“Blessed be Abram by God Most High, the Creator of heaven and earth; and blessed be God Most High, Who delivered your foes into your hand.” —Genesis 14:19-20

Everything Abram did turned out great (see 12:2-3). He rescued Lot from the kings who had captured him. On the way home from this mission, Abram met Melchizedek. Abram “gave him a tenth of everything” (14:20) he had, and thus began the practice of tithing. This experience was also a prophecy of a new priesthood “according to the order of Melchizedek” (Ps 110:4; Heb 5:6).

Prayer: Father, by tithing may I let You love and bless me.
Promise: “He and his party deployed against them at night, defeated them, and pursued them.” —14:15
