You Can’t Out-Give God
Give, and [gifts] will be given to you... For with the measure you deal out [with the measure you use when you confer benefits on others], it will be measured back to you. —Luke 6:38
Some put money or the world’s system of commerce before God. But the Bible states in Revelation 18, that if we put our trust in money, it’s going to fail. I’ve found that the way to deal with money, instead of struggling with it, is to try and out-give God...because we can’t.
The more we give away…the more we obey Him with our finances, the more He blesses us. As we do more for other people, we will find we are happier and more fulfilled than we were before.
Society tells us to invest everything in the world’s system and work all the time to make more money. But if we do, we’ll never really have anything that matters, especially joy. And we won’t be able to enjoy the money we have because we won’t be using it God’s way.
It may not make sense according to the world’s system, but God doesn’t want you to simply make money and hoard it away. God says that by giving it away, you will have more in the end. I challenge you to increase your generosity today. Trust me—you can’t out-give God.
Prayer Starter: God, I know Your plan for my finances isn’t like the world’s. But I know that when I give the way You tell me to, You will take care of me. My money is Yours and I will use it as You see fit.
