Most of us work too hard for too little. So for many, the idea of tithing, bringing the first 10% of our income to God seems overwhelming. But we don’t give because God needs our money, and we don’t give because the church needs our money. It is so much bigger than that. We give because God asked us to, and following through shows that we trust Him.
Here’s the thing, it doesn’t matter how much or how little we make. God promises to pour out blessings on us when we tithe. Tithing is about training our heart to trust God at His word. In Malachi 3:10, the Bible says we can take the promises of God to the bank. When we bring our first and best back to God, He promises to bless the rest. We can’t out-give God.
Malachi 3:10 (NLT)
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do,” says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, “I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won’t have enough room to take it in! Try it! Put me to the test!
WHAT IS THE TITHE CHALLENGE
This is a challenge that begins on July 1st for you to commit to tithe for the following 60 days. By taking the challenge, you agree to return 10% of all your income to God through the church.
This is an agreement with God based on His promises. In Malachi 3:10 God puts out a challenge to each of us. He says when we bring all the tithes into the storehouse, or for us the church, He will open the windows of heaven for you and He will pour out a blessing so great you will not have enough room for it. Then He says, “Try it! Put me to the test!”
WHO IS THE TITHE CHALLENGE FOR
This is for everyone, no matter where you are on this journey. We want to have everyone sign up for this challenge, to put God to the test. It doesn’t matter if you are new to tithing or you have been giving for years. Through the tithe challenge, we are going to be joining together, covering each other in prayer, and believing for breakthroughs in our church, homes, and community.
