Stop Tithing for Lent

CandlesI know, it’s a little late to stop tithing for lent. But if you haven’t started stopping anything yet, then here’s your perfect opportunity to give up tithing for lent. Many churches have started the 90 day tithing challenge. Basically, it asks you to commit to tithe for 90 days, and by the end, if you are still struggling with your bills, then the church will refund your money. Note they didn’t tell you that they will want you to open up your checking account to them so that they can analyze that you’ve spent too much on vacations, parties, or entertainment.

So, I’m throwing out the stop tithing lent challenge. Give up tithing for the next few weeks before Good Friday. This is not a challenge to stop giving. This is a challenge to begin a journey of sacrificial, spirit led giving. By the end of this journey i want to see how blessed your life has been. By the end of lent, if you feel that Spirit led, freewill giving has devastated your spiritual life, then by all means, go back to tithing (No, i’m not gonna offer any refunds)

    I can’t believe you would tell anyone to stop tithing. That is just crazy. That is like saying stop your blessings. God blesses His people that tithe or not but there are special blessings set aside for the tither. Bring ye all the tithe into my store house so that there will be meat in my house, that I may pour open up the windows of heavens and pour you out a blessing that you will not have room to receive it.

    Give and it shall be given unto you. You should be led by the Spirit to give but that is outside of your tithes. Tithes are a requirement.

  2. Savoy,
    I believe that telling anyone to tithe is even crazier. Because it is like putting them under a curse. Galatians 3:10 states, “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse”
