Verse of the Day: Proverbs 11:24
One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
When it comes to our finances God’s way differs from man’s way. The worldly way of thinking when it comes to money is to make it, spend it on yourself or to hold on to it. God’s way is to tithe, to be generous to God’s work and to give liberally to the poor. Everything we have comes from God and we are merely managers of it. How we spend God’s money makes a difference. You can save all your money here on earth but we all know you can’t take it with you. The more you give for God’s purposes, the more God gives to you and the more God blesses you. True wealth is measured by what’s in your heart not by what’s in your wallet and by the treasures you have stored up in heaven.
Heavenly Father, thank You for all the blessing You pour down on me. Help me to be more like You by being generous to those in need. Lord, I know that no matter how much I give, You will always supply my needs, so help me to be a cheerful giver. Amen
