Promises to count on...

Today, I mentioned some other promises we could count on from God, especially if we trust Him with money, giving, and living a generous life. Here are some that come to mind:

1) A Guaranteed Return (I mentioned this today) 2 Cor 9:6. If you sow generously, you WILL reap generously. In other words, there will be a good Kingdom harvest - lives will be changed, people will come to know Jesus, the poor will get care, etc.

2) Tame the Beast (I mentioned this today) (Matt 6:24) When you serve money, Money is the Master, you are the servant and God is a passive observer. BUT...when you serve God, He is the Master, you are the servant, and money serves YOU. It becomes a tool that you use to serve God.

These were promises I didn't have time to mention today:
  • Clear Focus. Luke 16:13
  • No More Worried. Matthew 6:25
  • Real Prosperity 2 Cor 8-9
  • Faithfulness if you test him. Malachi 3:8-12
