How can I evaluate my own heart with regard to money?
a) God’s causes (church, Christian ministries)
b) to people in need (outside your family)
How close is it to 10% of your income? Read Matthew 6:19-34; I Timothy 6:6-10; II Cor. 8:1-15; 9:6-15. Do you need to adjust your giving in light of eternal values?
How do I evaluate the use of my “non-liquid” resources?
How can I establish a regular plan of giving?
1) Decide what percentage of your income you will give to the Lord’s work this year.
2) Now ask two questions: On one hand, is this a sacrificial figure? On the other hand, is it a responsible figure?
3) Now set aside the Lord’s portion first whenever the money is received. It is His, not yours. Remember — the more you trust God with your material treasure, the more He will entrust you with his spiritual treasure (Luke 16:9-12; II Cor. 9:10-12).
What do we mean by tithe?
In the Old Testament believers were required to give a tenth of their income to the support of the ministry and the needs of the poor. However, if you were to include what believers were to give for feasts, sacrifices, gleanings for the poor, and special offerings…it would amount to 23%-25% of gross income. The New Testament does not specifically mention the tithe, but since we are far more blessed and indebted to God than Old Testament believers, we assume that we are held more responsible for generosity, not less. Thus the tithe (10%) is a kind of minimum guideline for giving.
