Author Dr. John DeVries
In these 40 days of daily meditations, Devries also make the case that giving unlocks God's infinite resources. If we give in order to get for ourselves, we succumb to the heretical "prosperity" doctrine. Instead, Devries explains, we give in order to get in order to give even more! The result of this kind of giving is joy-becoming more like God, experiencing sympathy for others, discovering God's infinite resources, feeling a renewed joy within, following Christ's example, connecting with the grace of God that inspires more giving and joy, and motivating others to give.
