Yes, but in Malachi God is speaking to Israel and the tithe seems to go directly to the temple/priests.
Since our bodies are the temple of Christ, how would tithing apply? It wouldn't seem like we'd be giving a tenth to a building, but to people.

I also find it interesting that many seem to think that the "tenth" they are supposed to give should be money. When Abraham gave his tithe to Melchizedek, he gave of his flocks and servants and, I'm assuming, whatever coin he had. It was a tenth of everything he owned.
When Jesus spoke to the Pharisees, they were tithing anise and cumin, etc.

I don't think the question should be, "Do you give a tenth?" but, "Do you give all?"
