When we had a giving campaign years ago, I remember Shari and Jim describing how they created their budget, and the first thing they paid was their tithe to the church. That made an impression on me, and I began making the same habit. Now that I do most of my banking online, it’s even easier! I can give my minimum amount to the general budget regularly each month automatically. It is the easist and most rewarding way to give. When I can give more, I can write a check, but I always know that the base giving is taken care of before I worry about bills and other obligations. I never worry about being on vacation or missing what I pledge for any reason. The credit union does it for me! I highly recommend electronic giving! It flies through the air!
