God is Running Short of Cash, I Got an Idea

...The fallout from the pledge pinch already is being felt. United Methodist bishops volunteered for pay cuts. The Episcopalians, Roman Catholics and Conservative and Reform Jews have had congregations fall behind in their payments, resulting in job cuts. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) dropped a radio program that had been on the air since 1947.....Source: Star

It looks as if the churches are cash strapped. Evidently they need more faith in the power of God to generate money.

But I get a little confused.

How can God help the churches get money when he always needs money for himself.

Churches are always telling us that it is the Lord's money, but he never seems to have enough.

I don't know. It seems to me if the Lord has all the money along with being all powerful, all knowing, and all everything then he shouldn't need for anything.

But the Lord is always wanting what little money we have. He always promises that if we just dig deep and give him 10% and up of our income, he will make things happen for us. The Lord will come through for us. I guess it is kind of like an IOU. We give him the money and he will pay us later 10 or even a hundred fold.

I got an idea.

Suppose all of the churches got together and gave each other all of the money they have. God will really like their faith and will surely give the churches 10 or even a 100 times more than what they give each other. Soon the cash strapped churches will be rolling in money just by giving each other what they have.

This simple act of Churches giving to God all that they have will surely be richly rewarded. It is like the Churches will be demonstrating to the world that they really believe in what they preach.

But you might be arguing that Churches giving to each other is just God transferring money from one pocket to the other. It isn't really giving God anything more than he already has.

Well, that is a good point. But if God has all the money anyway then why should he be upset if the churches show some great big faith in their own preaching by giving their money to other Churches? I am sure God will come through for the Church. He wouldn't hose the elect.

But that's another thing.

Even after we give God our money, he doesn't come through a lot of times. God talks a good game about giving us what we want if we just give him some cash. But, he likes to hold out a lot.

Now I am not calling God a liar or saying that he isn't all powerful, but I am just wondering.

I guess no one understands the workings of the Lord, especially when it comes to money.
