    Truth and understanding of GODs word can only come from reading his words through the Bible. Man will say GODs animals were not given an soul nor understands. I say to those Indivduals GOD in Genesis prepare and gave the same to his animals for meat as he did for man. Also in Genesis GOD made a Convenant with Noah and the animals, about the rainbow (arch) and not destroying the earth again by wate

    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!!
