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.
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 — not the
bean counters at Thrive. 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?” Thrive has just decided
to remind people of this and add a little twist.
You read that right. We feel like it’s a decision God put on our hearts, and we feel
that everyone taking the challenge will be blessed by this unique opportunity. The no
risk approach is a great way to “jump start” a new reality for individuals and families.
There is certainly a benefit to the mission and ministry of Thrive, both here and around
the world — make no mistake about that part of our motives. But we think it is a win-win.
Thrive people will be blessed and the work of Christ in the world will too. That
seems like a great risk to take.
Whether you’re currently giving, or you’re choosing to jump in for the first time, just
