When money’s tight, we sometimes want to hold onto it even tighter. That’s what Steve did… but it never seemed to help his finances. He decided to try something different to get different results. And it worked! See what Steve did to ... Read Transcript


STEVE AND HIS WIFE LOVED

TO GIVE

GENEROUSLY BUT HE WAS KNOWN

AS BEING

TIGHT WITH HIS MONEY.

MY FRIENDS WOULD JOKE,

WHEN STEVE

WOULD OPEN HIS WALLET, THEY

WOULD

LAUGH BECAUSE HE WOULDN'T SEE

DAYLIGHT.

HE STARTED TO LEARN ABOUT

TITHING.

I STARTED TO LEARN ABOUT

TITHING

AND BEING A CHEERFUL GIVER.

I WOULD THINK HOW CAN YOU BE

CHEERFUL

AND A GIVER AT THE SAME TIME.

I DIDN'T HAVE THE CONCEPT

THAT

EVERYTHING WAS GOD.

THEN HE BEGAN TO GIVE

OCCASIONALLY

TO CHURCH AND THEN HE GAVE

ANOTHER

OFFERING AND WHEN HIS NEXT

PAY DAY

CAME HE KNEW HE HAD SOMETHING

EXTRA.

WHEN I LOOKED AT MY

PAYCHECK, I SAW

$30 MORE ON IT AND IT DOESN'T

SOUND

LIKE MUCH, BUT IT SHOWS THAT

HE SEE'S

WHAT WE ARE DOING.

AFTER THEN, HE GAVE TO

GIVE 10

PERCENT TO THE CHURCH.

THEN I WAS MAKING MORE

THAN WHAT I

WAS MAKING AT THE OTHER PLACE.

ABOUT A YEAR 1/2 LATER GOD

OPENED UP

ANOTHER DOOR.

I HAD BEEN THERE FOR LAST 17

YEARS.

IT'S BEEN ONE BLESSING AFTER

ANOTHER.

STEVE ALSO BEGAN TO GIVE

TO OTHER

MINISTRIES LIKE CBN.

I'M ABLE TO EXPAND

OFFERINGS TO

LIKE CBN.

HE REALIZES WHAT IT IS TO

GIVE.

I CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO GIVE.

IT'S THAT IMPORTANT IN MY

LIFE AND I

GIVE KNOWING THAT HE'S GOING

TO TAKE

CARE OF ALL OF MY NEEDS WHICH

HE DOES.

IT'S A PROMISE.

IT'S PRIVILEGE REALLY TO BE

ABLE TO

GIVE BACK HOW HE'S BLESSED ME

AND HE

HAS BLESSED ME TREMENDOUSLY.
