When it comes to giving, some people stop at nothing. Like old Scrooge McDuck, they think that hording money is the key to happiness and prosperity. The Lord has a different method. “Honor the LORD from your wealth and from the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled completely, and your vats will overflow with new wine.” (Proverbs 3:9, 10) Be careful. The promise is general. Godly giving does often result in material blessing. But there are exceptions. Don’t give to invest in God. Give to honor him. And give him your very best.
