Sermon Notes
Live Within Your Means ~ Luke 12:42-48 & Various Scriptures

The sermon in one sentence: Avoid the stranglehold of debt by living within your means so you can maximize generosity.

  • We are “stewards” of God’s resources (Luke 12:42-48)
    • We keep watch over what he has given and we use it wisely
    • We remember that all our money and resources belong to God, not to us
    • We maximize our wise use of resources to fulfill God’s purposes with our wealth
    • We minimize debt that hinders our wise use and generosity
  • To minimize debt and maximize generosity:
    • Maintain an attitude that you will avoid debt (Romans 13:8)
    • Adjust your lifestyle to avoid debt as much as possible (Proverbs 21:5)
    • Make a plan to pay off your existing debts as soon as possible (Psalm 37:21, Ecclesiastes 5:5)
    • Give more generously (Psalm 37:21)
