Continuous Provision

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.

Proverbs 13:11

Prosperity comes through honest investment. God talks more about financial management in His word than He does salvation. The Lord knows the vital role money plays in our lives and the control it can have over us if we let it. As the saying goes, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”  The primary Biblical financial guideline has three parts: 10% tithe, 10% savings, and living on the rest. If you apply that strategy to your money, you will control your money instead of it controlling you.

For the majority of my life, paychecks come once a month. At first, I had difficulty adjusting to not receiving a weekly or bi-weekly paycheck. But now, I find it much easier to budget. Our tithe goes out first thing, savings automatically get deducted from our bank account, and then we live on the rest. Some months, we get to the end and have a little left; others, we have a lot. But every month, we have something left in the budget. God blesses your efforts when you put Him first in your finances.

Start tithing and saving today. Give God the first 10%, then find an app like Acorn that rounds up your spare change from debit transactions and puts it into a savings account. You will eventually grow an oak from small acorn investments if you give it enough time. Watch how the Lord blesses your efforts.


Small investments pay big dividends.


Lord, thank You for teaching us how to manage money. Help us apply Biblical wisdom to our finances. Show us ways we can tithe first and then save, building a nest egg for rainy days. Bless our efforts as we make minor changes to build financial security with You.
