The investor must give by faith. It’s not a faith in “faith,” but a faith in God—that God will see and respond. “Without faith it is impossible to please God,” Hebrews 11:6. When we give generously by faith, we don’t know how and when God will “repay,” but He certainly will. God’s blessing is a promised reward for faith-based obedience. A “payback” is real and assured, but the specific form/quantity/media are not predictable. The blessings for faith-based obedience can take an endless number of expressions—even beyond our comprehension.

Are we being fooled about money? In this short article, Tom talks about the three biggest money myths we are often led to believe, and why it’s dangerous to believe them.
1. You must have a lot of money to be a good money manager: FALSE.
How did the great money managers develop their skills? They all started small. Skill and amount differs like a pianist and a piano. Some say, “Just let me win the lottery and I’ll show you how good I am at managing money.” Dream on. Jesus said, “He who is faithful with little is also faithful with much,” (Luke 16:10). The skill of money management is more important and valuable than the money itself. God says in Proverbs 8:11, “Wisdom is better than jewels and all that you desire cannot compare with her.” Let me go on to say that good money skills usually attracts more money, but not always. The key is to focus on skill development, not on quantity.
