Ask Dave

Tithe While In Debt?

Dave says it doesn't matter what he thinks, the answer to tithing is right there in Scripture.

QUESTION: Steve and his wife make $160,000 and recently sold their house. They have $60,000 in debt, including a $22,000 student loan. What do they do in terms of tithing?


ANSWER: Dave says it doesn’t matter what he thinks … the answer is right there in Scripture.  If you're a Christian, you're asked to give 10%.  It's not your money anyway and if you can't live off 90%, what makes you think you can live off 100%?  Tithing isn't for God, he doesn't need our money.  Tithing is for us to help keep life in perspective.
