Your giving in this life will have an impact
on your experiences in eternity.
Read the following verses. Think
and pray about the verse that applies the most to your life.
Not that I am looking for a gift, but I am looking for what may be
credited to your account.
When you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame,
the blind, and you will be blessed. Although they cannot repay you,
you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.
(Jesus said) “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust
do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For
where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
(Jesus said) “Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out,
a treasure in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief
comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there
your heart will be also.”
Use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it
is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
If you ask people what they can “afford to give” to the Lord’s work
for a special project, they will usually come up with a small amount
that they feel they can handle. But if you ask people to determine
what God is prompting their heart to give, there is no telling what
God will lead them and provide for them to do.
God will often speak a financial amount into a person’s heart that
is far bigger than their mind can at first grasp. It often takes the
mind time to catch up to the amount that God has spoken into a
person’s heart to give.
Manager Donates 6 Trucks To Camp
working for a Christian camp, I received an unusual phone call. The man
on the phone said, “You don’t know me, but I was wondering if your camp
could use 6 pickup trucks if my company donated them to you?” I told him
“we sure could,” but I was wondering why he thought of us. He told me he
was a Christian and his job was to manage his company’s fleet of pickup
trucks. Each truck was to be used for 3 years and then new trucks would
be purchased. He was told by his boss that he could get rid of the old
trucks any way he wanted. He said, “I know that God has placed me in
this position so I can be a blessing to ministries that are reaching
people for Christ.” Has God blessed you with the control of any
resources that could be given to reach people for Christ?
