But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. EVERY MAN ACCORDING AS HE PURPOSETH IN HIS HEART, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all Grace abound toward you; THAT YE, ALWAYS HAVING ALL SUFFICIENCY IN ALL THINGS, MAY ABOUND to every good work: 2 Corinthians 9:6- 8. Many Preachers like to use these verses to push the congregation to give more money "to the Lord" (in reality, to the local church), and in return, the Lord will bless them. The more you give, the more you get, get the picture? I won't do that, but I will tell you, this will get worse than that. To try get someone to at least give 10% of their money to the church,is like kids playing in the sandbox with a bucket and shovel building sand castles. It's milk and cookies, and it's a start. As you Grow and are able, LET'S GO FOR THE MEAT AND POTATOES OF THE WORD AND NOT STOP 'TILL WE GET IT ALL!!! Of course, this will be the toughest life you'll ever live on planet earth, but the Word says it WILL be worth it. What I'm talking about is offer the Lord not 10%of your money, but 100%, for you to do with as HE directs you. Don't offer Him 10%of your time, 2.4 hours, offer Him all 24 of them. Give Him EVERYTHING you have, family, food, finances and whatever else you can think of. Put it all in His Hands, give Him full control over everything He's given to you, at best, you're just the Steward anyway. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit like never before. Ask Him to crush the desires of the flesh and Build the Desires of the Spirit in you to the fullest possible extent of His Abilities. GO FOR THE GOLD, GO FOR EVERYTHING CHRIST HAS FOR YOU FOR TODAY. Ask Him for every Trial, Trouble, Testing, Tribulation, for Purifying, Cleansing, every bit of CHRISTLIKENESS, (which includes Blessings), that you may BE EVERYTHING He Paid For for you to Eternally, Be Blessed.
