    If you stay at home and your husband is not a church goer, how do you tithe? I only have twenty dollars of mad money per week. Suggestions?

    My wife was a saved member of our chruch for years before I accepted the Lord as my personal savior.

    Durring that time she only gave to the chruch what I said she could give. Our Pastor's belief is that in these cased the wife needs to do what the husband wants done, even if that means giving nothing. Of course now that I am also a saved member we are giving much much more to the church, missions, and everything else.

    Speak with your husband about this. Share why you want to give. This is a great testimony. If there is no consensus, then I would probably hold back a bit and give what you can.

    Dear Peaches-Ohio

    I have asked similar questions for years and have finally come to the conclusion that tithing is an O.T. practice -the practice of religion. As Christ's we are called not to give 10% but to give all of ourselves. So we are called into a kingdom of giving. How and how much we give depends upon our relationship to Him and His Spirit. I offer 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 for reflection.

    Tithe what is in your hand. If you force your husband into doing something he doesn't want to do you will not only usurp his authority as your husband but you may also bring him to sin and possibly cause him to never come to the Lord. This has been a hard thing for me. I often felt that it was okay to rebell against a husband if I thought that what he was doing was wrong (not myself but a close friend of mine). So I could tell her, you do what God's word says and ignore your husband, but
    God convicted me that this was wrong and that she should submit to him even in his error so that he would see her as a woman of respect to both him and God.

    Submit to him in the little things and he will recognize it and "by your chaste and respectful behavior, he will be won without a word."
