A young married couple could only save R100 per month. They noticed a foreign Christian student didn’t have food money. It was a no brainer. The R100 now went towards the student’s food. And the Kingdom of God advances.

That wasn’t a lot of money but “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9:7). We need to live generously and not only give when we have “enough”. We give out of love and obedience to God.

Be on the lookout for ways in which God wants you to be generous with your time, money and talents – and then give!



Read Proverbs3:9-10 (

Wealth, money, stuff – don’t put it above God – don’t make it your idol.

When we give to God, we’re showing God that He is above this and we value Him above money. We are also showing that we don’t put our trust in money or stuff but we’re putting our trust in God.
Giving to Godis alsoa Biblical principle, by which you should live.

For example, if I were to get R50 from my parents a week, I’ll tithe R5 (which is the10%) and then perhaps give a further R2 as offering.
