When You Give, You Get Even More

Proverbs 11 24

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.

Rich in Good Deeds

1 Timothy 6 18

Verse of the Day:  1 Timothy 6:18

Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

In this world money comes and money goes. If you want to be truly rich in life you must do good deeds and cheerfully share what you have with those in need. Build your treasure in heaven by doing the work of the Lord. Check on the elderly and sick, feed the hungry, give to the poor and do what you can to help a hurting world know God. These kinds of things make a real difference and these are the things that enrich your life. Give, serve, love, these are the sacrifices that please God.
