The short answer - 10% of your gross income. But here's why…

The Bible tells us we should set aside a portion of what we earn to give back to God as a way of showing our trust in Him. This is called a tithe - which literally means 1/10th. This principal is first defined in the Old Testament in Deuteronomy 14:22 - "You must set aside a tithe of your crops - one-tenth of all the crops you harvest each year. Bring this tithe to the designated place of worship…"

Later in the Bible in Malachi, God even takes it one step farther and says "Test me in this…and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." God knows how much we trust in our money to provide for us. But he wants to protect us and keep us in check and make sure that we still trust in him to provide for us more than we trust in money.

Use this calculator to help figure out the amount you should give:

There are lots of reasons to automate your giving. No more checkbooks and envelopes to deal with on Sunday mornings. No more feeling guilty if you forget (don't worry, we've all done it!). And it is an easy way to keep yourself disciplined just like you do with all of your other automated payments each month. What are you waiting for?! Click here and set up a recurring gift!
Every time you give, you are part of something so much bigger than just giving money! Check out how each dollar is spent at OneLife.

The Generosity Challenge is a 60-Day "test" to see if God will really take care of us when we tithe. The rules are simple: Give God your FIRST 10% for 60 days and if He doesn't provide every one of your needs in those 60 days, OneLife will give every penny back. No questions asked!
