The New Testament teaches the remarkable idea that we
can "invest in eternity," that is, that we can use our resources now
in such a way that they will generate a return in the age to come. Are you
investing in eternity? Years ago, God asked me to
give more and to start investing in very very long CDs - eternal
Christian Deposits - if you will.
You might be thinking
that times are tough and you actually plan to give less. Please
consider the fact that God's financial insurance is to sow more and to give in
the very area where you desire to reap. God's spiritual LAW of sowing and
reaping never never fails. If you will follow the Holy Spirit to sow into
the Kingdom of God, you will reap in kind, more than you sow and later than you
sow. If you have a need, sow more of that very thing.
Are you like a Macedonian, looking for ways to be more

but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping with
God's will. So we urged Titus, since he had earlier made a beginning, to
bring also to completion this act of grace on your part. But just as you
excel in everything - in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete
earnestness and in your love for us - see that you also excel in this grace of
giving." (2 Corinthians 8:1-7)
ago, God challenged me to give - believing for 100 fold.
I did an extensive Bible study on God's promise
that whatever we lay down for the Kingdom's sake, we will reap 100 fold --
not 100 times, but 100 fold. I gave my last $100. believing
God's promises, "GOD, YOU SAID!" God motivated someone to bless me with a
value worth $10,000. the very next month!! Then I was determined to
give to His Kingdom believing for a 100 fold!
