Are you rich? Find out today – Tithe Challenge Week 4

90 Day Tithe ChallengeThose of you taking the Tithe Challenge, I am so proud of you!  You are stepping out in faith and it’s awesome.  My prayers are with you right now.

You may be under attack as you have committed to give to God’s kingdom.   It’s OK, that’s a sign you are doing the right thing.  Hang in there!

We already have another story from someone in our tithe challenge.  Chrystal writes, “We have been tithing 10% and as hard as it was in the beginning, we don’t even notice that the money is not there. Not only are we not noticing that the 10% is not there but it seems like I keep “finding” money. We have money left over at the end of the month.”

To read more, check out last week’s comment here.  Our check out our Facebook page:

You may see something good happen like a check in the mail, or getting the job or raise you’ve been wanting like we have seen.  You may not.  But, you will feel satisfied and closer to God as you walk in faith.  You will know that God is God at some point during this three months, but don’t quit.

Today I am going to share something from The Global Rich List.

Every now and then you may see a list containing the richest people in the world.  You may even wonder what it would be like to have that sort of cash. But where would you sit on one of those lists? Here’s your chance to find out. Go to  Type in your country and income and where you compare in the world to the other people.  Its eye opening!

For instance, if you make $48,000 annually in your household, you are in the top 1% of the wealthiest people in the world!

Did you know three billion people live on less than $2 per day while 1.3 billion get by on less than $1 per day? 

I used to think that rich meant someone who had a lot more than I have.  Now I know that rich is a matter of perspective.  I am rich, you are rich. You are richer than 99% of people in the world.  Listen to God’s perspective “For everyone to whom much is given, from him/her much will be required” Luke 12:48

This verse is haunting to me.  I have to tell myself, “God has given me so much.  But why? To keep, to hoard, to spend only on myself?  No, to manage well and give some for God’s purposes.”

Be rich, but be obedient too.  Tithing is giving what God requires.  Way to go!
