How much should I pledge?
That is entirely up to you. Jesus asked for total giving, sacrificial giving—he gave up everything, even his life. Thankfully, the Church does not require such sacrifice. You keep what you need. But you are asked to give God a gift from your heart, a symbol of your close relationship with God.
In ancient Israel, the tithe, 10 percent of a person’s income, was the rule. It is still the standard of the Anglican Catholic Church. Because of taxes and other charitable giving. Decide what is right for you slowly and steadily. If this is your first pledge, pick an amount that you can comfortably meet. Get some successful experience making and fulfilling a pledge. Note what portion or percentage of your income your pledge represents. If you already pledge, try to increase that percentage.
Remember, To embrace a life of generosity and enthusiastically commit to supporting the ministry of our church through our gifts of time, talent and treasure.
