This week will will continue a mini-study on MONEY…

Last week we saw in the Book of Acts that new Christians in Antioch gave generously to a “famine relief fund” for Christian brothers and sisters in Jerusalem. This led us to our mini-study about giving, generosity, and money.

I want to tell you how much I appreciated all of you and how you received the message last week. These passages we are looking at show us God’s view of money and how we can change the way we think about it. I know that money is an emotional issue for all of us. But it can also be a powerful addiction that robs us of  our joy and a vibrant life with Jesus.

That’s why we need to talk about it. We need to look at God’s Word and see where he may want us to adjust our thinking.

Thanks for your willingness to allow me to lead us into the scripture in this. God is teaching me in this area and I believe he will teach you as well.

To prepare, you may want to review Malachi 3:8-10 (we looked at that last week). Then read 1 Timothy 6:6-10, 17-19; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15; and Matthew 6:19-34. We’ll probably cover 1 Timothy and 2 Corinthians tomorrow and look at Matthew 6 next week.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug
