I felt today's sermon was very enlightening. Pastor Dave Crandall delivered a very powerful message with the central theme - Another Year, Another Dollar. Here's some highlights from his presentation.
Money Isn't The Issue, Godliness Is!
Proverbs 28:19-20 (NLT): "Hard workers have plenty of food; playing around brings poverty. The trustworthy will get a rich reward. But the person who wants to get rich quick will only get into trouble."
In my opinion, this says, "If your focus is wrong, your goal will be wrong."
Here's another great idea from his sermon.
Enjoy your rich rewards!
Colossians 3:23-25 (NLT): "Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you inheretance as your reward, and that the Master you are serving is Christ. But if you do what is wrong, you will be paid back for the wrong you have done. For God has no favorites."
Here's what I get from this, if your focus is on Godliness, understand the rewards that will be reaped. Overall, the idea behind the theme is that you can have sound finances and live in God's light.
