Prepare the Way
Some people will tell you that it doesn’t make any difference whether you give or not, or that it doesn’t do any good. But don’t listen to those lies. God is keeping those records.
If you want to live your best life now, don’t hoard what God has given you. Learn to sow it in faith. Put some action behind your prayers. Do something out of the ordinary as an expression of your faith. If you are believing for a promotion at work, don’t just say, “God, I’m counting you You.” Certainly, you should pray, but do more than pray. Go out and feed the poor, or do something to get some seed in the ground that God can bless. Remember, when you give, you are preparing the way for God to meet your needs today and in the future.
