The truth about giving iii

  1. 1. The Truth About Giving God’s Dare to Give Scripturally
  2. 2. Most people view giving in a negative way Acts 20:35 The more you give the happier you will be!
  3. 3. One Thing You Lack Mark 10:17-22 1. A person can have everything else in his life completely in line with God’s word, but if his attitude toward money is wrong, he can still be lost. 2. Improper giving is on the same level as murder and every other sin!
  4. 4. God Says Much about Money The most frequently discussed subjects in all of the Scriptures There are 89 chapters in gospels and the subject of giving is discussed 123 times. The Bible talks more about money than it does about faith, repentance, confession, baptism, church organization and qualifications of elders and deacons all combined.

  6. 6. Money Makes a Miserable Master
  7. 7. Deceptive Dollars Matthew 13:22 Matthew 6:24 I Timothy 6:9-10

  10. 10. The First Principle of Stewardship The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey “Paradigm Shift” EVERYTHING BELONGS TO GOD! Proverbs 23:7 Psalms 50:9-12
  11. 11. Do Not Forget the Lord Deuteronomy 8:7-18 We think that we have money because we work hard, invest wisely or are frugal. Do not misunderstand: You will have more money if you work hard, invest wisely and are frugal than you would if you did not do those things. But you must understand that those are not the reasons you have money.
  12. 12. Do Not Forget the Lord Here is how you can know: Are there people in other countries right now who work harder than you do? Yet you will earn five times more in one year than they will earn in a lifetime. Why do you earn more? Is it because you work harder? No it is because God has placed you in a position where labor is more financially prosperous
  13. 13. Do Not Forget the Lord We should remember that with more blessings comes more responsibility, and it is more difficult for a rich man to go to heaven than for “a camel to go through the eye of a needle.”
  14. 14. Don’t Be a Rich Fool Luke 12:16-21 Malachi 3:8 Suppose you went to the bank and deposited $5000. Two weeks later you returned to the bank (after they had been using your money and asked to withdraw $500. The teller smiles at you, explains that the bank used all but $25 of it, and offers to give that to you. Would you be happy with that kind of stewardship? Yet that is how we treat God’s money!
  15. 15. How Much DOES GOD WANT?
  16. 16. Willing To Give It All Mark 10:17-22
  17. 17. Different Requirements for Different People Luke 19:1-10 Zacchaeus vs. Rich Young Ruler
  18. 18. 10 Percent? There is no record in the Bible where God ever accepted less than 10 percent from any of His followers Abraham (Gen. 14:20) Jacob (Gen. 28:22) Israel (Num. 18:24; Ex. 13:11-12; Lev. 19:9-10; Deut. 16:10)
