A "Sacrificial Gift"

How can I determine how much is a "sacrificial gift"? One way to determine a sacrificial gift is by relating your gift to your income. Some people reach into their pocket to see what is left from Saturday night. As a good steward, you are being asked to consider donating one hour (2 1/2%) or two hours (5%) of your weekly income. As circumstances change, increase gradually toward the ideal of 10% to your church and other charities. Some will be able to do more while others may need to do less. There are two important points: first is that your gift be a sacrifice and second is that you relate your donation to your income. If your income is $1000/week or $4333/month then a weekly sacrificial gift would be 2.5% = $25, 10% = $50 and 10% = $100.
