Piers Morgan interviewed Kim Kardashian last night on CNN and asked her point-blank if she was aware of her financial worth. Her response was both candid and very interesting – “Whatever it is, I give 10% away to the church and that’s what I was taught. Every year, absolutely.”
When he turned the question to her sister, Kourtney, she responded, “I’m going to now. I was taught that too but I forgot about it.”
Many of us within the church fall into one of these two categories: we either give generously because, as we understand it, that’s what we’re supposed to do, OR we’re aware of the need, but typically don’t follow through.
I love Kourtney’s response though. I’m not sure whether it’s because she was on national television, or she genuinely forgot, but I’ll bet someone reports whether or not she began giving as a result of this show.
What do you think?
Are you a Kim or a Kourtney?
DISCLAIMER: I have no idea whether or not either of these girls are believers or not. I’m not holding either of them up as Christian role-models, but I found this aspect of their interview interesting, and perhaps, a little challenging.
