7. Giving Financially
This is important not because the Church needs the money, but because it commits a person to live a life where money is not the dominant value.
The idea of 5% of your income for the parish, and 5% for other charitable causes is a good target for the longer term.
To get your giving up to the tithing level or beyond, the easiest way for younger people is to give half of your pay rises away until you reach a higher level of giving.
Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have. Hebrews 13:5
