Receiving Financial Blessing: How to Walk in Truth, Righteousness and Honesty With Money by Stephen R. Kirkendall is in itself a blessing. It informs readers of the curse or favor one could potentially receive if they are obedient to God with their finances. Tithing is not an outdated, Old Testament ritual. Receiving Financial Blessing explores how tithing and the giving of both one's time and money applies to today. Filled to the brim with Bible verses, Receiving Financial Blessing pinpoints ways in which you will receive rewards and favor from the Lord if you are a faithful steward of His money. The book is equipped with a detailed list of rewards that are backed by biblical reference. The list of rewards puts the idea of receiving blessings from God as a result of tithing into a tangible perspective.
The author's voice is easy to understand and relate to. He sheds light on several ways that the giving away of earthly things helped him to attain peace and joy through the Holy Spirit. Having the heart of a cheerful giver is a difficult thing for any person, even a believer, to accomplish. Receiving Financial Blessing opens your eyes to the limitless possibilities of the spiritual blessings one can receive by being a faithful steward of God's money. The book is a good reminder that our money is not our own, and the more we give, the more we truly receive. Although being blessed by God through giving is a definite possibility here on Earth, it may not be until we get to heaven that we receive our reward in full.
