Be Honest With God

By   •   September 8   •   Topics:

The greatest blessing of giving is not on the financial side of the ledger but on the spiritual side. You receive a sense of being honest with God. You receive a consciousness that you are in partnership with God—that you are doing something constructive—that you are working with Him to reach the world for Jesus Christ. You are also enabled to hold on to this world’s goods loosely because the eternal values are always in view. How do you give? Is it liberally and cheerfully? Or is it sparingly and grudgingly? If you have been giving God the leftovers of your substance and your life, you have been missing the true joy and blessing of Christian giving and living.

Read Billy Graham’s answer to one person who asks if giving is necessary when money is tight.

Prayer for the day

Forgive me, almighty God, for so often giving You the leftovers. In my heart I know I can never outgive You.

    I am thankful for your encouragement. I have visited your museum last year in December and I played on my violin (all Christmas songs) for 3 hours. I enjoyed seeing so many different nationalities from around the world. What a great way to get to know our Lord Jesus Christ. Blessings to all. Warm regards, Attilla Sautov

    I am proud of you man of God. Many have already fallen short from the grace of God and are teaching other things. I found that you stick to Jesus the same message you preached before, you still teach it today. I love the bitter truth in your teaching. I have to know the sweet medicine is always for the simple sickness…strong medicine is always bitter. God bless you.
