Traditionally, tithing is giving 10% of your gross earnings.
If 10% inspires you then go for it. However, any amount that stretches you and makes you examine and move through your beliefs around lack and limitation is the percentage with which we encourage you to begin your tithing practice. If that is 5%, 8% or 20%, it is yours to take into prayer to know the right amount for you.
Be sure to consider not only where you are giving to, but where you are giving from. One thing that is absolutely necessary: whatever the amount, it must be given with love. If a tithe is given with underlying motives of trying to get more - then you will not experience the gifts and freedom of this amazing practice.
We teach that tithing is not a practice we should do out of a sense of obligation, but something we choose to do out of a generous spirit of love and giving. We promote the message that your tithe is to be given freely and joyously towhatever feeds you spiritually. Most importantly tithing is a demonstration of faith that God is our source of abundance.
