Matthew 6:25

THE OUTWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Giving

For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing.

People often hesitate to give substantial amounts of their surplus away because they fear that in so doing they might run out of money later. But think, have you ever heard of anyone becoming poor because they gave too much away? You see fear and faith are incompatible. You cannot have faith and be fearful and you cannot be fearful and have faith. Matthew 6:25 says, “For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing (NASB)?” So, do you believe that God will continue to care for you while you take care of others? Think about it.
