Many people assumed that in Malachi 3:8-9 the curse was God’s anger towards us for our failure to give tithes and offerings. God does not curse his children. In these lessons, we learn that the curse of Malachi is about acquiring mindsets. A blessing or curse is the acquisition of a state of mind that comes through making choices. Choosing God opens our hearts and expands our ability to become more like God. We can see and think creatively as he does.
