Master Your Money Devotional Guide 6-1

Back in September I mentioned to you God’s blessing upon my lending out some money to help a friend. After that my boss came to me to say I received a 2% raise. Coincidence? Maybe. About 16 months ago I made a decision to help a young family reach students on college campuses for Christ. It was a stretch for me to do. I never felt peace about it; it was an act of faith. I did know that it was a good thing to do. It was a bit sacrificial on my part and sacrifices never feel good. Shortly after, I started working with Crossroads Prison Ministry that has been one of the most rewarding activities I have ever done. I’ve worked hard at this ministry and my entire life seems to turn around it. Meanwhile, over this course of time my stats at work seemed to have risen. My manager told me the other day, “Congratulations for getting gold for the second quarter in a row!” What? I received gold twice and I didn’t even realize that. Making gold means I received $1500 bonus TWICE!!! Honestly, I don’t know how I did this because the only thing that changed was taking on grading these lessons and writing these letters to people in need. Praise God! That is all I’m going to say.
