“Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” – Malachi 3:10
R. G. LeTourneau was a Christian industrialist who dedicated his life to being a businessman for God. He was hugely successful, designing and developing his own line of earth-moving equipment.
LeTourneau was the maker of nearly 300 inventions and had hundreds of patents in his lifetime. As he succeeded financially, he increased his giving to the point where he was giving 90% of his income to the Lord’s work.
“I shovel out the money, and God shovels it back—but God has a bigger shovel.” – R. G. LeTourneau
You may be thinking, “I could give 90% too if I was a millionaire.” Maybe so, but LeTourneau didn’t start out wealthy.
Here is a challenge for all, whatever percentage of your income you are currently giving, make a commitment now to bump that percentage up with every opportunity you have. We will never be able to out-give God! Invest eternally not temporally! Only what we do for Christ will last.
