Stewardship Series – Money
“My Money Talks”
Scripture: Excerpts from 1 Timothy 6
…godliness combined with contentment; does bring wealth, but it’s the rich simplicity of being yourself before God. Since we entered the world penniless and will leave it penniless, if we have bread on the table and shoes on our feet, that’s enough.
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.
But you, Timothy, …
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.
Overwhelming grace keep you!
Barb Smith-Morrison challenged us with Agur’s Prayer and Richard Rohr’s shadow boxing.
Prayer of Agur (Proverbs 30:7-9)
Two things I ask of you, O God,
take away my falsehood and lying,
make me neither poor nor wealthy,
but feed me with food I need, the food I need. For I know if I am full I’ll forget it comes from you; if I am hungry I’ll steal and curse your name.
So feed me with the food I need, the food I need. Two things I ask of you oh God.
