The Bible explains that tithing is an important part of faith for those who follow GOD. Your tithes should be money you set aside first. That’s why “giving” is the first category you will see when you open your Every Dollar budget—because when you tithe before making a plan with the rest of your money, you’re making it a priority instead of an afterthought. You’re giving your first fruits instead of your leftovers.
Leviticus 27:30 (TLB)says, “A tenth of the produce of the land, whether grain or fruit, is the Lord’s, and is holy.”
The question is, “How do I budget and manage THE OTHER 90%?”
GOD has created a wealth-generating system that cannot fail! Are you operating in it?
Money answers everything. The first reaction to that statement by many Christians would be to claim that it is carnal, selfish and outside of biblical values. Yet, it is a direct quote of scripture from Ecclesiastes 10:19, “Money is an essential thing in this life.”
The Bible does not say GOD makes you wealthy; “it says He will give you the power to produce wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18). That means, He will always give you something to put your hands to, anoint your ability, and bring THE BLESSING on the scene when you are obedient to His commands.
