted to man, He claims His portion. “For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from Mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto Me, and I will return unto you, saith the Lord of hosts.” TM 306.1

Those who plead that they cannot understand this plain and decisive statement—which, if they are obedient, means so much to them in blessings which will be received, when even the windows of heaven will be opened and blessings poured out to overflowing—are not honest before God. Their excuse that they did not know the will of God will be of no avail for them in the great day of judgment. TM 306.2
