  • 1. Wealth itself is not condemned.
  • Wealthy people were condemned for the way they got rich
  • 3. Christians should be concerned about the effect wealth can have on our lives.
  • Oppression and Fraud

  • Laziness, neglect, or gluttony
  • Practicing stewardship enables people to: find their spiritual gifts (1Co 12), increase their faith (Mal 3:10), become spiritually sensitive (Mal 3:8-10), be fruitful in God’s Kingdom (Mt 25:14-30), receive blessings from God (Mal 3:10-12), be a blessing to others (Ga 6:10), & make a lasting contribution to God (Mt 6:20).
  • Most people say, “When I feel good I’ll do it. When I have more I’ll give it.” Successful people say, “I’ll do it, then I’ll feel good. I’ll give, then I’ll have more.” Teaching stewardship is more than raising money; it is God’s way of raising Christ followers.
  • The person who waits to do a great deal of good at once will never do anything” (Samuel Johnson). “ If I had a million dollars I would give it all to the church.” “ He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much” (Lu 16:10). That principle has shown time and time again that it’s not how much we have of the world that dictates our generosity toward God, but how much God has of us.
  • “ God will give to us what He knows will flow through us.” At the core of stewardship is a covenant of trust. Owners only relinquish control when trust flows from them to the steward. Only when we move from being an aggressive accumulator of assets to being an appropriate steward of assets God has entrusted to us will we be able to truly implement stewardship as a framework for living. “ God will give to us what He knows will flow through us.” At the core of stewardship is a covenant of trust. Owners only relinquish control when trust flows from them to the steward. Only when we move from being an aggressive accumulator of assets to being an appropriate steward of assets God has entrusted to us will we be able to truly implement stewardship as a framework for living.
  • Do I teach that God always wills his people to have perfect physical health? Do I believe that suffering is most often a consequence of a person’s specific sins (Jo 9:2-3)? Do I think that fruitless prayers for healing usually indicate sin or lack of faith in a sick person’s life?
  • Do I believe that being right with God produces immediate physical as well as spiritual healing (2Co 12:7-10)? Do I teach that God is obligated or constrained to answer expectant and faithful prayers from his children with healing, prosperity and success?
  • Do I think that Jesus’ suffering protects and exempts his followers from suffering? When counseling sick people, do I usually first try to expose sin in their lives to discover why they are sick? Are my prayers or my church’s prayers largely concerned with people’s physical ailments?
  • Do I teach that God desires his people to be wealthy and enjoy great material comforts? Do I teach that material comfort and riches go hand in hand with obedience to God? Do I publicly or privately elevate the spiritual contributions rich congregants bring to my church more than those of poorer congregants (James 2:1-9)?
  • Do I implicitly or explicitly preach that wealth is always positive, or at least value-neutral, and never dangerous to the spiritual health of the congregation? Do I teach that when a giver gives monetarily out of faith, God always will resupply him with an equal or larger amount for his faithfulness?
  • Do I teach that poverty among believers is a result of personal sin or weak faith? When encountering and ministering to poor people, do I assume their faith is weaker than mine (Matthew 19:23-24)?
  • Do I teach that poverty among believers is a result of personal sin or weak faith? When encountering and ministering to poor people, do I assume their faith is weaker than mine (Matthew 19:23-24)?
  • When was the last time I preached a sermon on money? When was the last time I talked to a church member about his giving habits? Have I ever been accused of “meddling” in financial matters from the pulpit?
  • Have I ever challenged my congregation’s sense of economic comfort (Acts 20:27)? Do I tell my congregation that all they have belongs to the Lord, rather than merely asking for donations to the church? Do I preach on giving throughout the year, or only during the annual pledge drive?
  • Does my own preaching reflect the priority Jesus placed on stewardship? What is the extent of my involvement in the annual stewardship campaign? What is the state of congregational giving in my church?
  • Has there been any change in overall congregational giving in response to my preaching (Isaiah 55:10-11)? Has anyone in my church made a significant change in lifestyle or giving habits in response to my preaching?
  • Do I really believe and practice that it is more blessed to give than to receive? Naniniwala ko ba at ginagawa ko ba na Do I do myself what I am asking my congregation to do (1 Timothy 4:12)? Do I make regular financial contributions to the Lord’s work? Do I experience joy when I give to the church and other worthy ministries (2 Corinthians 8:1-2)?
  • Do I really believe and practice that it is more blessed to give than to receive? Naniniwala ko ba at ginagawa ko ba na Do I do myself what I am asking my congregation to do (1 Timothy 4:12)? Do I make regular financial contributions to the Lord’s work? Do I experience joy when I give to the church and other worthy ministries (2 Corinthians 8:1-2)?
  • Do I give out of an overflowing love for Jesus and gratefulness for his great sacrifice for me (2 Corinthians 8:9)? Do I believe that giving to advance the cause of Christ stores up eternal treasures for me in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21)?
  • Do I believe that giving is an antidote to materialism and breaks money’s hold on my heart? Am I serving God or money (Matthew 6:24)? What percentage of my current income do I give to the work of the kingdom? How does this compare with the average born-again believer’s giving of 3.5 percent? How does this compare with the Old Testament standard of the tithe?
  • Do I believe that the Bible is not just about “spiritual” matters but all of life, including money (Colossians 1:20)? Do I believe that even “full-time Christian workers” like me are called to give generously to the Lord (Numbers 18:26-28)?
  • Do I do myself what I am asking my congregation to do (1 Timothy 4:12)? Do I give to please the Lord or to receive acclaim from my parishioners (Matthew 6:1-4)?
  • Is my standard of living modest? Do I purposefully live at a level below that of my parishioners? Do I cheerfully give up my “right” to live comfortably (1 Corinthians 9:12)? If the people in my church emulated my giving level and stewardship of God’s resources, would that be a good thing?

    • 3. SOM-110 Theology of MoneySOM-110-01 Poverty & Prosperity: Which is the Christian Way?This class will examine two common Christian beliefs regarding money & seek to find a Biblical balance between the two.

    • 6. Mga Tanong• Dapat ba yumaman ang mga tao ng Diyos?
    • 7. • Is material wealth or achievement or fame or victory or success an indication of Gods reward or approval of men?• If so, then He is an evil God, for history is full of successful madmen & prosperous despots. During their rise to power & the height of their regimes, surrounded by material wealth, was God on the side of Hitler & other butchers of history?• Is God also on the side of wealthy cultists, dishonest business executives, immoral rock stars, & ruthless loan sharks?• If wealth is a dependable sign of Gods approval, & lack of wealth his disapproval, then Jesus & Paul were on his blacklist, & the Mafia is the apple of his eye.

    • 10. Asceticism (Poverty Theology)• wealth is wrong & poverty right• voluntary poverty is a special class of moral excellence.• characterized by the denial of the flesh, – especially in the form of basic material pleasures (e.g., food, shelter, possessions). – proponents subject themselves to poverty for theological reasons— • the imitation of Christ (Colossians 1:24), • the conflict between Spirit & flesh (Galatians 5:16-26), etc.• Historically, ascetics have done things like renouncing material possessions, begging for food, living in solitude, even beating their own bodies.• At its worst, asceticism is accompanied by an unbiblical merit theology. At its best, it is a spiritual discipline undertaken in response to the gospel of grace. grace
    • 11. Word-Faith Movement (ProsperityTheology)• "Prosperity Theology" or "Health-and-Wealth Gospel" or "the Word-Faith movement"• It is God’s will for all Christians to experience earthly prosperity.• If one has adequate faith then the Lord will bless that person with good health & plenty of money.• If in faith one “sows” a financial gift to a Christian ministry, then that person is guaranteed to “reap” a hefty financial return for himself.• If on the other hand one is suffering sickness or poverty, it is due to a failure of faith on that person’s part.
    • 12. Theology of Stewardship (Katiwala)The biblical data on stewardship can be organized into 9 “theological topics.”
    • 13. 1. The Sacred/Secular Distinction• All of life is spiritual, including the use of money, because God is involved in it. There are philosophies that separate reality into “spiritual” & “material” spheres, but Christianity is not one of them. The Bible covers the waterfront of human life because the gospel of God’s redemption covers the waterfront of human life. In the words of Scripture, God is reconciling all things to himself through Christ (Colossians 1:20).
    • 14. 2. Kayamanan.• Money itself is morally neutral, a medium for the exchange of goods & services.• Because of sin in our attitudes toward money, lots of it is spiritually dangerous.• Wealth makes it hard for a person to enter the kingdom of God (Lk 18:24) because people are so strongly tempted to love it (1Ti 6:10).• Sin lies in a person’s attitude toward & use of wealth, not in the possession of it.• We are to be content with the wealth God gives us, not anxious to have more.
    • 15. 3. Kasaganaan.• The Bible teaches that there is … – a general connection between faithfulness to God & prosperity in this life (Pr 12:21), – but not a one-to-one correspondence (Ps 73:1-14).• There is a connection between generosity & prosperity (2Co 9:6) which exists for the purpose of further generosity (2Co 9:11). To those who give generously, God gives more.• But what He gives is seed, which is meant to be re- sown.
    • 16. 4. Kahirapan.• There are several reasons why God allows poverty (1Sa 2:7).• Some kinds of poverty are directly related to our own behavior (De 28:48, Pr 14:23). Others simply happen to us, & many of these cases are manifestly unjust.• Therefore, while no human life is worth more or less than any other (Ex 30:15), the poor do have a special place in God’s affections (Lk 6:20), because God is not blind to the unjust economic realities of the world (Ps 140:12). Even the Lord Jesus Himself was poor, & Christians should not consider it a dishonor to be poor in this life (Lk 9:58).
    • 17. 5. Pagiging Katiwala.• God is the rightful owner of everything (Psalm 24:1)• We are stewards or caretakers of His world, responsible to do with it what He wants done. – ecology, – physical fitness, – personal finance, – use of one’s abilities – the gospel itself – financial generosity – Mt 6:19-21
    • 18. 6. Christian Motivation for Giving• Apostolic command (2Co 8:7)• The promise of reward (Lk 12:33)• It is a natural response to the gospel of God’s grace.• We should offer ourselves as sacrifices to Him (Ro 12:1)• In part by giving our money (2Co 8:8-9).• We do not give fearfully in order to receive God’s grace, but joyfully because we have already received God’s grace.• All Christians – not just the wealthy – are called to practice radical gospel generosity.
    • 19. 7. The Role of Giving in Salvation• Salvation is utterly & completely a gift of God, accomplished by Jesus on our behalf.• Giving does not secure God’s favor, because our very best acts fall far short of God’s holiness.• The gospel changes us causing us to practice generosity (& other good works) out of thanksgiving to & love for God (Eph 2:10).• A person’s giving does not in any way determine his salvation but is an excellent indicator that he is saved (Mt 25:31-46).
    • 20. 8. Public Giving.• Jesus commands us to do our giving in secret out of concern for our motivation, whether we give to be praised by men or to please God (Mt 6:1-4).• The Scriptures also illustrate that Christian giving can sometimes be a public event (Ac 4:34-37), provided we “give out loud” in order to praise God & encourage others, avoiding possible abuses.• The church is responsibility for the spiritual growth of its people (Ga 6:1-5), including their use of money (2Co 8:7). That makes it right to talk about giving in the church. Pastors should preach about giving (Ac 20:27), & that public testimonies of generosity can be a fitting way to edify the church (2Co 8:1-5, 9:2).
    • 21. 9. The Tithe & Christian Freedom• The tithe is the predominant benchmark of giving in the Old Testament (De 14:22-29, 26:1-19, Mal 3:8).• In the New Testament, the tithe is overshadowed by freewill giving in response to the gospel (2Co 9:7). – “Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion.”• If the tithe still applies today, it is only as the starting point of Christian giving.
    • 22. Kayamanan sa Biblia
    • 23. 1. Ang yaman ay hindi masama.• Genesis 13:2 – Abraham had great wealth• Job 42:10 – God once again blessed Job with material possessions• De 8; 28; Pr 22:2; Ec 5:19 – wealth is seen as evidence of Gods blessing• Believers are not to trust in it. – Prov. 11:4; 11:28; Jer. 9:23; 1 Tim. 6:17; James 1:11; 5:2
    • 24. 2. Ang mga mayayaman ay napapahamakdahil sa paraan ng pagkamit ng kanilangyaman• Amos 4:11; 5:11 – injustice of obtaining wealth through oppression or fraud.• Micah 6:1 – the unjust scales & light weights with which Israel defrauded the poor• Neither condemned wealth• they only denounced the unjust means by which it is sometimes achieved.
    • 25. 3. Ang mga Kristiyano ay dapat isipin kunganong pwedeng maging epekto ng yaman sakanilang buhay.• Proverbs 30:8-9 & Hosea 13:6 – wealth often tempts us to forget about God.• Ecclesiastes 2 & 5 – people who are wealthy cannot really enjoy their wealth.• Proverbs 28:11 & Jeremiah 9:23 – wealth often leads to pride & arrogance.
    • 26. • The Bible does not condemn those who are wealthy.• But it does warn us that if God blesses us with wealth, we must keep our priorities straight & guard against the seductive effects of wealth.
    • 27. Biblical View of Poverty The Bible classifies the causes ofpoverty into 4 different categories.
    • 28. 1. Paniniil at Pandaraya.• Pr 14:31 – Ang umaapi sa mahirap ay humahamak sa Maykapal, ngunit ang matulungiy nagdudulot ng karangalan.• 22:7 – Ang mahirap ay nasa kapangyarihan ng mayaman, ang nangangailangan ay alipin ng nagpapahiram.• 28:15 – Nakakayamot ang asawang masalita tulad ng ulan na ayaw tumila.
    • 29. 2. Kasamaang palad, pag-uusig opaghuhusga.• Job 1:12-19 – Sinabi ni Yahweh kay Satanas, "Kung gayon, gawin mo nang lahat ang gusto mong gawin sa kanya, huwag mo lamang siyang sasaktan." … Isang araw … dumating kay Job ang isa niyang tauhan. Sinabi nito, "Kasalukuyan po naming pinang- aararo ang mga baka at nanginginain naman ang mga asno, nang may dumating na mga Sabeo. Kinuha …
    • 30. 2. Kasamaang palad, pag-uusig opaghuhusga.• … po nila ang mga baka at mga asno at pinatay pa po ang aking mga kasama. Ako lang po ang nakatakas upang magbalita sa inyo." Hindi pa ito nakakatapos sa pagbabalita nang may dumating na namang isa. Sinabi naman nito kay Job, "Tinamaan po ng kidlat ang mga tupa at mga pastol at namatay lahat; ako lang po ang nakaligtas upang magbalita sa inyo." Hindi pa ito halos tapos magsalita …
    • 31. 2. Kasamaang palad, pag-uusig opaghuhusga.• … nang may isa na namang dumating. Ang sabi nito, "Sinalakay po kami ng tatlong pangkat ng mga Caldeo. Kinuha nila ang lahat ng kamelyo at pinatay ang aking mga kasama. Ako lang po ang nakatakas upang magbalita sa inyo." Hindi pa rin ito halos tapos magsalita nang may dumating na namang isa at nagsabi, "Habang ang mga anak po ninyo ay nagkakainan at nag- iinuman sa bahay …
    • 32. 2. Kasamaang palad, pag-uusig opaghuhusga.• … ng panganay nilang kapatid, hinampas po ng napakalakas na hangin ang bahay at bumagsak. Nabagsakan po sila at namatay lahat. Ako lang po ang natirang buhay upang magbalita sa inyo."
    • 33. 2. Kasamaang palad, pag-uusig opaghuhusga.• Ps. 109:16 – Pagkat mga taong iyoy wala namang natulungan, bagkus pa ang mahirap inuusig, pinapatay.
    • 34. 2. Kasamaang palad, pag-uusig opaghuhusga.• Isa. 47:9 – Ngunit isang araw, sa loob lamang ng isang saglit, anumang salamangka o mahika ang iyong gawin, mangyayari ang dalawang bagay na ito: Mawawala ang iyong asawa at ang iyong mga anak!• Lam. 5:3 – Ang aming mga amay pinatay ng mga kaaway; kayat aming mga ina, wala nang kaagapay.
    • 35. 3. Katamaran, kapabayaan, atkasibaan.• Pr 10:4 – Ang kamay na tamad ay tiyak na magdarahop, ngunit magbubunton ng yaman ang kamay na masinop.• Pr 13:4 – Ang tamad ay nangangarap ngunit hindi natutupad, ang hangarin ng masikap ay laging nagaganap.
    • 36. 3. Katamaran, kapabayaan, atkasibaan.• Pr 19:15 – Ang matalino ay nagdaragdag ng kaalaman, ang may unaway namumulot pa ng karunungan.• Pr 20:13 – Matulog ka nang matulog at ikay maghihirap, ngunit maganda ang iyong bukas kung ikay magsisikap.• Pr 23:21 – Pagkat silay masasadlak sa kahirapan, at darating ang panahong magdadamit ng basahan.
    • 37. 4. Ang kultura ng kahirapan.• Proverbs 10:15 says, "The ruin of the poor is their poverty."• Survival •Enabling – Health -Income – Nutrition -Employment – Basic Services -Education• Security – Shelter – Peace & Order

    • 39. Buhay Christiano• Daniel – secretary of state in pagan administrations – an upper-middle-class lifestyle• Ezekiel – a middle-class lifestyle• Jeremiah – lower-class lifestyle.
    • 40. Stewardship Principles John Maxwell
    • 41. The “Who’s in Charge” PrincipleGod’s the owner, I am the manager• Ang pagiging mabuting tagapamahala ay nag- uumpisa sa pagtanto sa lahat ng bagay na meron tayo ay mula sa Diyos at pagmamay-ari ng Diyos.• Psalm 24:1 – “The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains, the world, and those who dwell in it.”• Kung pagmamay-ari lahat ng Diyos, ano ang gagawin ko dito? Ang tagapamahala ay ang taong walang pag-aari ngunit may responsibiIidad kahit saang bagay.
    • 42. The “Give & Grow” PrinciplePracticing stewardship produces growth• Ang pagsasanay na maging mabuting tagapamahala ay nag-uunlad sa mga tao na: – find their spiritual gifts (1Co 12), – increase their faith (Mal 3:10), – become spiritually sensitive (Mal 3:8-10), – be fruitful in God’s Kingdom (Mt 25:14-30), – receive blessings from God (Mal 3:10-12), – be a blessing to others (Ga 6:10), & – make a lasting contribution to God (Mt 6:20).
    • 43. The “Give & Grow” PrinciplePracticing stewardship produces growth• Most people say, “When I feel good I’ll do it. When I have more I’ll give it.” Successful people say, “I’ll do it, then I’ll feel good. I’ll give, then I’ll have more.” Teaching stewardship is more than raising money; it is God’s way of raising Christ followers.• Ang pagtuturo ng pagiging mabuting tagapamahala ay higit pa sa pag-iipon ng pera: Paraan ito ng Diyos upang dumami ang tagasunod ng Diyos.
    • 44. The “Do it Now” PrincipleStewardship deals with our present resources• The person who waits to do a great deal of good at once will never do anything” (Samuel Johnson).• “If I had a million dollars I would give it all to the church.”• “He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much” (Lu 16:10).• That principle has shown time & time again that it’s not how much we have of the world that dictates our generosity toward God, but how much God has of us.
    • 45. The “River” PrincipleOur life is to be like a river, not a reservoir• “Ibibigay ng diyos sa atin ang alam Niyang dadaloy sa pamamagitan natin.”• Ang pinaka mahalaga sa pagiging katiwala ay pakikipag-sundo na may tiwala. Pinapaubaya lamang ng mga may may-ari ang pangangalaga kung dadaloy ang tiwala mula sa kanila papunta sa mga katiwala.• Maisasakatuparan lang natin ang stewardship bilang batayan sa pamumuhay kung tayo’y maging karapat-dapat na katiwala ng mga ari-ariang ipinagkatiwala sa atin ng Diyos at hindi sa pagiging sakim sa pagtanggap ng mga bagay-bagay.

    • 62. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• One biblical truth about giving is that people generally give at the level at which they observe their leaders giving (e.g., 1 Chronicles 29). Generosity begets generosity when people see generous models in the context of community. So the most critical question you need to address before approaching others about giving within your church is:
    • 63. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Talaga bang naniniwala ako at ginagawa na mas mapalad ang magbigay kaysa sa tumatanggap?
    • 64. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Ginagawa ko ba sa sarili ko ang sinsabi kong gawin ng aking kongregasyon (1 Timothy 4:12)? Ginagawa ko bang regular ang aking pagbibigay ng suporta para sa gawain ng Diyos?• Nakakaramdam ba ako ng kaligayahan pag nagbibigay ako sa simbahan at sa ano mang mahalagang gawain ng Diyos (2 Corinthians 8:1-2)?
    • 65. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Nagbibigay ba ako ng may pag-uumapaw na pag-ibig kay Hesus at may pagpapasalamat sa lahat ng pagsasakripisyo nya sa akin (2 Corinthians 8:9)?• Naniniwala ba ako na ang pagbibigay para sa patuloy na gawain para kay Kristo ay ang pag-iipon ng aking walang haggang kayamanan sa kalangitan (Matthew 6:19-21)?
    • 66. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Naniniwala ba ako na ang pagbibigay ay gamot sa paghahangad ng materyal na bagay at pag-aalis ng hangarin ng pera sa aking puso? Naglilingkod ba ako sa Diyos o sa pera (Matthew 6:24)?• Anong percent ng aking mga natatanggap ang binibigay ko para sa Kaharian ng Diyos ? Paano ito maihahambing sa born–again believer’s na nagbibigay ng 3.5 percent? Paano ito maihahambing sa pamantayan ng ikapu ng mga taga Lumang Tipan?
    • 67. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Naniniwala ba ako na ang Bibliya ay di tungkol sa Spiritwal na bagay lamang bagkus tungkol sa lahat ng bagay kasama ang pera? (Colossians 1:20)?• Naniniwala ba ako na kahit full-time Christian workers tulad ko ay tinawag upang magbigay ng maluwag para sa Panginoon(Numbers 18:26-28)?
    • 68. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Ginagawa ko ba sa sarili ko ang sinasabi ko na gawin ng aking kogregasyon (1 Timothy 4:12)?• Nakakalugod ba ako sa Panginoon? O tumatanggap ng papuri mula sa mga alagad ng Diyos? (Matthew 6:1-4)?
    • 69. Am I Doing What I Tell MyCongregation to Do?• Ang pamantayan ba ng aking pamumuhay ay disente? Layunin ko bang mamuhay sa mas mababa pa sa antas ng mga alagad ng Diyos? Masaya ba ako na ibigay ang karapatan kong mamuhay ng kumportable (1 Corinthians 9:12)?• Kung ang mga tao sa aking simbahan ay gumaya sa antas ng mga mapagbigay na maglilingkod, magiging magandang bagay ba yun?
