How can we honor God with what we do when we are struggling to make ends meet and to find enough time in the day?
Does choosing to follow Jesus mean just giving up a little of our "extra" in the offering plate, or something more?
Are we willing to invest what is important to us, in order to achieve what is most important?
Ever thrown a party because you invested someone else's money wisely?
How can we make sure that we are ready and able to produce good things in our lives?
Have you ever considered the difference between "giving" and "sharing"?
Are our offerings acceptable to a holy God?
If we are concerned about what people think when we give, we're probably giving for the benefit of the wrong person. If we judge other people in the same way, we can rob them of joy, as well.
Money solves so few of the most important problems in life. Could we use it to address situations where it can actually help?
In our walk on earth, there are not only ways that we can "get a life", but also still better ways to really start living.
I like to acquire "stuff", but how do we focus our efforts on the use of it for lasting good, rather than just the accumulation of it.
We know how to ask for God to give us more. Have we considered asking Him to not give us too much?
Earning enough to take care of our needs and our family is honorable. If we want more than that, though, what are our motives?
The church wasn't meant to be a place that we just go to be spiritually fed. The early church was an example of sharing, in very practical ways.
