Everything we have here on earth belongs not to us, but to our God—and please believe that one day soon we will be held accountable for what's been entrusted to us! Today's parable here on Live in the Light discusses stewardship, one of the most important concepts in Scripture. Good insight here: If God is our Master, then money becomes our servant; but if God is not our Master, we become the servants of money. Heart check: which Master do you worship?
Matthew 6:21 tells us " where your treasure is, there will be your heart also". In today's message, God's word teaches us the importance of giving to his kingdom with both generosity and joy. In fact, the manner in which we give directly reflects the position and passion of our heart. Today as we further unpack the book of Malachi, God challenges us to test him with our tithes and offerings. Watch how lavishly he will pour out his blessings upon those who give generously! Indeed, he promises that when we invest unselfishly in his kingdom, grace and righteousness will abound!
Do you consider yourself a true Christ-follower? Are you living the 5G Life? In today’s message, our teacher, Pastor Robbie Symons, reminds us that it was Jesus who said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive,” (Acts 20:35). To call ourselves true disciples, we must give of self, through prayer, with love and by proper stewardship of the blessings God has bestowed upon us—all for His glory. But hurry, loved ones. As we’ll hear today, there is no time to waste!
