NEXT 2022 – Take a Step

“I will not place my trust in riches, but in Him who richly provides.”

1 Timothy 6:17a (NIV)
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

1 Timothy 6:18 (NIV)
Command them to DO GOOD, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.

If God has blessed you with MORE than you NEED, it is so that you can SHARE your abundance with those IN NEED.

Mark 12:41-44 (NIV)
Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. 42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. 43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”

1 Timothy 6: 18 (NIV)
Command them to DO GOOD, to BE RICH in GOOD DEEDS, and to be GENEROUS and willing to SHARE.
Give STRATEGICALLY & SACRIFICIALLY.

PRE-DECIDE and PICK a PERCENTAGE

We put GOD first by GIVING first.

Deuteronomy 14:23 (TLB)
The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives.

Tithing teaches me to put God first and increases my faith in God.


Just TAKE a STEP.

Be SYSTEMATIC not SPONTANEOUS.
 

SYSTEMS help us be SUCCESSFUL in every AREA of our LIVES.

1 Timothy 6:17–18 (NIV)
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share.


John 13:35 (NLT)
Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples.
