The Key of Financial Peace
While a lot of giving in Christianity focuses in on the tithe, the important thing is to realize that God owns it all, not just 10%. Giving our tithe and offerings reminds us that God is the owner and is part of the praise and worship of God.
What is a tithe? The tithe is defined as a tenth of your increase. The Bible tells us to give our "first-fruits", which means off the top. This is why Dave puts tithing on the top of all of his budget forms and should be done throughout the babysteps, not just when you get out of debt. The tithe is to go to your local church.
We are on babystep 6 and are looking forward to to making it babystep 7 and being creative in ways we can give to others! This ends my series on the Financial Peace curriculum. If you have any other topics you would be interested in please comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
