The Key To Economic Security

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." – Luke 6:38

Today, everybody seems to have their own ideas about how to make the dollar stretch.

I heard a story some time ago about a woman who had a very unique answer to the problem of economic security. At her funeral, the mourners were told that during her lifetime she had four husbands, and apparently she had planned all four. First, she married a millionaire. Then she married a Hollywood producer. Third, she married a life-insurance salesman. And finally, her last husband was a mortician. Her plan worked out well—one for the money; two for the show; three to get ready; and four to go!

If you want to achieve financial security, you don't have to marry a millionaire. I've got a better idea for you. It's simply this: Pray that God will give you the health, strength, and opportunity to earn some money. Then, once you've earned this money—however small that first paycheck is—take ten percent of it and drop it into the offering plate of your church.

Then watch God bless.
