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.

Does God need my money? Billy Graham answers questions on giving.

Prayer for the day

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

    The tithe belongs to God. If you really want to be blessed then give above the tithe to missions/evangelism so you can help fulfill the last commission that Jesus comanded his followers to do.

    You are so right! I have seen this happen in my own life so many times – still, I have forgotten it and am struggling economically again. During times when I have been in need of money, the Lord has always provided! I hereby pledge one tenth of my income to the Lord.
