Reporter: CRAIG CAYLOR

HAS BEEN AROUND CARS ALL HIS

LIFE.

AS A BOY, HE HUNG OUT WITH

HIS DAD IN THE FAMILY'S AUTO

BODY SHOP.

SO IN 1999, HE WENT TO WORK

DOING DAMAGE APPRAISALS FOR

AN INSURANCE COMPANY.

WHAT WE DID WAS GO OUT

INTO THE FIELD, AND DO THE

APPRAISAL ON IT AND REPORT

BACK TO THE INSURANCE

COMPANY.

Reporter: BUT CRAIG WAS

STRUGGLING FINANCIALLY.

SO A FEW YEARS AGO, HE TOOK

THE BIGGEST RISK OF HIS LIFE

AND STARTED HIS OWN BUSINESS

AS AN INDEPENDENT

APPRAISER.

VERY SCARY.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHEN THE NEXT

PAYCHECK IS COMING, AND HOW

MUCH IT IS GOING TO BE.

YOU HAVE TO GET OUT AND WORK

HARD AND DO WHAT YOUR

COSTUMERS WANT.

Reporter: THAT SAME

YEAR, HE DECIDED TO GET

SERIOUS ABOUT A BIBLICAL

PRINCIPLE, TITHING.

I WAS LEARNING ABOUT

TITHING, FROM "THE 700

CLUB," THAT IT IS ONE OF

GOD'S BASIC AND FUNDAMENTAL

LAWS.

IF YOU GIVE, IT SHALL BE

GIVEN TO YOU, A GOOD

MEASURE, PRESSED DOWN,

SHAKEN TOGETHER, RUNNING

OVER.

YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD.

THE MORE YOU GIVE, THE MORE

IT COMES BACK TO YOU.

Reporter: SO CRAIG

DECIDED TO TEST GOD AND

GIVE.

LOOKING BACK ON HIS

FINANCIAL RECORDS, HE

DISCOVERED AN INTERESTING

PATTERN.

I NOTICED THE FIRST YEAR,

AFTER I STARTED TO GIVE, AND

FAITHFULLY GIVE, I NOTICED

MY INCOME INCREASED 25% THAT

FIRST YEAR.

AND THE YEAR AFTER THAT, I

DECIDED TO GIVE MORE AND

TEST THEM EVEN MORE.

THAT YEAR IT WENT UP ANOTHER

35%.

Reporter: CRAIG, AGAIN,

INCREASED HIS GIVING.

I WAS THINKING, THIS DID

COULD NOT BE A COINCIDENCE.

AFTER I JOINED THE 1,000

CLUB, I NOTICED A 50%

INCREASE.

I TOOK A BIG LEAP OF FAITH,

AND GOD BLESSED ME.

Reporter: CRAIG TRACKED

HIS INCOME, AND AS YOU CAN

SEE, THE LAW OF RES

RECIPROCITY HAS BEEN

WORKING.

TODAY CRAIG ENJOYS SPENDING

TIME WITH HIS FAMILY AS HIS

BUSINESS CONTINUES TO GROW.

THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE.

IT IS ALL RIGHT THERE.

TRY IT.

TRUST GOD.

LEARN WHAT HIS LAWS ARE AND

OBEY HIS LAWS AND HE WILL

BLESS YOU.
