We have a money covenant with God. If we aren’t prosperous, but broke and living in poverty we are sinning. We owe it to God to be prosperous. When we are not, we are being rebellious. Dr Thompson says, Since walking in prosperity is the will of God, then every Christian who is living from paycheck to paycheck, barely getting by, is not living in the will of God.
Chapter 2 of Money Cometh to the Body of Christ, by Dr. Leroy Thompson, Sr.
Open a Savings Account, for you will need a place to put the money God puts in your hand.
Some Christians say, “Well, we’re going to be raptured; we’re not going to be here all of our lives, so we don’t need to save any money.” That’s foolish! Put some money up in savings! Then if the Lord sends you to get some money out to give to a worthy cause, you’ll be glad you did. If you had $75,000 in the bank, you could go to the bank and say, “Give me $5,000,” and then give it to the Lord’s work. That’s how God wants to use you.
