    I BELEIVE THAT A MAN WHO OBEYS THE WORD OF GOD AND IS A GOOD STEWART WITH THE MONEYS THAT THE LORD HAS GIVEN HIM WILL RECEIVE THESE BLESSINGS,EVEN AS WE ALLOW THE LORD TO USE US HIS SONS, AND DAUGHTERS,WITH THE WEALTH TO BLESS THEM WHO HE WILL.
  • Pearl Brewington for verse 22
    I believe this Word to be true. I believe God rewards according to His divine purpose He plans for each life. If your destiny and purpose is give to the poor, finance ministries all over, have compassion, God 's true love for people many times from the things He allows you to suffer to truly give from pure motives this transfer will be granted. Other motives causes you to turn from God embracing the world 's standards and thereby lose your own salvation. Love God first with all our hearts

  • Shalini D for verse 22
    I believe god checks the motives of our heart.if our motive is to extend his kingdom and wealth is going to be a tool then only god will make it possible for the transfer of wealth from the sinner to the just..god will not risk losing his children for any other purpose.. He knows our human weakness..let 's keep our hearts and motives pure..money is just a tool either to bless or curse..my prayer is prosperity yes! But not at the cost of losing his presence.i love him too much for that.
  • Ashveer for verse 22
