It’s a Heart Thing, Not a Money Thing
There are more than 2,000 scriptures in the Bible on giving, money and possessions. Why? Jesus gave us the short answer: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21
As followers of Christ, we’re called to share the good news of the Kingdom, and to be generous with everything we have including our love, our time, and our money. So how does tithing (giving 10% of what we earn) fit into that picture?
In the Old Testament, God used tithes to take care of his people. In the New Testament, God continues to bless his people, and advance his Kingdom through generous giving that supports the church. So which do we believe? Both.
There's only one place in the Bible God challenged His followers to test Him. “’Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.’”
- Malachi 3:10.
If you’re not tithing already, we invite you to prayerfully consider taking the 90-Day Challenge. After you sign up, we'll send you resources and encouragement. We pledge to *refund 100% of your giving, no questions asked, if you don’t see God’s tangible and/or intangible blessings in your life. Test Him, trust Him, and see what He does!
