Ministries have struggled to survive financially without becoming what Jesus called, “a den of robbers,” (Matthew 21:13). The brutal truth is that it takes great faith for anyone to serve God with honor. Leaders must rely 100% on our Lord to supply their family’s needs and the massive expenses of a growing ministry. As impossible as it may seem, it is imperative that we follow the example of Jesus Christ. He focused on completing the work His Father had assigned to Him while fully trusting in God to supply practical needs. Christ was not oblivious to their financial status, but He fully relied on the verse “Give and it shall be given to you,” (Luke 6:38). The ministry of Jesus Christ had a treasurer and dependable donors. In addition, they invited people to join their efforts or pitch in toward mutual goals. Most importantly, Jesus never lost sight of the fact that God Almighty (and not followers) was the central provider for their successful ministry!
