Give first. Save second.
Live on the rest.

A healthy, biblical model for managing money would be to give our first 10% to God as an act of worship and obedience, save the second 10% that builds wealth for the future and then live on the remaining 80% which teaches us contentment.

Give First

Giving first honors God. If there is anything that you want God to bless in your life, then you put him first in it. Marriage? Put God first. Singleness? Put God first. Do you want God to bless your finances? Put Him first. Anytime you receive income you give first to God to acknowledge where it came from. The most common word in the Bible for giving is the word tithe. Tithe simply means a tenth or 10 percent. Giving the first 10% of our income to God is a spiritual discipline that reminds us that everything we have ultimately comes from Him. Consider taking the 90-Day Tithe Challenge! Commit to tithing for 90 days and if at the end of that time you do not have a greater sense of joy, contentment, and blessing, we will simply return the entire amount.

Save Second

Saving second builds wealth. There is nothing wrong, or sinful about acquiring wealth. Many people misquote the Bible saying that “money is the root of all evil”. Actually, that IS NOT what the Bible says. 1 Timothy 6:10 says, “For the LOVE OF MONEY is the root of all kinds of evil.” We are to love people and use money. If you love money, then you tend to use people (giving first protects against this). Saving second prepares you for the future and allows operating from a position of strength in providing for you, your family as well as others in need.

Live on The Rest

Living on the rest teaches contentment. 1 Timothy 6:6 says, “…godliness with contentment is great gain”. Many people think that “more money” would be the great gain. However, the secret to financial freedom is not earning more, but wanting less. Giving first and saving second teaches us contentment and provides financial peace instead of stress.

Ways To Give


A giving principle that teaches us to give the first 10% of our income to the local church – is one of the most tangible ways we worship God. It declares that He is first in our lives and opens our hearts to His plan.
