Giving up part of your income seems to be an overwhelming thing. We work hard for our money, right? But among the greatest promises God has made to us is where He promises to pour out His blessings on us when we give to Him. It is a huge step of obedience – one that is designed to draw out our trust in Him – because God is training our hearts to take Him at His Word.
God knew giving would be a challenge. Did you know Jesus used the word “give” 300 more times than he did the words “believe,” “love,” and “pray” COMBINED? In fact, 16 of Jesus’ 38 parables in the gospel deal with the subject of giving and possessions. They were His second-most discussed ideas during His ministry. He knew it would be hard.
Giving to God is rooted in the understanding that we are really giving BACK to God. Giving is worship. Giving is discipleship. God intends that we excel in this area of our lives (2 Corinthians 8:7) Here are 5 God-principles for us to consider:
God owns it all – Psalm 24:1
God shares it all with us – Deuteronomy 8:17-18; 1 Corinthians 4:7
God tells us to give part of it back – Malachi 3:10; Proverbs 3:9-10
God prompts us to TEST Him on HIS faithfulness – Malachi 3:10
God promises to bless the generous hand – Malachi 3:10; Luke 6:38
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, so that there may be food in My house, and test Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows.
Malachi 3:10 (nas)
THIS IS THE ONLY THING IN THE BIBLE GOD SAYS TO TEST HIM ON!
It all starts with the tithe. The word means 10% of our income. Interestingly, the principle was in place at least back to the time of Abraham (hundreds of years before God would institute the practice with Moses and the israelites in the Old Testament Law). It has always been the base of our giving strategy – designed to draw us into trust in God at the very foundation of our material need! If you can trust God with your finances, it will affect nearly every other part of your trusting God!
THE THF GIVING CHALLENGE
The ‘THF Giving Challenge’ is designed to give you a venue to believe God, trust Him and testify to His faithfulness to His promise. Our challenge is to start with a TITHE [10%] of our income and sustain it for 90 days. At the end of ninety days, take a step back and evaluate the ways God has blessed your life: materially and spiritually.
