Wealth and Witness

time or money by beatrice pitarch

Following is the outline of the message Pastor Scott Loo gave this morning on James 5:1-6.

  1. Use the wealth God has given us for life.
  2. Bring the power of money under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.  Money and the accumulation of wealth can given an affective experience of physical and emotional security.
  3. Give money away.  Giving will counteract the enslaving desire and power to accumulate, hoard and be greedy because giving is exactly the opposite of hoarding.
  • Offering is an expression of personal faith
  • Offering is a means of communal mission

Therefore:

  1. Give money away
  2. Give without seeking power
  3. Give money away anonymously.

Thanks Pastor Scott!
