A. A. Hyde, a millionaire manufacturer, said he began tithing when he was $100,000 in debt. Many people said it wasn’t necessary to give God a tenth of his income while he was in debt. Mr. Hyde said he agreed with that viewpoint until one day he was impressed to make God his first creditor. He began paying God first, and all the other creditors were eventually paid in full.

If a man owes you money, it would be a wise business policy on your part to encourage him to pay his debt to God first.

Notice the following passage from Proverbs 3:9, 10: “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine” (NKJV).

God is the ultimate financial partner! Again and again people have discovered that when they make Him their partner, He blesses them and enriches their lives in many ways.

Remember to give to God first, and you will also receive His many blessings.
