A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children.-Pr. 13:22

 

What’s your net worth? The word inheritance is used 203 times in the Bible, so God must think it’s important. In man’s kingdom, your “net worth” is the sum of all you own.  But in God’s kingdom your net worth equals the sum total of all you’ve given away.  What you don’t share is lost forever, but what you put into God’s hands becomes an eternal keepsake. We are worth only what we are willing to share with others.  What’s your net worth?  It’s the sum total of all you have given away.  Trust God and he will direct your giving.
