  3. 3. 3 March 30 right after the morning worship. Lakeview voting precinct behind Lakeview Middle School on Cross Street. Plan to come, eat, and visit a while. No church Sunday Night
  4. 4. Attitude 4 Work Managing Giving God’s Plan for taking care of His people.
  5. 5. 5 We studied all that God says about working, and working with a godly attitude. We have studied much about taking care of God’s Provision. Now we will take a look in God’s Word to understand His desire for us to be generous. Generous with our time, talent, and money; All our resources.
  6. 6. 6 Jesus said that we must live by “every word” that proceeds from the mouth of God.” That includes John 3:16, and it includes Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, the whole Bible. Every Word of God is for our living.
  7. 7. 7 We must be careful to keep the right attitude. Some people see Scriptures on giving, and try to obligate God through giving. Giving to get is the worst attitude about giving. We don’t make deals with God. We obey Him because we love Him. We give because we love our Lord and His people.
  8. 8. 8 II Cor 9:6-7 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
  9. 9. 9 Luke 6:38 Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you mete withal it shall be measured to you again. With the same measure that you mete -- If we give generously, willingly, cheerfully, and lovingly People will give to us -- generously, willingly, cheerfully, and with love, when we have need.
  10. 10. 10 But if you give grudgingly out of a stingy heart; And you gripe about the need to give or do; Then God will not bless you for what you do give or do for others. God loves a cheerful giver.
  11. 11. 11 Matt 6:1-4 Take heed that ye do not your alms {good deeds} before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in Heaven. Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
  12. 12. 12 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth: That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret Himself shall reward thee openly. Matt 6:1-4
  13. 13. 13 Don’t make a show of giving. Give quietly and generously. Those who call a press conference to announce giving already have their reward.
  14. 14. 14 Prov 3:9-10 Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits (the first and best) of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. Give in faith, believing and trusting God for your own needs to be met. He won’t let you down.
  15. 15. 15 Malachi 3:7-10 Even from the days of your fathers ye are gone away from Mine ordinances, and have not kept them. Return unto Me, and I will return unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. But ye said, Wherein shall we return? Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed Me. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed thee?
  16. 16. 16 In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and prove Me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. Malachi 3:7-10 Have you ever felt like it was just impossible to have all that you need?
  17. 17. 17 Let God open the window. Work Health Hedge of protection
  18. 18. 18 1 Cor. 16:2 Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. Sunday is the that God set aside for the church to receive tithes and offerings. We are to give as God has prospered us. 1 Cor 8:12 For if there be first a willing mind, it is accepted according to that a man hath, and not according to that he hath not.
  19. 19. 19 Throughout my life I have seen God make the 90% do more than could be done with 100%. Income Expenses
  20. 20. 20 By faith in The Living God. Will God do what He says He will do? Take that leap of faith.
