The New Testament nowhere designates a percentage of income a person should set aside, but only says it is to be “in keeping with income” (1 Corinthians 16:2).

The New Testament talks about the importance and benefits of giving. We are to give as we are able. Sometimes that means giving more than 10 percent -- as is specified in the Old Testament -- sometimes that may mean giving less.

It all depends on the ability of the Christian and the needs of the church. Every Christian should diligently pray and seek God’s wisdom in the matter of participating in tithing and/or how much to give (James 1:5).

In his new book, Right on the Money: Financial Advice for Tough Times, Pat Robertson writes that it starts by giving and having God's blessing on your finances.
