William Borden made headlines in the early 20th century for giving his entire fortune away, the equivilent of 40 million dollars in todays money.
Half to the work of God in the US, and half to overseas missions. Was it worth it to give it all away?
It was asked of Job’s motivation; did He serve God because of what he got out of out for himself?
Most people see wealth as a sign of blessing, but Christ saw things very differently..
The rich young ruler went away sorrowful after his conversation with Jesus because he was owned by his riches. After this, Peter said he has
given all away to follow Christ, and he wanted to know what was in it for him.
Christ did not rebuke Peter for asking but said in vs 30 whoever has forsaken things or people for Him would receive a hundredfold and eternal life.
Everything we give up for God will be blessed out of proportion.
