We Can’t Out-Give God

We are to be stewards of our money. When it is invested and shared for the glory of God, it can be a boon and a blessing. I know a businessman in Detroit, Michigan, who made a promise to God that he would tithe his entire income to the work of the Lord. He said his business had tripled, and that God had more than fulfilled His end of the bargain.

Some time ago I heard from a laborer in the San Joaquin Valley of California who said that he and his wife agreed to give one tenth of their income to the Lord. At the time they made their decision, he was able to get work only about seven months of the year. Now he says he has steady work, and is earning nearly twice what he was before. You cannot get around it; the Scripture promises material and spiritual benefits to the man who gives to God.

You cannot out-give God. I challenge you to try it and see.

Prayer for the day

Forgive me, Lord, for the times I have wanted to keep that which is rightfully Yours.

    A few years ago I evangelized to the American nation, taught the word at conferences profeticas.E an inspiration to our generation, ministry, and also the future, a man who has a brilliant history as an example for our lives. I believe that America will overcome the present and future as well as Billy Graham conquered, I pray to God that the ministers of this generation we are the least like him.
