There are several ways to figure out what your tithing is:
It is recommended to follow these simple steps in order to calculate tithe:
Determine your monthly income: This is how much money you make per month or year, depending on what form of payment you receive. For instance, if you get paid $1 for every $10 sold, then $1 per ten dollars would be your monthly income. If annually, then they multiply that number by 12 to find their yearly earnings.
It is important to accumulate all kinds of income you have to see the whole picture. Don't forget to incorporate income from dividends, return on investments, interests, or any other kind of income you may have.
Tithe percentage: This is basically 10% of all income Christians pay for tithing. So, if you earn $20,000 a year, then 10% would equal $2000. This is the part you give back to God.
Tithe amount: This is the simple equation of multiplying your monthly income by 0.1 (or 10%). For example, if your monthly earnings are $2000, then your tithe amount would be $200. Yup, that's all!
Tithing is one way we can show our faith in God and that He will bless us for what we give Him (Malachi 3:10). If you haven't started yet, this might be a good time to begin. God loves it when we pay Him respect and in turn, He blesses us accordingly.
