The Checkbook Doesn't Lie Sep 23 2007
"Now this I say, he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully." - 2 Corinthians 9:6
I had an interesting conversation with a friend who is an atheist. He had visited our church and heard statistics on the high number of families who give nothing to the Lord's work each year. The basic minimum in faithful giving, according to the Bible, is ten percent, or a tithe. My friend said to me, "I was shocked. I thought if you people really believe this stuff about God, heaven, and hell, and the importance of spreading the message, you'd want to give more than ten percent. 'Cause what could be more important than that?"
Jesus would agree, for He clearly said, "Where your treasure is, there your heart will be." In short, where you spend your money reveals the priorities of your heart. So, what does your checkbook say about your priorities? The checkbook doesn't lie. To all you folks who profess to be Christians, what does your checkbook say about your faith in God? Do you really believe what you profess to believe?
