I would like to know how to get my husband to stop spending.  He buys things we don't need & hides them so that when I do see them he can say "I've had that for a long time"  He knows we owe a CC & I like everything paid in full every month but it doesn't stop him.  We do tithe & support children & missionaries, but we could do more if he would just think "Is this necessary" before he buys.  Can you HELP??

I know that the bible speaks of tithing and that God does can do miraculous things for you in provision. However I am compelled to give my money towards mission projects instead (which I feel are God worthy) since it brings the word of God to people who have never heard, whereas the church doesn't get out as much. How can I manage enough money to successfully thithe yet still give to missions? Can I only give to missions?

I have been faithful in tithing for a year now. My husband and I have seperate checking accounts because he is a spender and this was the best solution we found for us. We view finances completely different because he likes to spend money. I tithe on what I make because I am responsible for what I do. Is my tithing on my income alone being obedient to God? Any suggestions? My husband is a believer but he just doesn't seem to feel the need to be obedient in this area. He seems to think he can substitute serving in the church for giving financially.

Such a blessing to hear Ellie sharing the truth about tithing-- the commandment to do so --as well as the blessing of being obedient to the WORD and following through as JESUS said-= A BIG THANKS  --Sometimes when I wonder if something is of GOD I remember the words of JESUS....HE said those who are not against me are for me.....Something to think about!!!
