  • What would happen if I gave God one year?
  • Money tells the story of our hearts.
  • Money Talks

Matthew 6:21  //  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

  • If you’d like to change where your heart is, change where your money goes.

Matthew 6:24  //  “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

  • How can you know if your love for money competes with your love for God?
1. You think your money belongs to you.

Psalm 24:1 // The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.

2. Giving is what you do with your leftovers.
  • Stingy
  • Stealing
3. You think this sermon is stupid.

Deuteronomy 14:23 (TLB) // The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.

  • Me first living with a little giving

Luke 12:16-21  //  And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ 18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’ 20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ 21 “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

  • Consumption Assumption: The assumption that everything that comes my way is for my consumption.
