I am new to this board, and the site itself. I believe I read each posting about tithing, before I posted my query so as not to appear repetitive. It was touched on but I am interested in your opinions since there was much intelligent discussion when Cathi put out her tithing 'debate'. How much of one's income is the ten percent taken from? It seems simple, 10% of one's net. Read on and hopefully I communicated the question and the underlying reason for asking it. We moved 5 years ago and have a 3rd child who will start K in the Fall. Our school current school district after 4th grade is huge and wrought with drug/sex/violence problems. We could not continue in the public system. Home schooling was considered but the older two have learning disabilities. Two years ago we put them in a small Christian school (our youngest will start there this Sept.). Tuition is steep; add student and book fees, dress-code (not uniforms), etc. If we were to tithe 10% of my husband's net income we could not send them to Christian school unless I returned to work fulltime (part time in my field just isn't an option, and wouldn't be sufficient anyway). I apologize if it seems disjointed. My question is 10% of 'what' and does one consider any other factors.Thanks for your kind and discerning opinions in advance.
