Jesus made it clear that we are to put our confidence in the Bank of Heaven where corruption cannot break in and steal. America's headlines this week cause us to reflect upon how, once again, wise Jesus seems. The safest place to put our money is in the giving away zone. Earthiness insists we figure a way to keep it.
This week's news isn't about Wall Street or politics or poor judgment. It is all about where we believe our money is the safest. When all is said and done, the words of Jesus will prove true. The best way to save funds is to give them away. The kingdom of God is backward to the kingdom earth.
Before house payment or car(s) payment or retirement planning, our biggest deposit of the money God graces our income with should be in our giving every week. Nothing we buy should surpass the amount we give. That's not a law. It's a vision.
