Money Talks

DEFENSE_5

Watch a recap of this last week’s video here

•       If “Money talks,” what does your money say about you? What piece of budget takes the most of your spending?
•       Which is more valuable to you: your time, your money, your comfort, your space, or your stuff?
•       “For the love of money is a root of all kind of evil…” how have you seen people distracted by their pursuit of wealth?
•       How long do you think it would take you to spend $1million? What would be the first thing you would do with the money? How much would you give away?
•       How important is giving to your family? In our video, Frank gave, but he only gave a small percent of his wealth. Most of his money was spent on what he wanted. Regardless of your income, it is easy to spend money on yourself. How do you combat that urge?
•       The Macedonians in 2 Corinthians 8 begged to be able to give. Imagine how our church would be different if people begged to give. Describe one area of our church that would benefit by us being more generous:
•       How does your faith have to grow for you to be able to be more generous?

When we read in Genesis 4, we see that Cain gave some of this crops, but Abel gave his first-born and his best sheep as a gift to God.  Abel gave a gift that was accepted by God.  

Whose giving does our life reflect?   Do you give gifts like Abel?  If your answer is not yet, here is a resource to help you begin to spend your money differently.
