Within us exists a battle, a struggle between God's call to a life of generosity versus the fear of scarcity. One believes in the promise that God provides, and the other holds tightly to all that's mine. Jesus says we can't serve two masters. Because God wants our heart, he teaches us a lot about what to do with our money. When we put God first in our finances, everyone wins.

WHAT IS THE TITHE CHALLENGE?


In Malachi 3:10, God gives both a challenge and a promise, "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."

At the time of Malachi, the storehouse was located in the temple, the place of worship for God's people. The simple command to bring a portion of all God provides is an act of worship, which promises His faithfulness of continued provision. What's amazing is that God challenges his people to test His faithfulness and generosity. 

TheMET is a church rising to the challenge, trusting God by bringing the tithe.

WHY ARE WE DOING THE TITHE CHALLENGE?

Stewarding well what God has provided is one way that we grow as mature followers of Jesus. Proverbs 3:9-10 reminds us to give God our first and our best when it says, "Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine."



WE'RE IN THIS TOGETHER


Bringing the first 10% of your income and giving it to God through your local church is a big step of faith. If you're ready to take the challenge and begin tithing at TheMET, we commit to coming alongside you in this exciting journey. Throughout the challenge, you will receive resources, encouragement, and partnership from the leadership at TheMET. We're excited for you and would love to support you in this step of faith. You'll also be able to share your 'God Story' by sharing the impact of your giving with others in your church.

The time is now to test and trust God that He'll come through and provide for your needs. Join us in taking the Tithe Challenge and see how God works in your life!
