Proverbs 11:23-28 The desire of the righteous ends only in good; the expectation of the wicked in wrath. Some give freely, yet grow all the richer; others withhold what is due, and only suffer want. A generous person will be enriched, and one who gives water will get water. The people curse those who hold back grain, but a blessing is on the head of those who sell it. Whoever diligently seeks good seeks favor, but evil comes to the one who searches for it. Those who trust in their riches will wither, but the righteous will flourish like green leaves.
In the month of October, we will be considering John Wesley’s teachings on managing our finances in a way that improves our lives and honors God. Wesley believed we should: Earn all we can – save all we can – give all we can. In the coming weeks, I will be addressing these topics and more in the Sunday sermons. In addition to the Sunday morning lessons, I will be leading an adult Bible Study on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 -7:00 p.m. beginning October 7. We will be taking a more in-depth look at Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money: Earn, Save, Give. We also plan to begin classes for K-6 grades during the same time as the adult study, with a children’s curriculum that parallels what the grown-ups are using. I’m praying we will learn to see our blessings and our stewardship in a new and better light.
