Pray. Seek God individually, and if you are married, pray as a couple. Ask God to place an amount on your heart to invest in Here For Good Project.
Ask yourself what amount of money you desire to give and/or you believe God could provide for you to give.
Next, take a few days to think about the amount at which you have arrived. Ask yourself these questions: Am I joyful about giving this amount? Is my gift sacrificial? Am I demonstrating my faith in God with this amount? Am I able to give this amount with worship of God and thankfulness for His provision as my motives?
If you can answer “yes” to the questions in Step 3, then you can feel comfortable with your gift amount.
If you cannot answer “yes” to the questions in Step 3, then go back through Steps 1 and 2 until you arrive at an amount with which you feel comfortable.
If you are single, you’re done. You are ready to make your pledge. If you are married, move on to Steps 5 and 6.
Get together with your spouse and share your gift amounts. If you each have the same amount, congratulations. That’s rare.
If you came up with different amounts, repeat Steps 1-3 and work toward finding agreement.
Once you and your spouse are in agreement, then pray and thank God. You are ready to make your pledge.
If you and your spouse are unable to reach agreement on a gift amount in a reasonable amount of time, then choose the lower number as your gift.
