This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung continues our message series on Stewardship by examining two types of people based on their attitudes towards money. He also shares biblical principles that we each can apply to manage finances in a manner that glorifies God.
1. Most people feel that they are not rich and that they never have enough. The question is, when will we achieve contentment? Are you rich or poor? Why?
2. We need but simple things to live, so why do so many people feel that what they have is not enough? What do you think are the reasons for this? How can we be truly contented?
3. Paul offers three exhortations to the rich: (a) Do not be arrogant; (b) Trust in God; (3) Share your wealth. What are practical applications for these three points? How can we be humble? How do we trust God? How can we share our wealth?
4. What do you think of Jim Elliott’s statement: “He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose”? What is your response? What actions will you take?
