From 5 Cents to $100

When candy manufacturer John S. Huyler started out in business, he took Jacob’s pledge: “. . . of all that thou shalt give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.” – Genesis 28:22. Going to the bank, he opened a special account which he initialed “M. P.” Into that fund he regularly entered a proportionate amount of his income. When anyone asked what the strange label meant, they were told that it stood for “My Partner.”

As he kept God uppermost in his mind in all his transactions, his industry grew at a phenomenal rate, and each week the “Lord’s treasury” received increasingly large sums. His gifts to worthy causes and private individuals amazed his business associates. These contributions were always accompanied with the request that the donor should not receive any thanks or glory for his actions. He asked each recipient to offer praise to God alone, for he said, “After all, the money isn’t mine; it’s the Lord’s!”
