God's economics sometimes require a leap of faith! Thankfully, His principles work just as He promises and a generous person will prosper.

Have you noticed by now how many teachings of Christ are paradoxes (that is, they seem to contradict established principles of human life)? When Jesus said that in God’s world “the last shall be first and the first shall be last,” he really meant it. God’s economics sometimes require a leap of faith, but here’s the amazing thing—his principles work just as He promises!

Here’s an example: “A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed” (Proverbs 11:25). You’d think that this is absurd. After all, if I give my stuff to other people, I will automatically have less. But in Godonomics, people who trust his words and dare to live them will find His magic and “refreshing” all over the place.

God loves it when you show hospitality . . . share food with the hungry . . . contribute to a homeless shelter . . . volunteer at a thrift store . . . mentor a fatherless kid . . . hire a disabled adult . . . guard a school crossing . . . drive an elderly person to the doctor . . .
