Sermon Notes
Plan Well ~ Various Scriptures

The sermon in one sentence: Wisely consider your finances in order to maximize your involvement in God’s purposes, because you belong to Jesus and everything you have is his.

  • Those who are wise “will count the costs” (Luke 14:27-33)
    • Jesus uses realities of money to illustrate the point: He is worth following and everything we have belongs to him
    • Therefore we should use our wealth to honor God
  • Four main purposes of money to help us love others well according to God’s will:
    • To provide for you and your family (1 Timothy 5:8)
    • To give help to those in need (Matthew 6:2)
    • To support the spread of the gospel (Philippians 4:10-19)
    • To enjoy life with family and friends (Ecclesiastes 9:7-10)
  • Three aspects of planning well in order to maximize your involvement in God’s purposes:
    • Budget wisely (Proverbs 13:16)
    • Spend wisely (Proverbs 21:17, 20)
    • Save wisely (Proverbs 6:6-11)

Sermon Notes
Stay Focused ~ 1 Timothy 6:6-10

The sermon in one sentence: Stay focused by remembering that wealth is temporary but godliness brings eternal gain.

  • Godliness provides the best gain, so pursue godliness with more passion than you pursue wealth (6:6, 9-10)
  • There is only a small amount that you need for life, so enjoy what you have and be content with the basics (6:6, 8)
  • Wealth is only temporary, so be wise with your wealth and don’t waste it by hoarding it (6:7)

Note: Everyone in attendance will receive a free copy of the book The Money Challenge: 30 Days of Discovering God’s Design for You and Your Money by Art Rainer (one per household)
