Money Matters (notes & video resource)

Our Crowded House event this past month focused on trusting God with our finances.  You can watch the video of Rick Schurt’z talk here.

Here are some of the notes from the message:

Money is the answer for everything.  True or False?

See Ecclesiastes 10:19

What do we do with this statement? Always look at the context and interpret Scripture with Scripture.

According to Jesus in Matthew 6:24: “We cannot serve both God and money.”

Another way to understand Eccl. 10:19 is to realize that all endeavors involve a budget even the good things in life.  ex. an orphanage, art, etc.. Name your cause, mission, etc. and funding is necessary.

According to Luke 4:18-19, Jesus was a freedom fighter and liberator!  This is also the role of the Church.

We can close the gap between what God calls us to become and what we are actually experiencing.

In a world in which 1 in 10 people are living without food and 3,900 kids die daily due to waterborne diseases. There are a lot of needs we could meet when we work together.  This is the power of lots of people giving together and serving together. We can accomplish more together than we can on our own.

The heart of God bursts for the needs of the world, and He wants us to be a part of that in a significant way!
Some of us may be unemployed, underemployed, or in debt and struggling, but Jesus said that God can be trusted and provide (see Matthew 6:25-33).

What keeps us from being generous?
When has someone been generous to you?
How can we demonstrate generosity this week with someone?
