    I have my own Biz. and due to when I pay myself I tithe monthly. I know some do every week. I know an elderly lady who does it yearly, but before you bash her, it is well in the 7 digits! (nice):)

    We do it after we get paid - sometimes it's every week, sometimes every other depending on how the pay stubs work out.

    We lay aside on the first day of the week.

    My primary job pays monthly so we tithe monthly. I have to do this because I am not very good with money and it is easier for me just to sit down at the end of the month and figure it all out.

    My wife and I also follow (more or less) the Festival Tithe.

    I tithe weekly. I budget for the year and tithe every Lord's day.

    Some think this is ideal, but,for some of us due to our occupations, must use alternate plans.:2cents:

    :handshake: I agree! I feel what is important is that we ,set aside gifts to God through the local Church. Having served on Vestry 2 times I can say it comes out the same, that is when I was on a board looking at the Churches books, we dealt mostly with Monthly and Yearly items in regard to our budget.:2cents:

    Whenever we get paid and put it in the bank, we do it.

    As soon as I get paid monthly we write the cheque. Then it is done, and we cannot forget, or spend it by mistake !?!

    When do you tithe?

    Whenever the tax-locusts have finished eating my wages. ;)

    I do not tithe - I give freewill offerings as the Lord leads and provides.

    26x each year (although my wife and I work for different organizations, each one is on the same two week pay cycle).

    Perhaps this should be a new thread, but I have often heard about people who give 'as the Lord leads'. Could you elaborate on how this works? How exactly does the Lord lead? Is it some kind of movement in the heart? Is it when your church expresses a specific need?

    Yes and other ways - we help individuals, missionaries, ministries as they need through designated giving, etc...the Lord has been faithful to direct and enable us in these matters as we trust in Him.

    Tithing removes this difficulty; we give God His 10% and so what we do with the rest is our business - no one else has a right to dictate how we spend our money after we render to God His tax. Tithing, therefore, removes guilt-manipulation.

    I would rather have an objective standard to go by, rather than trust in my own discernment.

    O.K. my 2 cents - tithes? Freewill offerings are the order of the day. I couldn't poll. I'll have to get some Dems to say I was dis-enfranchised. :worms: :popcorn:

    True discernment is objective - based on the Word and Spirit of Truth. :)
