Are You Trusting Enough to Give?

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Matthew 6:31-33

Ponder This

After our wedding, Joyce and I had about fifty or sixty dollars to begin our marriage. We took our honeymoon on that. We didn’t have anything. But we had each other and we had Jesus. I worked My way through school in all manner of jobs—packing fruit, selling automobiles, doing construction, working as a butcher, working in a department store. Even in that difficult time, when our finances were stretched thin, we gave beyond the tithe.

And I can tell you that through these years we’ve tithed, we’ve seen this verse to be true. God enabled us to give away amounts of money that I thought we’d never be able to give. He has proven to us that His Word is true. “Try me,” God says in Malachi 3:10. Put me to the test. See if it’s true. Would you trust God with your finances that way? Would you give generously to sit back and watch His provision?

  • When have you given generously for God’s glory even if it didn’t make sense on paper? What happened?
  • What are some fears that arise when you consider tithing generously?

Pray about where you could give generously for God’s glory.
