For Laine and her husband, the biblical injunction to tithe the first of your income is as natural as breathing. If we give our best to God as Abel did, then we’ll have many blessings in our lives.
My husband and I tithe our income, though not the 10% often suggested by Christian authors. The amount to tithe is an individual decision. To be honest, I find it a difficult topic to discuss, maybe because tithing implies a complete faith in God.
What we have done so far is start out with tithing $20 per week, and then last year we increased that amount to $35 per week. Ideally we would be increasing the current amount to $50, but with the economy doing so terribly and the threat of gas prices rising to as much as $4/gallon, I find it hard to increase our tithing amount right now.
What are your thoughts?
