The 90-Day Challenge
There’s only one place in the Bible where God told his followers to test him. In the book of Malachi, when teaching about generosity, God said, “Test me in this and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven.” It’s a step of faith. When it comes to our finances, what God really wants is for us to trust him with our whole hearts.
Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
Tithing is a giving principle that teaches us to give the first 10% of our income to the local church; it is one of the most tangible ways we worship God. It declares that He is first in our lives and opens our hearts to His plan. We believe wholeheartedly that God blesses those who give generously, so if you’re not tithing already, we want to issue a challenge: Take the 90-Day Tithe Challenge. Tithe for three months and trust God with the rest. If you don’t start to see a transformation in your heart or in your life, we will refund 100% of your tithe, no questions asked.
