God gives us the goal to give 10% of what we earn for the worship of our God. This can be a great challenge when we balance our income with all the demands on our money. If you’re not tithing 10% try to challenge yourself to give a little more than you did before.
“Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year. Then you may turn it into money. With the money secure in hand, go to the place that the Lord your God will choose.” (Deut. 14:22-29)
