My brokerage account is part of the Smith Family Trust. The trust is made up of tranches directed to my children and grand children plus 10% to Tithe. I see the tranches in the trust as talents (as in the parable of the talents), not mine to spend but mine to manage as a trustee. Some investments may increase and some may go the way of BTU and RIG. The trust is run like a business; expenses come out above the bottom line.
Only when the money goes into my checking account for me to spend is it an increase. When I die 10% goes to tithe.
