First10 tithing challenge horizontal                             
Welcome to CONNECT Church’s First 10 Tithing Challenge.  We hope that you will find this information helpful as you determine if you want to take the tithing challenge.
 
The basis for this tithing challenge is found in Malachi 3:10.  In this passage God says, through the prophet Malachi, “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!”
 
The premise of this challenge is simple.  We are challenging all those who do not on a consistent basis tithe, to begin tithing.  Tithing is a relatively simple concept.  God is asking that you give back to the church ten percent of the gross income that you make.  So if you make $100.00 your tithe on that would be $ 10.00.  You can scale that to any amount that you make. Here is where the interesting part comes in.  In the passage above God asks us to put Him to the test.  That is what I am asking you to do as well.  Put God to the test.  Give your entire tithe and see if God holds true to his word.
 
I believe that God will take care of you in ways that you have never even imagined.  I believe that if you take this challenge you will wish that you had started tithing long ago.  I believe that it will change your spiritual temperature as you begin to trust God with everything instead of trying to make it work on your own.
 
That is the challenge.  I am looking forward to hearing about the great things that God is going to do in your life.
