Giving is a very personal issue with each of us. However, there is nothing more clearly taught in the scriptures than giving. We are to give 10% of all God blessed us with to his kingdom. As the government is blessed prior to taxes, i.e. “gross,” we are to bless the Lord with the gross.
Giving in the scriptures is actually around 23%: 10% to God (Mal 3:10); 10% to you (Deu 14:24-26); and a third-year tithe for the poor/alms, which works out to 3.333 % a year (Deu 14:28). It's a total of around 23%
Jesus said we ought to give the tithe among many other things.
The apostle Paul said to give with a cheerfully.
Giving is a very personal issue. As with everything else, we grow into giving. It requires faith, trust in God, and commitment.
