  • □  The Life Cycle of Success

  Phase #1—R the G.

 He’s the of it all, because He’s the of it all.  Haggai 2:8—“The silver and the gold are Mine, says the LORD.”
 Psalm 24:1—“The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it.”

  •   Phase #2—R the G.
    •   Jesus: “Freely you have ; freely .” (Matthew 10:8)
    •   The parable of the rich fool
    •   Jesus: “Be toward God.” (Luke 12:21)
    •   Ed Gungor: “Giving touches a nerve in us that nothing else does. We look a lot like God when we do it [John 3:16]. When you give, you defy the fear that you won’t have enough. You insult greed, the impulse to acquire or possess more than one needs or deserves. If you really believe that God owns it all and that he is your source and provider, giving will be a simple matter. . . . The arena of giving is the only place where exactly what’s going on in your heart is revealed. According to Jesus, giving keeps your heart in motion toward God and away from material things. . . . Your heart will follow the direction of your giving.” (Religiously Transmitted Diseases)
  •   Phase #3—R the G.
    •   Desire of Ages: “All who consecrate soul, body, and spirit to God will be constantly receiving a new endowment of physical and mental power. The inexhaustible supplies of are at their command.” (827)
    •   You can never out-give God!

  “Everything that God could do was done to save a perishing world. ‘God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.’ God has made it impossible for it to be said that He could have done more than He has done for the fallen race. When He gave His Son, He gave Himself. In one great gift He poured out the whole treasure of heaven. He has revealed a love that defies all computation, a love that should fill our hearts and lives with gratitude.” (Review and Herald January 14, 1902)

  “God is a lovely cheerful giver.”

□ 2 Corinthians 9:15

“Thanks be to God
for His indescribable gift!”
