Bible Reading: Acts 10:1-4

Memory Verse: “Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings. Malachi 3:8 (NKJV)

Rockefeller got his first job in Cleveland at age 16 as an assistant bookkeeper with a salary of just $1.50 a week. But he was fast to grasp his first pivotal lessons in life. One: never forget, and two: learn the art of tithing. He confessed: “I would never have been able to tithe my first million dollars if I would not have tithed my first salary which was $1.50 a week”. Early in his career, young Rockefeller sensed that he could become so much more than a humble bookkeeper.

John Rockefeller net worth ranks higher than Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Carlos Slim combined. Even when he built his empire, he still taught at Sunday school every week. In 1870, Rockefeller founded the Standard Oil Company in Ohio, one of the most iconic businesses in American history. Within few years, Standard Oil dominated the petroleum industry and was refining over 90% of the oil in the US. He was a Philanthropist with interest in education, medical research and fighting diseases all over the world through the establishment of the Rockefeller Foundation.
