“..wealth gained by dishonesty will be diminished but he who gathers by labour will be increased..”Proverbs 13:11 (NKJV)

Something I have discovered in our world today is that too many of God’s people are not willing to start small in the area of finances. They want to start big and stay big, they want so much money right now. They are not willing to go through the procedure of becoming big. So in the process of trying to start big, they end up taking all manner of risk and doing a lot of things just to get big. And when their efforts don’t seem to be bearing fruit’s,  they blame it all on God. Some get angry with God while others conclude that God has forsaken them. They get themselves to believe a lie because they don’t want to take responsibility for their failure. 
However, the truth remains that, becoming big financially doesn’t start overnight. It is a process where you have to start somewhere . In most cases, you might have to start small but be contented and patient enough to start working your way up. Some don’t like to start small, they are not willing to take up jobs that will at least pay them consistently even though it’s little. But let your case be different. Be willing to start small but don’t end small. There is nothing wrong with starting small but while you are there, have a vision of growing big so that you don’t end small. Therefore, I encourage you today to think about these things. Don’t take the unnecessary risk of trying to start big. Don’t get into gimmicks because of trying to start big. Just start from somewhere and work your way up there. Remember the bible says in our opening text, “…he who gathers by labour will be increased..”Proverbs 13:11 (NKJV). If you start from somewhere you will definitely grow to that place where your heart desires. Praise God!


Start Small in your finances but while you are there work your way up there and become big.


All Glorious and ever living father, I thank you for your grace and mercy. I thank you for your word today, I choose to start small but I refuse to stay small because the ability to rise and increase in my finances is working in me mightily and producing tremendous results in the name of Jesus. Amen!
