For the believer, we should hold on to our possessions loosely, knowing that all things belong to the LORD. The practice of Tithing (giving a tenth of your earnings) has been around since Genesis chapter 14 and it became a part of God's law in Leviticus chapter 27. 2 Corinthians 9:7 also says "Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
Most likely, if you are a christian, you will find yourself in one of these three places in life in regards to giving.
First Time Giver - You're a Christian, but you've never given before. Now is the time to start, whether it's a little or a lot.
Giving Regularly - You give, but it's sporadic and inconsistent. Through the help of God, start a healthy discipline of giving the same amount regularly. Whether you start right at 10%, or work your way up.
Above and Beyond - You faithfully give 10% of every paycheck you get, but you want to do more. Maybe it's time you pray about giving above and beyond. That could be a one time, extra financial gift. It could mean bumping up to 15% of your check. Or maybe there's a specific item that you feel called to donate (a car, clothes, food, a house).
