Taking the Stew Out of Stewardship part 5

Join us today as Pastor CJ shares a message titled Taking the Stew Out of Stewardship part 5

  • People spend 50% of their time thinking about money according to one study
  • Money is the 2nd most talked about thing in the Bible (2nd only to love)
  • 2,350 verses in the Bible are related to money
  • 16 out of the 38 parables of Jesus in the bible are related to money
  • Malachi 3:7-12
  • When we return to the biblical tithe, we will be blessed
  • Maybe not financially but there are many ways God will bless us
  • Do you rob God? When we hold back our tithe that is exactly what we are doing
  • Is it possible to rob God and not be aware of it? Yes but we are still responsible
  • Tithe literally means means 10th
  • There are 3 types of tithes
    • levitical Tithe
      • Numbers 18:23-24
      • Tithe to support the work of the Lord and those in Ministry
    • Festival Tithe
      • Deuteronomy 12:4-7
      • Tithe to bring people together and promote unity
    • Poor Tithe
      • Deuteronomy 14:28-29
      • Tithe to help those less fortunate than you (benevolence fund)
  • Bible also talks about Offerings which are above and beyond our tithe (Exodus 25:1-2)
  • Some people say they can’t afford to give, but really you can’t afford NOT to give
