What is a Tithe? – Tithing in the Bible

by | Feb 26, 2020

What is a Tithe and what does Tithing Mean?

The Bible asks us to give our first and our best back to God, and He will bless the rest. A tithe is ten percent of our income. We give back to the Lord ten percent of what He’s given us because it all belongs to Him. Tithing is a great way to show God that you put Him first and foremost. If you are not tithing already, a great way to start is with the 90-Day Tithe Challenge.

There are many people who experience God’s blessings when they tithe, but usually the first step is the hardest one to take. That’s why the 90-Day Tithe Challenge was started. If you put God first in your finances for 90 days, and you do not experience His blessing, we will return 100% of your tithe from the 90 day period. So, if you are nervous about tithing for 90 days, it might help to know we will give you a 100% money back guarantee without asking any questions.

Tithing in the Bible

Tithing can greatly benefit your life. Any time we take God at His word, we are using faith. In the book of Matthew, Jesus tells us that if we look after God’s Kingdom first, He will then provide for all our physical needs.

Malachi 3:10-11, “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop their fruit before it is ripe,” says the LORD Almighty.

If you have done the 90-Day Challenge, we’d love to hear your experience.
