Honor the Lord with your wealth…then your barns will be filled with plenty,…

Proverbs 3:9-10

We can’t out-give God. Our family believes 100% belongs to God.

God shows us His economy at work in stories like the feeding of the 5000. He multiplies what we have so that we can give and bless others, and as we do, it is multiplied back to us again, so we can just keep going.

Financial peace doesn’t come from saving and carefully allocating your money. It comes from knowing your good Father who will see that you don’t lack any good thing.

Our family has been exceedingly poor, but we remember that time with joy. God met every need. We got to know our good Father as our provider, so now that we have money, we know we didn’t earn it or deserve it. It’s a gift from our father, multiplied to be used to be a blessing to others.
