The Stewardship Of Money

Deut. 8:11-18

We often focus on money when we discuss giving, probably because it is the one thing people find most difficult to part with. There are other resources which God has given to us that we can also give: our time, energy and talents. Whatever resource that we may have is given by God; we should never forget this. A sure way to keep us remembering the true source of our resources is to make personal covenant with God to be good stewards by giving. Majority of believers renege on paying tithes, which is one-tenth of one’s income or profit. Other areas of good stewardship is to give offering, which is a voluntary giving outside of tithe; to give to ministers of God so that their needs can be adequately met; to give towards projects in the house of God; to give to the needy around us. Giving is a matter of attitude and not a matter of being rich or poor. There is no poor person whom God has not blessed with some resources.

Point of Emphasis:        You are a good steward of resources under your care when you give as directed by God.

Prayer Point:            God, I make a covenant to be a good steward of all You have given me.

LA GESTION DE L’ARGENT

DEUT. 8 :11-18

Nous nous concentrons souvent sur l’argent quand il est question de donner, sans doute parce que c’est la seule chose dont les gens ont du mal à se séparer. Il y a d’autres ressources que Dieu nous a données que nous pouvons aussi consacrer: notre temps, nos énergies et nos talents. Toute ressource que nous puissions avoir nous a été donnée par Dieu; nous ne devons jamais oublier cela. Une façon sure de garder le souvenir de la véritable source  de nos ressources est de faire une alliance avec Dieu d’êtres de bons intendants en donnant. La majorité des croyants renoncent à payer la dîme qui représente un dixième de notre revenu ou profit. D’autres domaines de bonne intendance est de donner de l’offrande qui est un don volontaire en dehors de la dîme et de donner aux ministres de Dieu afin que leurs besoins soient adéquatement remplis, de faire des dons envers les projets entrepris dans la maison de Dieu, de donner aux nécessiteux autour de nous. Donner est une question d’attitude et non pas une question d’être riche ou pauvre. Il n’y a pas d’homme pauvre que Dieu n’a pas béni avec des ressources.

Point essentiel : Tu es un bon intendant des ressources dont tu as la charge quand tu donnes selon l’instruction de Dieu. .

Axe de prière : Dieu, je traite une alliance d’être un bon intendant de tout ce que tu m’as donné.
