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.

    I have commited to God a certain Amount every week. The money goes either to St. Bernard’s in Florida, St. Ann’s in Marietta, GA. or the Church of Incarnation, Charlottesville VA..I am living proof that you cannot outgive Jesus. It seems like nobody wants to try.

    Amen! God loves a cheerful giver.

    Give gladly. with a happy heart . God is less concerned about the percentage than he is with the spirit in which you give. God loves a happy giver. You cannot out-give God.

    Was saved in 1984. We were able to visit the Billy Graham Library this past December (before Christmas). What a blessing it was . To see the house where he grew up, the beautiful gardens (yes, even in December) and the graves of Ruth Bell Graham And George Beverly Shay. I want to go back. I can not say enough about how the Lord is so Good. Praise the Lord.
