I know giving money is a touchy topic for some, but it shouldn't be. The government does whatever they want with our money - we have absolutely NO say - but we get funky with God who created and gives any money we ever access. It's a heart issue ... are you giving to and for the Lord or for wrong reasons?
Another Biblical principle you can learn about in My Money Grows on Trees is the remnant princple that tells you why only a small percentage of believers break through. God wants us ALL to believe Him, love Him and live abundant life but He also prophesied that many wouldn't. Read the book. Read both books. His first and then mine. ;)
