Do any of you get an allowance? What do you have to do to earn it? (Wait for responses.)
The Bible teaches us that we have to be generous with our money, but do you know what more people want to do? They want to hold on to it tightly. (Squeeze the money in one of your hands.)
They see someone in need and instead of being generous and helping them, they squeeze onto their money.
They go to church and they know God wants them to give their tithes and offerings generously, but instead they squeeze tightly onto what they have.
But there is a very big problem. See in Malachi 3:10 God says that he wants to open the windows of Heaven to bless you! Doesn’t that sound pretty amazing? Would you like God to bless you like that?
(Keep squeezing the money.)
The problem is that when God tried to bless us He can’t because our hands are closed too tightly from holding onto what we have. We are clinging so tightly to our money that God cannot bless us like he wants to.
What do we need to do to be able to get the blessings from God? We need to open our hands. (Open your hand.)
When our hands are open we are now willing to give generously to our church and to those in need. When our hands are open we are now able to fully receive the blessings from Heaven that God wants to give us.
