Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.

Make a Chart to Track Your Progress

Start with an area of strength. For example, if you are strong in financial faithfulness (budget and tithing) track this for a month to see just how strong you are. There may be some areas of improvement even in your area of strength.
Do not neglect any of the areas listed, but get a victory first then move on to the more difficult areas.
