I have it set up so that each month an amount of money comes out of my checking account and goes directly into my investment account. I do this so that I don't have to think about it - I can't not do it (well, I could transfer the money back I guess).
I think it would also be a good idea to have the same kind of situation for tithing. Over the last several months I have accumlated opinions from different sources about this. Now I want your opinions.
This situation could take several forms. 1) You could set up an automatic bill paying service to issue a payment to your church. 2) Your church could offer a "direct draft" kind of thing like my electric company does so I don't have to write a check. I think I remember that Focus on the Family now has this option available.
What do you think? Scriptural? Smart? Evil?
