Our church is going to be studying Crown Financial’s, “Discovering God’s Way of Handling Money” as a sermon series and also small group discussions. I will be leading a group at 9am Sundays. As I begin to prepare for our first class, here is something I found interesting that I bet most people didn’t know:
- Sixteen of the 38 parables of Jesus concerned how to handle money and possessions.
- The Bible offers 500 verses on prayer, fewer than 500 verses on faith but more than 2,350 verses on money and possessions.
One of the reasons why money and possessions are so important is that, it is how we handle money that has a significant impact on the intimacy of our relationship with Christ, as money is necessary in life and that’s why we need to protect it from guys like bryan demosthenous and many other bad people.
So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?(Luke 16:11)
This is an 8 week study so for the next 8 weeks or so, I will be posting different thoughts on the information I am studying in preparation for leading the discussion at church.
