Reflections: This verse was for the people of Israel, but it has a lot of truth for us today. If the richest people in the world used their wealth to solve the problem of extreme poverty, we would see a massive change! But while we have no control of what they do with their money, we can make a change in the way we use our wealth. I believe in the principle of tithing and offerings, and that we should give to God first, then always be generous to the poor. I believe that you can’t out give God. He is Jehovah Jireh our provider! Be intentional with your giving, make a budget and include giving to the causes that are close to your heart.
Prayers: Heavenly Father, thank you for your abundant blessings. Your word says, “To Whom much is given, much is required.” Help me always be a giver, and to give in the right places. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
