    Going along with vv. 8-9, Matt. 6:33. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, AND HIS RIGHTIOUSNESS, and all these things shall be added unto you. When giving tithes and offerings, unto the Lord, if in your heart you are so disposed, please make a way, Lord, for the increase in giving. Cheerful giving. And He will make the way, out of His abundance! His grace is sufficient for us. BELIEVE!!
