I have tried reading other threads on this topic but none seems to answer my question, which is…
I recently started tithing and i usually split the 10% into two parts, one for the church and the other for charity, sometimes all goes into charity. Aside from the 10% i still do charity out of the remaining (not quantifiable though). My Priest asked me once that he doesn’t see my tithe, and he hopes that i actually pay tithe, when i told him i do, but anonymously,and not always to him. he calmly suggested that i try to do it like others. Yes, i don’t always set out 10% for tithe,but i always do some charity, sometimes more, sometimes less, as i’m a young vincentian and often find myself dipping into my personal funds to do what has to be done.
Am i doing the tithing wrong? Do i have to give the complete 10% to the church specifically,in a ‘tithe envelop’, and have another method for charity? Please how do others do it, and what does the church say about tithes? Is tithe different from the usual church offertory? Or do I spread the 10% through the masses in each month?
My apologies if this issue has already been discussed.thanks
