When you think about giving, are you focused on the minimum or the maximum? It is easy to think giving is based on some exact number that will satisfy our obligation, yet true generosity comes joyfully out of a heart filled with love.
By developing a giving plan, you can reconcile the natural tension between meeting a minimum obligation and the response to a generous God who has given us everything.
The Compass Catholic blog has more on developing a giving plan.

A large part of mastering your money is based on giving it place in your life it deserves, and it’s not first place. Everything in our culture influences us to think that more is better, especially when it comes to money. Yes, more money may ease the financial pressure for a while, but it will never provide lasting happiness.
Master your money by learning to be a good steward of God’s many blessings, including the way you give, save and spend.
