Finances (Part 2)

Finances (Part 2) By Andrew Wommack

Today I want to share more about finances with you. In the last session, I explained that it is God’s will for you to prosper. Now I want to give you some keys about how that works. Luke 6:38 says, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall it be measured to you again.” There are many principles involved, but you can’t talk about prosperity without talking about giving.

When you talk about financial prosperity, a lot of people say, “All right, so God wants to prosper me, but I don’t have it to give.” You can see in the Bible where Jesus talked about the widow who put her last two mites into the offering. He had been watching the rich people put in huge sums of money, yet He called His disciples together and said this woman gave more than them all. He said this because they gave out of their abundance, but she gave out of her poverty. God does not evaluate the size of your gift by its monetary value but rather by the percentage of what you had to give. When a person says “I don’t have anything to give,” it’s not true. If nothing else, you could take a piece of clothing you have and give it away. Everyone has something to give, so do away with this argument that you don’t have anything to give. As a matter of fact, the time you seem to have little of anything is when your giving can be a greater percentage than any other time. A person who has ten dollars and gives away five has given a much larger gift than someone who gives a million dollars when they have billions and billions left. God set it up so every single person can give. To read the full lesson text click here.
