Tight-Fist

“I’ve matched your tight-fisted stinginess by decreeing a season of drought, drying up fields and hills, withering gardens and orchards, stunting vegetables and fruit. Nothing – not man or woman, not animal or crop – is going to thrive.” Then the governor, Zerubbabel son of Shealtiel, and the high priest, Joshua son of Jehozadak, and all the people with them listened, really listened, to the voice of their God. When God sent the prophet Haggai to them, they paid attention to him. In listening to Haggai, they honored God.” (Haggai 1:11,12) I used to be very tight fisted and probably could work on this issue more in my life. Dave Ramsey said it best, “when you a have a tight fist, you might not be letting money go but at the same time, you’re not letting money come in.” Jesus said “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38) How much more evidence do we need that God wants us to be generous not only with money but with our time and talents also. We are here to bless others. So, let God use you to be a blessing and He will definitely bless us back more than we can imagine. God Loves Ya 😉
