Did you hear about the challenge we've issued at Connexus?
Take God at his word, and if you are not satisfied, we'll give you your money back. We're calling it the three month tithe challenge.
Here's the deal. To wrap up the High Drama series, I talked about letting God into your finances as being one of the biggest faith moves you can make. If you really want to raise the tension in your life – relinquish control of your finances. It's not so much that God wants our money, but more than God doesn't want our money to have us.
So he makes a deal to us – give me 10% and you can live off of 90%. And then he calls it a matter of faith – trust. I imagine that for me to give anyone 10% of what my family makes, I'd really have to trust that person. And that – says God – is the point. Read it for yourself.
The other side of tithing (the practice of giving 10% of your income to God) is that you begin to discover that God can be trusted, that He is faithful. The drama associated with tithing is mostly the drama created by a lack of confidence or trust in God. Once we learn to trust him, we discover a richness in our relationship with Him that we never would have known was there had we not trusted him.
So here's what Connexus is doing – we're going to let you sign up for the three month tithe challenge. Tithe 10% of your income for three months through Connexus. Read Malachi 3:6-12. If you are not completely satisifed that God has been true to his promise, we'll give you your money back. Simple as that.
There is a benefit to Connexus no doubt – we are behind in our givings so far in 2009 (we are running $15% behind and have incurred at $45,000 shortfall so far in 2009). But we believe that the biggest blessing will not be to us – but to you as your relationship with God and your confidence in Him grows.
