4-Month Giving Challenge
Countless people experience God’s blessings when they tithe, but often the first step is the hardest one to take. That’s why we created the 4-Month Giving Challenge. Here’s the challenge: Put God first in your finances for the next 4 months by giving a percentage of your finances to God’s kingdom through the local church.
Why a Percentage?
The Bible asks us to give our first and our best back to God and He will bless the rest (Leviticus 27:30, Deuteronomy 14:23). This “first” is the tithe, or tenth of our income. We return to God 10% of what He’s given us, because it belongs to Him. The word “tithe” is derived from the Hebrew word ma’aser and it literally means a tenth. Ten percent of everything belongs to God.
Why do we tithe?
Essentially, tithing is a contract with Gad based on the promises of God in Malachi 3:10 – 11. The Bible says, “The purpose of tithing is to teach us always to put God first in our lives” (Deuteronomy 14:23). Tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything that we have. It is also God’s personal invitation to an outpouring of his blessing in our lives. In Malachi 3:10 (NLT) God says this: “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be enough room to store it.”
This is the only place in the bible where God tells is to put him to the test. In other words He’s saying, “Go ahead. I dare you. See if you can out-give me!”
