"But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your forefathers, as it is today" (Deut. 8:18).

What is God's reason for making sure His people live well? Is it so we can watch the Super Bowl on bigger TVs? So we can buy the hottest clothes and even hotter cars?

Establishing His covenant on the earth and giving to those in need—those are God's purposes for wanting you to live well!

I've had some people tell me, "Well, Jesus' ministry was poor and He got along just fine." That's ridiculous. All the way through the Old Testament God promised material benefits to anyone who would walk upright before Him. If God had failed to bless Jesus financially, He would have been breaking His own Word.

Jesus never built a worldly empire for Himself. But that doesn't mean He was poor. It means He was the greatest giver who ever walked the face of this earth—and it's about time we started following in His footsteps.

If we'll start giving, if we'll start taking care of others' needs, we'll be far more likely to win their hearts.

Don't ever let anyone tell you it's wrong to want to live well. It's wrong for you not to want to live well, when it can mean the difference between heaven and hell for millions of people.

Forget about your own trivial needs. Raise your vision and set your mind on giving to meet someone else's needs—on establishing God's covenant in the earth. Then stand in faith and get ready to enjoy the greatest living you've ever dreamed of.

Talk The Truth: "I remember the Lord. He gives me the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant" (Deut. 8:18).
