LifeTithe.com Take a life story inventory...
Will you "Tithe Your Life" to World Missions?

This is your lifetime challenge... To tithe at least 10% of the rest of your life into supporting, building, contributing and personally participating in world missions no matter where you are geographically... It's a method of better fitting missions into your life to surge up and get plugged in.

Let’s look at an average 70 year life span and consider tithing 10% of your life to God for mission work. Refunding the first 20 years for training, 10% of 50 years is 5 years of mission work over a 70 year life span. How about serving 3 years full time after retirement, leaving a timely 2 year term opportunity right now wherever you are in life to serve God in missions. Keep in mind the Mormons make a two year commitment mandatory and they send themselves.

Doing The Math
Breaking It Down

70- 20 = 50 10% of 50 = 5 years
3 after retirement, 2 years now

Tithe 10% of a 40 hour work week as a mission reservist.

Or... Tithe your life like a military reservist's part time schedule...

If you figure 10% of the annual 40 hour work week, it matches the same military work week schedule. It could be the ideal way to breakdown your goals.

Of course these time breakdowns are just ways to wake you up and make you take initiative to fit missions into your life. Take inventory and you may realize that you are currently be spending more time watching sitcom reruns than God's greatest priority...

The mission of bringing every tongue, tribe and nation to Him. May this simple math inspire you to intentionally fit missions into your life better and redeem the time for world missions. We all need structure, encouragement and accountability for this. That's when SurgeUp.com online community including MissionReserves.com helps.

52 weeks x 40 hours = 2080 annual work hours.

2080 ÷ 10% = 208 hours for a  10%  annual life tithe

Breaking It Down
1 weekend a month x 11 months (December off) @ 16 hours = 176 hours
+
1 summer week annually @ 40 hours = 206 annual hours or a 10% annual life tithe
If that 2 year math makes sense, but is too challenging for your current time commitments for now or you can't pack your bags just yet for a two year trek just keep reading the math below and in the next column... Remember the idea is the fit missions in your life. By better redeeming the time you can stay plugged in and surge up with missions. It comes down to time management of your life priorities.

Don't let your good intentions fall through the cracks. Sign up today for some accountability risk free by clicking the starburst below...
Doing The Math

4 hours per week is also of course 10% of a 40 hour work week or 208 annual hours...

4 hours a week is 240 minutes or just under 35 minutes a day.
Breaking It Down

4 hours a week can also be 48 minutes a day during a 5 day work week.

The same time amount of meaningless sitcom reruns.

Think of it, anything you do for 35 minutes a day is tithing a 40 hour work week work annually.
