God’s way works. When we begin to tithe, and I don’t care how far in debt you are, God will supernaturally show up and bless you and give you the discipline to live by a plan. So bring it.
The second one is, sweep it. Do that with me. Sweep it. Start saving money. Save, save, save. How many people in here go to Fivebucks? I’m sorry, I mean Starbucks. And I like Starbucks. I think coffee is God’s drink to man. I love it. If you are going to Starbucks, you are going to spend $5. I am not hating on Starbucks, I like Starbucks, but let me give you an example. Let’s say you like a triple shot latte, nonfat. That’s going to cost you $5. Well, let’s just say you decide for the next 40 years to forego the triple shot, nonfat latte. Let’s say you took that $5 and you swept into an interest bearing account. And let’s say that account kicked off 10% interest. Let’s say you’ve got $5, that is $35 a week, about $150 a month. In 40 years you would have a grand total of, I have to read this number, I did the math last night, $948,611. I will say it again. $948,611!
I am just giving you a Starbucks example. That is just $5 a day. Think of what you could do with 2% of your income, 3% of your income, 10% of your income. Sweep it, sweep it, sweep it. Because remember Proverbs 13:11? He who gathers money little by little makes it grow. Also, Proverbs says, “Go to the ant…” You know what the ant does? We all have ants everywhere. Ants store stuff up. And that’s what we’re doing as we’re involved with this.
