An interesting question.  What would you say?

This morning Steve Diaz phoned with the question, which will be implied in his Sunday sermon.

If a family of four annually earns $100,000 and another $24,000, and both tithe, understood to mean giving 10% of your income to the church … is it apples to apples?

Some say it doesn’t matter.  Tithe is tithe.  Give.  God will make it all work out for you in return.

Here’s an earlier post about a gallon of milk.
