Then Jacob made a vow, saying, “If God will be with me and keep me in this way that I am going, and give me bread to eat and clothing to put on, so that I come back to my father’s house in peace, then the Lord shall be my God. And this stone which I have set as a pillar shall be God’s house and of all that You give me I will surely give a tenth to You.”        Genesis 28.20-22
Jacob was a fugitive. He was in the desert and had nothing to offer. He didn't even have anything for himself, which is the same situation many find themselves in today.
But he had a strength, a power, an energy: faith in the God of Abraham and Isaac. Armed with this conviction, he made a vow to the Lord and put faithfulness into practice.
The result: When he left his employer's house, he was richer than him.
