How Not to Lose the Little You Have

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


Reporter: STEVE GLICK

AND HIS WIFE LOVE TO GIVE

GENEROUSLY.

BUT YEARS AGO, STEVE HAD A

REPUTATION OF BEING TIGHT

WITH HIS MONEY.

MY FRIENDS WOULD JOKE

AROUND WITH ME, AND THEY

WOULD SAY, WHEN STEVE WOULD

OPEN HIS WALLET UP, GEORGE

WOULD BE WIPING HIS EYES

BECAUSE HE'S NOT USED TO

SEEING THE DAYLIGHT.

Reporter: HIS IDEAS

ABOUT MONEY STARTED TO

CHANGE WHEN HE BECAME A

CHRISTIAN AND HEARD ABOUT

TITHING AT CHURCH.

I STARTED TO BE TAUGHT

ABOUT TITHING AND OFFERINGS

AND THINGS LIKE THAT AND

BEING A CHEERFUL GIVER.

AND I WAS THINKING, HOW CAN

YOU GIVE AND BE CHEERFUL AT

THE SAME TIME?

I THOUGHT IT WAS MY MONEY.

I DIDN'T REALIZE THE CONCEPT

EVERYTHING IS GOD'S.

Reporter: AT THE TIME,

STEVE MADE A MODEST LIVING

AND STARTED GIVING AT

CHURCH.

WHEN HE NEXT PAYDAY CAME

AROUND, HE NOTICED THERE WAS

A LITTLE EXTRA.

WE WERE SALARY, SO WE GOT

THE SAME AMOUNT EVERY WEEK.

I LOOKED AT MY PAYCHECK, AND

I SAW $30 MORE ON IT.

IT DOESN'T SOUND LIKE MUCH,

BUT THAT'S HOW GOD WORKS.

HE SHOWS US IN LITTLE WAYS

THAT HE IS WITH US, HE HEARS

US, AND HE SEES WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

Reporter: AFTER THAT,

STEVE STARTED GIVING 10% OF

HIS INCOME CONSISTENTLY TO

HIS CHURCH.

HE SAYS WHEN HE DID, DOORS

OPENED UP FOR BETTER-PAYING

JOBS.

I INSTANTLY STARTEDpú

MAKING MORE THAN I WASú?ú

MAKING AT THE OTHER PLACE.

ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF

LATER, GOD OPENED UP ANOTHER

DOOR.

I'VE BEEN THERE FOR THE PAST

17 YEARS.

AND IT HAS BEEN ONE BLESSING

AFTER ANOTHER.

GOD IS TELLING ME, IF YOU

GIVE FROM YOUR HEART, I'M

GOING TO BLESS YOU.

MORE AND MORE I'M ABLE TO

EXPAND ON THAT, FROM THE

TITHE TO OFFERINGS, B AND

PARTNERING WITH PLACES LIKE

CBN AND WATCHING GOD MOVE.

Reporter: HE SEES A

CONNECTION BETWEEN HIS

OBEDIENCE TO GIVE AND GOD'S

BLESSINGS.

I CAN'T AFFORD NOT TO

GIVE.

IT IS THAT IMPORTANT IN MY

LIFE.

I GIVE, KNOWING THAT HE IS

GOING TO TAKE CARE OF ALL OF

MY NEEDS, WHICH HE DOES.

IT'S A PROMISE.

IT IS PRIVILEGE TO BE ABLE

TO GIVE BACK HOW HE HAS

BLESSED ME, AND HE HAS

BLESSED ME TREMENDOUSLY.
