SERIES PREVIEW: God Cares More About Your Money Than You Do.
By Matt Dawson
First thought – I doubt it!
Second thought – Why does He care?
In Paul’s letter to Timothy, he expresses the heart of why God cares so deeply about how we view and understand money.
“Tell those rich in this world’s wealth to quit being so full of themselves and so obsessed with money, which is here today and gone tomorrow. Tell them to go after God, who piles on all the riches we could ever manage—to do good, to be rich in helping others, to be extravagantly generous. If they do that, they’ll build a treasury that will last, gaining life that is truly life.” 1 Timothy 6:17-19 (MSG)
God’s ultimate desire for us is “LIFE THAT IS TRULY LIFE.” True life! Our current western culture makes many promises about life based on how much money we have & spend. However, our obsession with money, resources, wealth, and comfort actually keeps us from experiencing the life that God desires for us.
Did you know Jesus reference money more than He reference Heaven or Hell?
Did you know 40% of the Parables Jesus taught referenced how we view, understand, and use money?
Did you know in all of recorded scripture, there are over 500 verses that reference PRAYER & FAITH… but there are over 2,000 that reference money?
God DOES care MORE about your MONEY than you do.
Over the next several weeks at Journey, we’re going to discuss WHY He cares more about our money than we do.
We’re going to dive into Jesus teaching on why money is the chief competitor for our hearts (not Satan).
We’re going to break down the traditional views of tithes and offerings, financial blessing and curses, and if there is any truth to the prosperity teachings found in most American churches.
We’re going to discuss why money is a TOOL that brings freedom, or a TRAP that keeps us slave to fear!
There will be no special offerings, financial campaigns, or guilt trips given over money during this series. Our end goal is for you to better understand why “God cares MORE about your money than you do” and fully experience the “LIFE THAT IS TRULY LIFE” promised in His Word!
