You Cant Out-give God

See if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.
Malachi 3:10

My (JCD's) dad, an evangelist, was the original soft touch. I remember him once going off to speak in a tiny church and coming home ten days later. Eventually my mother asked about the offering. I can still see my father's face as he smiled and looked at the floor. "You gave the money away again, didn't you?" she asked. "Myrt," he said, "the pastor there is going through a hard time. His kids are so needy. I felt I should give the entire fifty dollars to them." My good mother looked at my father for a few moments and then smiled. "You know, if God told you to do it, it's okay with me." A few days later, we ran completely out of money, so my father gathered us for a time of prayer. He said, "Lord, you told us that if we would honor you in our good times, that you would take care of us when things are difficult. We need a little help at this time." The next day we received an unexpected check for $1,200. That's the way it happened— not once, but many times. No matter what you give, you'll find you can never outgive God.

From Dr. Dobson's book Night Light for Couples
