Bible reading: Luke 8:1-3

Memory verse: “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you “Luke 6:38 (NKJV).

For years, R.G. Le Tourneau had sold the machinery he had built for himself when he needed money. One day, his attorney hinted at the idea of solving his financial woes by going full force into the manufacturing business rather than rolling the dice on the ups and downs of big construction jobs. He heeded to his advice. He made hundreds of thousands of dollars during a time when the rest of the country was plagued with the Great Depression.

In 1935, with the gigantic profits pouring out of the manufacturing business, at the gentle suggestion of his wife Evelyn, they transitioned to a 90/10 split with the Lord. 90% went to the Lord and 10% went to R.G. and Evelyn. LeTourneau was fond of remarking, “It’s not how much of my money I give to God, but how much of God’s money I keep for myself.” With the money, they established the LeTourneau Foundation to manage the administration of donations.

In the year 1935 also, R. G. LeTourneau overcame a lifelong fear of public speaking and gave his first speech at the opening of his newest plant, to which he urged his fellow Christians in the room to do more for the Lord in their businesses.

R. G .LeTourneau was a mighty man of God whose life continues to inspire Christians in Business to this day. Will your biography inspire others too?

Quote: If God can own your heart, He can bless your hands.

Prophetic Word: Receive the earthquake of deliverance that will cut you off from poverty.

Prayer point:

  1. Lord, take my heart and let it be consecrated to you, in Jesus name.
  2. I kill the love of this world, its affections and lust, in my heart, in Jesus name.
