God Always Deserves More
Can any of us say that He deserves less? He gave us our very lives. What does He deserve for that incredible gift?
He gives us all of our finances. Ten percent and an occasional gift to demonstrate our love and appreciation for Him and for what He has done are certainly appropriate. Especially when you become aware that He stretches the ninety percent that we don*t give Him farther than we could stretch one hundred percent of it.
He gives us 24 hours per day. He is pleased if we spend a couple of hours a day willingly doing what He wants us to do. And when we give Him a couple of hours of obedience He blesses the other 14 waking hours. If you try giving Him a little more than a couple of hours He will multiply His blessings to you. His blessings won*t necessarily be in giving you more time or money. But He will certainly multiply your joy, peace, satisfaction and fulfillment.
You won*t be able to calculate the Blessings that will come to you if you give Him 16 or even 24 hours a day. If you do the best you can for Him He will do the best He can for you. Your best might not be much but His best is wonderful.
