The Journey of a Generous Business Leader - Part III

In this series, we’re discussing five phases many leaders experience on their journey to becoming generous. The third phase is the rule follower, or the “Compulsory” giver.

Early on in our spiritual journey, Kathy and I were “transactional” givers. We gave 2-3% of our income to the church based on what we felt we received in entertainment. 

Then God revealed to me His Old Testament commands on tithing. When I realized we were robbing God, I told Kathy that the Bible required that we give at least 10% of our income to the church. 

Kathy was leaving her full-time nursing position at the time. It was a scary step of faith, but we started tithing 10% and God was faithful.

Deuteronomy 14:22 says, “Be sure to set aside a tenth of all that your fields produce each year.”
