WHY DO SOME PEOPLE WALK AROUND WITH A “BA HUMBUG” ATTITUDE?

During this Christmas season it is really easy to "ba humbug" through it, and forget the point of it - to make Christmas and xmiss and miss out on what you really hoped this Christmas season to really be about. So during this series we want to take a step back and say, "This is actually about someone's birthday, and have we taken a step back to consider what HE wants?"

1.  We measure our wealth based on AWARENESS.

This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God. - Luke 12:21
 

2.  We forget we are MANAGERS - not owners of the resources we have been given.

So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? - Luke 16:11

KEY QUESTION:  Why has God TRUSTED me with so much?

Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God...They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others. - 1 Timothy 6:17-18

WHAT IS THE BIBLICAL PLAN FOR GIVING?

1. PRIORITY giving

2. PERCENTAGE giving

3. PROGRESSIVE giving.

Memory Verse:

Matthew 6:25 

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?
