The Pursuit of Transformation: The Stewardship of Possessions

In the conversation for Sunday, February 5, 2017, Pastor Stuart Nice shares with us that possessions, resources, and finances are an issue of the heart as much as it is about being financially responsible.  

The Stewardship of Possessions

Emotions of Resource Health

The Big Takeaways from Jesus

  1. There Is an Accounting
    "Everyone who has been given much, much will be required; and to whom they entrusted much, of him they will ask all the more." Luke 12:48, NASB
  2. Be Generous
    Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return." Luke 6:38, NASB
  3. Keep Your Heart in Eternity
    "Then He said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions." Luke 12:15, NASB

Sacred Reading

A note about the recording of the Sacred Reading:
The reader will pause between each of the four readings. The pauses have been left in the recording so that the listener can experience the rhythm of the gathering and even participate in the reading.

And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.
Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality, which through us is producing thanksgiving to God.
2 Corinthians 9:8, 10-11, NASB
