You say, ‘How much should I give?’ God sets the baseline at one-tenth of your income (Leviticus 27:32). Whatever you give beyond that will be determined by three things:

  1. Your ability: ‘Every man shall give what as he is able, according to the blessing of the Lord your God which he has given you’ (Deuteronomy 16:17 NKJV).
  2. Your desire to reap: God will ‘…multiply the seed that you have sown…’ (2Corinthians 9:10 NKJV).
  3. Your love: ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind’ (Matthew 22:37 NKJV).
