What do we mean when we say “tithe”?
We can’t take the credit for coming up with this tithe idea. A tithe is the biblical concept of giving away 10% of your earnings, an idea that was instituted thousands of years ago as a way to thank and worship God (Deuteronomy 14:22). In ancient times the tithe was a portion of your crops and herds, but the principle still holds true today – everything you have comes from God, and returning at least 10% of it to God’s work in the world is an act of acknowledging where it came from, what it is for, and remembering who owns it anyway.
What is a “Tithe Challenge”?
Based on another concept from the Bible, a “Tithe Challenge” tests God’s promise to honor his financial plan for humanity. God is actually the one challenging us. He throws it down lovingly (Malachi 3:10), in essence asking, “Don’t you think I will completely bless and take care of you if you live on 90% of what I gave you, so you can invest in others and not just yourself?”
So, what’s the catch? Is this just another “give us your money” scheme?
No catch. Every giving opportunity at Lake Point Church is completely low pressure. People say “no thanks” all the time. We aren’t panicked or bothered by that; we just feel bummed that people are missing out on what God promised. As a matter of fact, we believe that giving away at least 10% of your income is the right way to live and we want people to experience God’s blessing.
