This weekend we continued our series, Blessed! Matt spoke a great word on “It Starts with the Heart”. You can see Sunday’s message here. Also, if you weren’t able to join us this weekend and would like to give your regular tithe and offering, you can give online by clicking here.
Matthew 6:19-24, “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. 21 Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. “Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light. 23 But when your eye is bad, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is! 24 “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”(NLT)
GET THE JUNK OUT OF THE TRUNK
Ephesians 4:31-32, “Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. 32 Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”(NLT)
GENEROSITY BREAKS THE GRIP OF SELFISHNESS AND PRIDE
The story from 1 Kings 17:8-16 teaches us several things…
1. The best time to give is when I don’t have enough .
2. I cannot out give God.
3. If I put God first He’ll take care of my needs.
4. I’m going to reap always more than I sow.
God wants us to GIVE with the right HEART ATTITUDE!
