The Blessing of 10

Two weeks ago I shared a messaged called “The Power of 10.” It’s about the vision that I shared with our church to reach 10,000 people and to give away at least 1,000,000 each year in outreach. If you missed that message, you should take a few moments to watch it here.

This past weekend, I shared how I believe we can fund this vision from within our church. I believe God has created a system for building His House on this Earth through tithes and offerings. This can often been a hard concept for many Christ-followers to embrace, especially here in America. We have more money than ever before, and yet we are less generous than ever before. Money has a way of holding on to us, so that we hold on to it. That’s why Jesus said in Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

I believe that if we will focus on building God’s House, that He will focus on building ours. In other words, when we prioritize honoring God with our tithes and offerings, God will pour out blessings on our household. This is a promise found in Scripture that we have seen fulfilled hundreds of times within our church. In fact, I shared this story of how Anthony and Holly Smith experienced God’s blessing in their house when they committed to the tithe.

If you missed the message from this past weekend, I encourage you to take a moment to watch it here. I call it “The Blessing of 10.” I have personally experienced God’s blessing in my own life, and I believe much is attributed to our faithfulness to building God’s House through our tithes and offerings.

One of the best ways to train yourself to be disciplined in this area is through online giving. You can setup reoccurring giving to automatically deduct your tithe (10% of your gross income) on whatever day you get paid. I have done this and have never missed it! God has always blessed us with more than enough to meet our needs. I encourage you to TEST God in this (Malachi 3:10).
