The post about "what does your pastor know" got me thinking about this. We are a "needy" family at the moment, but have not always been so. My dh lost his job 18 months ago and has not been able to find work. I had been a stay at home mom and am looking for work also. We are staying afloat by the Grace of God and some very kind folks. If I get a job for $7.00/hour that does not come close to covering our expenses should I still give 10% to the church?
