Carpenter Spent His Savings On Sick Son But God Showed Up In A Big Way

This video shows the joy of giving to the Lord. A carpenter spent his savings on his sick son, but God showed up in a big way.

Todd Dundson dreamed of being a builder. He became a carpenter and started his own successful business. This video shares his story about how in the midst of his progress with work, one of his sons needed help. Todd as a single dad stepped in.

Todd left the dream-job business he had created for a while to work for someone else to be able to give more of his time to his son. In his new job, it gave him good pay, but then the money was cut in half. He kept taking side jobs, but it did not give him enough. He even had to go to a food bank at one point. Then, he missed a few months of mortgage payments.

Todd always tithed and trusted God no matter what happened. He shares how he loves to give and he had confidence that the Lord would look out for him. On a Sunday at church, before the offering, Todd felt the Lord encourage him that He was going to take care of him. Right when he got home, the phone rang.

A former contractor wanted to hire him and give him a cash advance. The advance enabled him to pay off his bills. Todd now looks back and sees how his sacrifice impacted his son and helped him get back on his feet.

God asks us to trust Him with our finances. He owns everything. It can be easy to hold back our giving out of fear or control. However, we can surrender to Him and give towards the church and His kingdom knowing that He will take care of us. We can do so with cheerful hearts.

"Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
