Headline for Book Review: It is in giving you shall receive, it can be your time, talents, money or almost anything.
Quote: “I’ve been carrying around some of God’s Money.”
This book was given in advanced by Multnomah Books for my honest review. I am a Christian whom loves to read about God or anything to do with Christianity so this was a fabulous and easy to read book. I loved this book most because it is like a “pay it forward.”
What Bruce explains is that we are partners with God and we should always have some spare change or dollars in a special pouch to be able to help others in need as you go about your day.
Take these steps for your God Pocket or pouch:
- Decided in advanced how much money you are going to place in it.
- Devote that money directly to God.
- Deposit the money into the Pocket.
- Depend on God to lead you to the person who needs it or needs “God Nudge.”
- Deliver God’s funds to the recipient.
- Declare that God is the Ultimate giver whom provided the funds.
- Disciple the person who receives the God Pocket to become a delivery agent themselves.
- Share your experiences as you have blessed others through this method.
- Recommend this book or buy a few to give away to help them “pay it forward.”
I think this is a marvelous way to share the gospel of God and to glorify God. I have donated money and given money to others in need myself, even when my funds were very low. I once gave away my last 20.00 and found out that the kid had no gas money and a wife and baby in his car. It is in giving that we receive. The blessings go beyond our natural inclinations.
