EGR - 9 - Sowing the Best/Finances Rev 5/26/11
Transcript of EGR - 9 - Sowing the Best/Finances Rev 5/26/11
“ Don't be deceived: God is not mocked. For whatever a man sows he will also reap (Galatians 6:7).
God wants us to be a “thermostat” not a ‘thermometer”.
God wants us to influence the lives of others positively.
2. Sow seed of integrity
Integrity – doing the right thing even when no one is watching
The more you hang out with God, the more you act like HIM.
3. Sow seed of Spirituality.
Serving God is our top priority. Serving God is our mainline not our sideline.
4.Sow Seed of Discipline
Discipline is to give your children direction, not to hurt them or create traumas.
Hebrews 12:8 (NLT)“If God doesn’t discipline you as he does all of his children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really his children at all.”
5.Sow a Correct Image.
We must believe that we are very precious to God, that God loves us and has good plans for us
“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered.” (Psalms 139:17)
What we speak, what we do and what we act will impact our lives and the lives of others.
Use Positive language and positive thinking at all times.
Ephesians 4:29 (NLT)“Don’t use foul or abusive language.
Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.”
1. Sow Seeds of Positive Attitudes
sowing good seed for your
Dear friend, I am praying that all is well with you and that your body is as healthy as I know your soul is
(3rd John 1:2).
1. God wants You To PROSPER
God wants you to be HEALTHY and WEALTHY
The Bible says,“…for Abraham was very rich in livestock, silver, and gold” (Genesis 13:2).
“In this way Jacob became very wealthy. He had many flocks, slaves, camels, and donkeys” (Genesis 30:43).
“There was a man named Job who lived in the land of Uz. He was blameless, a man of complete integrity. He feared God and stayed away from evil. He had seven sons and three daughters. He owned seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred teams of oxen, and five hundred female donkeys, and he employed many servants. He was, in fact, the richest person in that entire area (Job 1:1-3).
Cause of man’s curse of poverty and sufferings:
"...and to Adam God said, "Because you listened to your wife and ate the fruit I told you not to eat, I have placed a curse on the ground. All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it. It will grow thorns and thistles for you, though you will eat of its grains. All your life you will sweat to produce food, until your dying day. Then you will return to the ground from which you came. For you were made from dust, and to the dust you will return" (Gen 3:17-19).
Our first parents listened to Satan.
2. Man and woman eat the forbidden fruit.
3. Ground is cursed, growing thorns and thistles.
4. Results: All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it.
2. How to Move from
Poverty to Prosperity
KNOW that you are redeemed from curse of poverty and sufferings.
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich” (2 Cor 8:9).
1. Jesus Obeys by giving Himself.
2. We must also Obey by Giving ourselves: Talent, Time & Money.
Giving of our money is done in two forms:
1. Tithes. What are tithes? These are ten percent (10%) of our income.
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so there will be enough food in my Temple. If you do," says the LORD Almighty, "I will open the windows of heaven for you. I will pour out a blessing so great you won't have enough room to take it in! Try it! Let me prove it to you!” (Mal 3:10).
2. Offerings. What are offerings? Are our giving over tithes. Anything you give above your tithes is offering to the Lord.
Conclusion: The Bible says,
“Happy are those who reject the advice of evil men, who do not follow the example of sinners or join those who have no use for God. Instead, they find joy in obeying the Law of the LORD, and they study it day and night. They are like trees that grow beside a stream, that bear fruit at the right time, and whose leaves do not dry up. They succeed in everything they do (Psalm 1:1-3).
