When a Stingy Poor Man Becomes Rich

When a man is poor and stingy, what does he become when he gets rich? This 1-minute devotion explores Scripture, money, and stinginess. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible

"If a man is stingy when he is poor, he will be stingy when he is rich.” unknown

That’s because generosity has more to do with our hearts than our pocketbooks. And generosity doesn't simply apply to money. It applies to time, effort, and consideration.

In Luke 21 a poor widow put two copper coins in the temple treasury, and Jesus said, “I tell you the truth…this poor widow has put in more than all the others” (21:3,4). Her gift was not the largest, but it was the most generous.

When we give generously in any area of our lives, God notices… and He remembers. It’s like making a deposit in our eternal bank account (1 Timothy 6:17-19).

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.” Matthew 6:19-20

  1. I so believe this. My favorite lay preacher Bo Sanchez said money does not change a person, it only magnifies who he really is. :)

  4. My mom used to say (translating) "The one who gives is the one who wants, not the one who has" In other words you don't have to be rich to give, but out of love, true love founded in Christ motivates you to generously give open-handed.
