“Stewardship is not a classroom exercise in fractions. It is a homework assignment in total living” (Kenneth L. Wilson).
I often hear people choking on the question of “What do I have to give God?” This is the same question asked of Jesus more than once in regard to having eternal life. Jesus started by telling the people to keep the written laws. Then He brought up the issue of money, and at least one went away sorrowfully (Matthew 19:16-21) because the money had his heart.
As the rich young ruler found out, we all face a test, not by percentages, but a pass/fail test. In other words, it is all or nothing.
God, help me to walk with You obediently in all areas. Amen.
In GOD We Trust!
