1. Give, Expecting to Receive. Our Creator gave His most precious Son, Jesus Christ, to die; fully expecting to receive sons and daughters in return.
    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
    (John 3:16)
    Expect to reap a money harvest from every money seed you plant. God will not change His laws. And while waiting for your harvest, plan how to plant more money seeds from it.

    If you always sow, you can always reap. God guarantees seedtime and harvest in His Word. (See Gen. 8:22.)
  2. Trust God's Promises. He promises to provide all you need and more. (See Phil. 4:15-19.) You cannot give too much when you give in Jesus' name.

    He will multiply each offering back to you, and see that you have more than enough treasure in heaven and on earth.
  3. Choose Faith Over Fear. The devil can only keep you from breaking through into God's abundance by convincing you that you cannot do it. God has you walk in faith to counteract Satan's lies.

    Faith cannot operate together with fear or doubt, so reject them. Use each faith step to destroy Satan's attempts to make you poor.
  4. Tithe and Give Offerings. God expects you to do this, not to make you poor, but to open the windows of heaven and allow Him to bless you through them.

    He measures that blessing back to you with the same measure that you have measured it out to Him.
  5. Plant Your Seed to Glorify God.
    There is [he] that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is [he] that withholdeth more than is meet [fitting], but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
    (Prov. 11:24,25)
    You have planted your seeds cheerfully and good-heartedly to glorify God. Now expect an abundant harvest.
  6. Reap Your Harvest. Your circumstances may not change suddenly, but stand on God's promises. Your tithe keeps the windows of heaven open and your offerings establish an abundant flow through them.

    Sow according to God's Word and you will reap according to God's Word.
  7. Always Replant Part of Every Harvest. Tithe and give generous offerings on income tax refunds, extra income and all other money you receive. Remember: you must plant regularly to reap regularly.
