Investing in Heaven's Bank
In the Bible it says that God owns the cattle on a 1000
hills. That sure is a lot of beef. Picture those cows in terms
of finances. Most of us could use some cash to pay off our debts
and to take a vacation.
When we put money aside in a bank it draws interest. We should
think about making our deposits into "Heavens Bank."
It would be like selling a cow and getting top dollar for it.
If you ever go to a butcher, you will know the price a side of
beef, much less the cost of a whole cow.
When we give into the kingdom of God with our tithes and offerings,
the Bible says we can expect a return for our money. You might
want to ask what is in your storehouse?
After faithfully giving of your tithes and offerings, you should
remind the Lord of His Word. He said to prove Him!
... prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will
not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing,
that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:10
God is Jehovah Jireh, which means our Provider. He is the best
financial advisor that we will ever have. He tells us to give
and promises that blessings will be given back.
It is time to sow seeds and reap a harvest. Jesus said He would
provide all of our needs according to His riches in glory. We
must look to our Father in heaven and be responsible with the
money He provides. We cannot rely on Social Security or any other
world system. We need to save and invest. But remember too, we
are not to rob God in our tithes and offerings. Giving to God
is the way you will have money in heaven's bank.
I am going to think more about the cattle on a thousand hills
and invest more into heaven's bank. If you haven't thought much
about it, then open up a new account today. It is never too late!
