Pastor Commentary:

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Matt 6:21) There is no mincing words or beating around the bush when it comes to this point: where you put your money demonstrates where you’ve put your heart. Are you sowing into your local church? Are you sowing into the people around you by generously blessing them? Proverbs 19:17 says that when we have pity on the poor, we are actually lending not to another human being, but to the Lord Himself. When God knows He can get money through us, He will get it to us. The Bible never says that money itself is evil, but rather that the love of money is evil (1 Tim 6:10). In fact, God wants us to spend so much time focusing on the things of Heaven that we don’t even have time to lust after money! We must be willing to give freely of everything we have to our God – because He has already freely given His Most Valuable Possession to us. Are you investing in the Kingdom of God? Would your bank account statement prove it?

Prayer:

“Father, help me to honor You with my finances, and help me to trust fully in Your Provision. You are Jehovah Jireh, the Lord Who Provides! There is no need too great for You! Sow into me so that I can sow into Your church in Jesus’ Mighty Name!”
