Be Honest —

 

Be honest now.
1. Do you give God tip money, your coin leftovers?
2. Do you give according to how well the pastor’s message entertained you?
3. Do you give when you are moved by the way your emotions react?
4. Do you give but intend to give more when you get richer?
5. Do you give grudgingly, only because others are watching?
6. Or do you give your tithe and your offerings the way God gives to you?

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. (Luke 6:38, KJV)

Cheating Emails

Are you getting them too? Those scam guys and gals who want to swindle you out of your money?  They are using our hearts to get at our wallets.

They tell great sob stories, get rich quick schemes and use what ever else they can dream up. I joined  www.scambusters.org, a free ‘stop scams’ type of newsletter so that I won’t fall for the sad moans of the dishonest.

Apparently North Americans are the most susceptible.

Why is that? We have more than most so why do we chase after more?

Did you know that 53 out of every 100 people live on less than 2.00 a day? We are millionaires to the rest of the world and we still don’t think we have enough?

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we truly wanted more so that we could give more? Unfortunately that is not the truth of the matter.

“Oh my friends, enjoy your money. Make the most of it. Give none away. Enjoy it quickly for I can tell you, you will be beggars throughout eternity. Robert Murray M’Cheyne.

When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot Me  (Hosea 13:6)

Ouch!

You Will Want to Buy This Book!

Your Money God’s Way by Amie Streater

Our reviews are generally about 200 words. So far that’s been enough for me.I’ve never before appreciated a book so much that I wanted to write two reviews for it, just so I could use more words! This book is it.The solution? Buy the book- ASAP.This is tough love money talk from a pastor who cares about how God’s people handle money.
It is truth we all need to hear and it is not like any other money book you have read.
She tells us truth like this.
If you are just plain stupid with your money, it is not God’s fault.
If you aren’t grateful for what you have,you won’t be grateful for more.
How we use money is a barometer of our spiritual condition.
The problem is never money and the answer is always God.
Saying no to a controlling, manipulative person does not yield pleasant results. They will accuse you of lacking compassion, not caring and even question your salvation..all in the name of getting you to cough up assistance one more time. Buy the book. It will change your life..
I do wish it had a study guide to go along with it so easier taught.
