As a teacher of The Written Word my goal is to provide revelation and understanding that can be lived out as wisdom. I've had the same conversation twice in one week about the topic of believers doing their best to get everything free instead of investing in The Kingdom and themselves.
Yeshua paid it all. And yes His work at Calvary was complete, but we have to pay and invest, too. Believers don't have any trouble buying name-brand bags, shoes and clothing (I know I don't have any problem paying what my favorite companies charge) but too often we want to undercut Kingdom entrepreneurs instead of supporting them.
That's dishonor and it's the exact opposite of everything Proverbs (and The rest of The Word) instructs. God's not gonna prosper an unrenewed, selfish mindset. Watch this short video for some real heat.
