"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." -
Jim Elliot

Father, what’s the eternal downside in giving as much as I can give to You now? In contrast, what’s the eternal downside of minimizing or delaying my giving?”

  • Luke 16:10–12
  • Luke 19:17
  • Mark 10:29–30
  • 2 Corinthians 5:9–11

Father, if I don’t release my resources now for Your kingdom causes, will I be in danger of becoming more wrapped up in earthly, rather than heavenly, treasure?”

  • 1 Timothy 6:17–18
  • Matthew 6:21
  • Hebrews 3:15.
