If you were raised around the church you have heard these words hundreds of times. We hear them and I wonder if we really know what to do with them. We seek after so many different things in an attempt to honor this command from Jesus. As we head toward Easter we will dwell for this one Sunday on where God is in the midst of our journey to follow Him.
Scripture Reference: Mark 8:31-38
God owns everything, we are just stewards. As such, everything in our lives is to come into conformity with God’s will and ways. For the Christian, there is no division between secular and sacred. Today we look at our use of money… How do we spend it? How do we give it? How do we save it? Every aspect of our decisions here are spiritual.
Scripture References: Matthew 6: 19-21 and II Corinthians 9: 6-15
