It all begins  with trust. See Proverbs 3:5-6. 2 Corinthians 5:17. God says, “There’s so much more I want you to know, but you need to learn to trust me.” Romans 12:2. So how do we begin growing our faith? Start by being a giver. Trust changes our giving. Giving comes from the merit of the giver; it’s not based on the worthiness of the receiver. Winston Churchill tells us, “We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” Growth continues when we become lovers. Consider the great commandments in Matthew 22:37-40. The real growth doesn’t happen by what we do, but by what God does. God will clean up our mess if we trust him. Discover more in this teaching by Pastor Joel Pagett.
