We are not owners of anything, but we are stewards of everything. When we keep a tight fist on those things that pass through our hands, our "bags" will grow holes. The key to living a prosperous life is to invest our resources, time, and gifts back into others. Kingdom investors—you are blessed, to bless others! After all, we can't bring anything with us in the end.

Do you feel like your money is spent before you even get your paycheck? It's tiring, isn't it? God consistently gives us truths to abide by, and one of the ways to break the chains of not enough, is to be faithful with what you have right now. Our finances are not something we own, we just steward them. When we surrender our resources back to Him, He will grow us from the bag to a barrel, from a barrel to a basket, and from a basket to a barn! Let it go to grow!
