Me and my husband are strong believers that Christians should tithe 10% of their monthly income. I am really not trying to complain or have a "pitty party" just wanting some real good Christian oppinions as I am unsure what to do...I have been praying about this issue as well. We have been tithing every month and seem to never have any money left over for other things we need...We literally have $2 in the bank account at the end of every month...we are in a possition where we NEED a car soon as our car seems to stop running at times and is turning into a junker... we really wish to save money for a car and not have credit. We also need to get my husbands teeth fixed asap as one needs to be pulled and he has 2 cavities that need to be filled. we have a list of "needs" and "wants." Do we still tithe even tho we have nothing left for things that are rather important? Or do we tithe and hope it works out? Also, I am in the process of trying to go back to work part time. I really want to be a stay at home mom but it seems impossible with bills and things that are important. I know God WILL always provide I am just unsure as to what to do in my situation. Any advice? Anyone in the same boat?
