We understand that trusting God with our finances can feel difficult at times. We also believe that we serve a generous God that is worth trusting. So, we offer the 90 day tithe challenge as a risk free way to help people take a step towards Him. The Scriptures say to “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Our hope is that the 90 day tithe challenge would allow people to taste the goodness of our God.
The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving. It’s called the Tithe, which means a tenth. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we make a decision to put God first in our lives. We give our first and our best back to God, believing that He will bless the rest. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, our faith, and our desire to live and love like Jesus.
At Journey, we believe that any time we take a step towards God, He will show up. We also believe that God is incredibly generous. So, any time we open up our hands in offering to God, we give him an opportunity to refill that same hands with his blessings. Though those blessings may not always be financial (though sometimes they definitely are), they are always exactly what we need in the moment.
