What is a "Giving Challenge"
Based on a concept from the Bible, a “Giving Challenge” tests God’s promise to honor his financial plan for our lives. God is actually the one challenging us — not the bean counters at Thrive. He throws it down lovingly (Malachi 3:10), in essence asking, “Don’t you think I will completely bless and take care of you if you give back a portion of what I have given you, so you can invest in others and not just yourself?” Thrive has just decided to remind people of this concept and add a little twist.
We believe that God doesn't want something FROM you, but instead he wants to do something FOR you. So we are asking Thrivers to step up and take the challenge! If you don't currently give anything to the local church we are asking you to consider starting somewhere. Prayerfully decide on an amount (we recommend a consistent percentage of your income) and how often you plan to give (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc...) and start there. If you are already a regular giver to Thrive please consider increasing your gift to a full 10% of your income, otherwise known as a "tithe" (Deuteronomy 14:22). Then pay attention to the way God moves in your life and finances over the next 90 days. We're confident that he will uphold his promise.
Money-back guarantee?? Really?!?
You read that right. The no risk approach is a great way to “jump start” a new reality for individuals and families. There is certainly a benefit to the mission and ministry of Thrive, both here and around the world — make no mistake about that part of our motives. But we think it is a win-win. Thrivers will be blessed and the work of Christ in the world will too. That seems like a great risk to take.
How do I accept the 90 day challenge?
Whether you’re currently giving, or you’re choosing to jump in for the first time, just let us know you want to be part of the 90 Day Challenge by signing up HERE.
We won’t pester you or chase you down — this is simply a way for us to encourage you a few times during the 90 day period and also to have a record of giving, should you choose to exercise the money-back guarantee option.
The next 90-day Challenge giving period starts Sunday, January 28, 2018 and runs for 90 days, through Saturday, April 27, 2018.
