Using Wisdom In My Finances
|In this video, Pastor Harris shares his testimony from his college experience where he put his last $20 in the offering and THE NEXT DAY he was blessed with a contracted job and thousands of dollars in reimbursement for his four years of college. Because he was not selfish and gave his all to God, God then blessed him with finances that he wasn’t looking for. 2 Corinthians 9:7 says, “…God loveth a cheerful giver.” 1 Timothy 6:10 says, “For the love of money is the root of all evil…” When it comes to giving, God doesn’t want us to love money because it could lead us into temptation and many foolish and hurtful lusts (1 Tim. 6:9). |
Instead, we should be content with having food and our other necessities (1 Tim. 6:8) while being confident like the psalmist in Psalms 37:25 who said, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.” Using wisdom in your finances simply looks like putting God and others before you and allowing God to bless you with what you need.
