Matthew 6:19-34

*Take time to study this passage this week and go further in depth and further understand God has to say to you

How does God view Money? 

Such as being parents, our children are not truly not ours! We do not OWN them! They are Gods children, so we have to understand that this is Gods precious gift to us to allow us to raise and care for and bring up for Gods glory. As with money, it can be a source of stress, weather you have too little or too much. Yes, even with too much. Money is the root of tension, fighting and stressors in the home. Having more doesn’t make it better and ease up whatever tension or heart issues may be in the home. Jesus talked more about money than he did Heaven and Hell combined! 

“More money, more problems.” – Michael Scott

God give us the gifts to use and allows us to make money, he is the source of good things. Does it mean that all good will come, no, but life is not without trials and tribulations. But He is our maker, our Father in Heaven and will lead us in Love! The gifts we obtain are loaned to us from God, temporarily, and we expected to manage wisely! 

Big idea: God has called us to be wise managers of everything he’s given us, including money. 
Choose HEAVENLY INVESTMENTS(VS 19-21)

Matthew 6:21 – “Where your treasures are, there your heart lies also.” Basically where you spend your money, that is where your heart lies! Nothing that is tangible will last. Why do we pour all our time and effort and money into things that will not last and we will be leaving behind. What if we use our home form Godly measures? Life Group / Bible study, open the word of God and do life with community. Use your resources, such as giving 10%, tithe! The church is used for mandated for making disciples for all nations. That is the only organization where it would be appropriate to take your 10% of your income. Ask God for help! Ask Him to help grow in your fund so that you may give more and bless more. It’s not always about money! Time, energy and resources. How are you spending yours for impact for eternity? We can’t pay our way to Heaven. 
Maintain HEAVENLY FOCUS. (VS 22-24)

We have to be able to see clearly and focus on Heaven. Heavenly focus determines our spiritual health. Are you focused on the day to day? Focusing on Hod and His plans for you (us) is being obedient and share and demonstrate the love of God. Be an avenue for light for those still in the dark! 

The LOVE of money is the root of all evil. They destroy their lives! It becomes a train wreck and their focus is not concerted on God and what He has for us. 

We are unable to focus on more than one thing at a time. “You cannot serve God and money!” Amen! Focus on Heaven and everything will work itself out. You cannot have two masters. You’re either serving God or Gods enemies! 

Trust your HEAVENLY FATHER (VS 25-34)

Sacrifice…. sometimes you invest a lot of time, energy and resources into God, we are serving our purpose! We are not to worry about what we will or will not have for God will take care of this for us! God is for us, not against us, and we will be seen by Him and He will take care of us! God knows what I NEED! It’s not about what I want, it’s about needs! Pursue God and demonstrate the Kingdom of Heaven! Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness and He will be sure to focus on us and our needs! Don’t be anxious about today, don’t worry about tomorrow! Focus on God! Take a leap of Faith! Follow what God has asked if you, sacrifice, test, and see what God will do for you! 


* Invest in Heaven – advance the Kingdom of Heaven!! 

* Live by Faith

“”Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. “The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life? And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is alive and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”

– ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:19-34‬‬
“Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”

– ‭‭James‬ ‭1:17‬‬
