Money 101

February 6, 2012 — Leave a comment

What’s your ‘Game Plan’ for your money? Our Game Plan series continues here at Christ Church.  (Teaching audio and resources here.)
I want to recommend a wonderful, easy-to-read, biblical and inexpensive ($5.99 / 3.99 Kindle) resource by Randy Alcorn.  It is a new and thorough summary of much of his work on Christian Stewardship (of money and possessions.) It’s called Managing God’s Money.  You should have it!

We ended our worship with this hopeful challenge to the church and a prayer based on 1 Timothy 6:17-19 and Titus 2:14.  I’ll post them here:

Imagine a community of people
unattached to their ‘stuff!’

living creatively,
responsibly,
generously
in the world

so that everyone can see
the Living God!
________________

O Lord, may we who are rich in this world 
not not be haughty and arrogant;
May we not set our hopes on the uncertainty of riches;
but on YOU, the one who richly provides us with everything to enjoy.

We pray that we will always delight to do good, 
to be rich in good deeds,
to be generous and ready to share,
storing up treasure as a good foundation for the future,
so that we may take hold of that which is truly life!

We pray this in the name of Jesus who gave himself for us
to redeem us
 and to purify for himself a people
who are His very own,

eager and zealous to do what is good!
Amen.
