God does not want to make our lives easy, He wants to make them fruitful!
Everything we have belongs to God. We are temporary managers.
Stewardship is an opportunity and a responsibility
We will be expected to give an account
Shifting your view of God will also shift your view of “your” possessions
spending to saving
► be content with what you have
saving to giving
► you cannot out-give God
giving to blessing
► when giving passes through the lens of grace, it becomes generosity
► Do I see other people’s stuff and become critical or bored with my own?
► Do I buy compulsively without first thinking of my budget or my need?
► Is my circle of need getting bigger?
► Do I complain a lot about how much I make?
► Do I feel self conscious when I am around rich people?
► Do I give 10% of my income to the church?
► Does it annoy me when a pastor starts talking about money?
