We Cannot Out-Give God

By   •   December 29   •   Topics:


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.

    Forgive me Lord … for I fail You every day in my mind, words and actions. Please pray for me to stop smoking cigarettes. Please pray for me because the devil is using an evil person against me at work. He is blaming me because he doesn’t do his work. Please pray for me a better job, even though I don’t deserve anything. Please God it’s not my fault this so called man is lazy.

    God’s Word is true on this matter. He has set the formula. It’s not magic, it’s miraculous. God owns EVERYTHING we have what’s good and for our needs and benefit. He calls upon us to be faithful stewards and return to Him a portion of what He owns to glorify Him and reach others for Christ. It’s real and it works. We don’t have to understand everything about it, just TRUST GOD.

    If I gave all my income to God as an expression of my thanks to him … it would not be enough. He wants more of our attention, worship and praise. Which He so richly deserves. Give all things to Him gladly, with a happy heart. For He cares mostly about how you give, not how much.
