GIVE... write the first check to God (10%)
· Demonstrate your trust in God by giving Him back your first!
· Percentage giving back to God through the church is known as a tithe (10% gross)
· When you give to God through the church first, God has a way of multiplying your finances and keeping your heart clear of unnecessary weight.
· First 10% (tithe), then above the 10% (offering)
SAVE... write the next to you (10%)
· Put a percentage aside for emergencies and future.
· Dave Ramsey suggests $1,000 emergency fund
· Create margin by saying no to something, so you can say yes!
LIVE... live on the rest

· Tell your money where to go or it will tell you where to go
· Budget (see the budget calculator tool below)
Imagine if we all did this, we could multiply the Kingdom for His glory!
