The importance of being a generous church

February 5, 2024

How important is our relationship and view of money and possessions? If we’re honest with ourselves, it is easy to get caught up in the pursuit of wealth and material possessions, but are we truly considering the impact of our actions on others, the church in Houston, TX, and on our spiritual growth?

The Call to Maturity

Paul's letter to the church in Philippians reminds us of the importance of humility, compassion, and selflessness in our interactions with others. It is not enough to simply accumulate wealth and possessions; we must also consider how we acquire them, what we do with them, and how we view them.

Three Realities to Consider

●    How You Get What You Have: Are we acquiringwealth and possessions through honest and fair means, or are we takingadvantage of others?

●    What You Do With What You Have: Are wehoarding our resources and neglecting the needs of others, or are we using whatwe have to bless and serve those around us?

●    How You View What You Have: Do we see ourwealth and possessions as gifts from God to be used for His glory, or do weview them as treasures to be hoarded for our own selfishdesires?

Why is it important toview money as God's tool?

Viewing money as God's tool reminds us that He is the ultimate provider and that we are called to use our resources tohonor Him, build the church, and be a blessing to others.
