WE SHOULD BE FINANCIALLY RESPONSIBLE TO GOD:
1 COR. 16:1-3
(Luke 6:38) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
INTRODUCTION: GOD GIVES TO US FREELY AND WANTS US TO GIVE ALSO SO THAT WE WILL KNOW THE JOY THAT COMES FROM GIVING.
We are responsible to provide for our own household. God intends for all of us to do useful work to take care of ourselves. It is also our Christian duty to help those who are less fortunate than we are.
We are to give to the Lord's work so that the gospel can be preached throughout the world. God has told us that the first ten percent of what we have belongs to Him. This by no means restricts us to ten per cent. God blesses richly those who give willingly from a cheerful heart.
One of the things that I have learned over the years is that I can not out give God.
