Isn’t it like this with many things? The Parkenson Law states that every space is always filled:
– a task always takes as long as we have to complete it
– however much storage we have – we fill it
– no matter how much money we make, we spend it (and forget about emergencies, long-term savings and giving). We just created an extra bank account for each of these and transfer money in the beginning of the month (10% of income for each).
However I read that “officially” in scripture we are not ask to give 10% but 24% (if you add up everything from Genesis-Deuteronomy).
Seth, how would you combine a great budget with Kingdom-giving (as in accounting for every dollar you make but still giving when you want or feel lead to)? Where (which budget) do you take that money from?
