This morning I had the opportunity to teach from Mark 6 where Jesus feeds the 5,000. I really felt led to challenge our church about what we’re doing with our 5 loaves and 2 fish. So I issued a 90-day tithe challenge. I didn’t know how it would be received, but I know the blessing of honoring God with my finances and I truly want every person in our church to experience that blessing as well.
The challenge is that an individual “bring the full tithe” for 90 days and see what God does. For every person that indicated on our Connection Card that they were going to take the challenge, I am going to send them a copy of The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn (which if you’ve never read this book, you need to).
I didn’t know what to expect, but we had 75 people say they wanted to take the challenge and test God in this area of giving! I think they are going to be amazed at how God honors those who obey His Word!
If you’re one of the 75 who took the challenge, I just want you to know how proud I am of you. As I said this morning, this is what separates the fans of Jesus from the followers of Jesus! I look forward to hearing the stories of what God does!
