New Testament Lesson: I Timothy 6:6-10, 17-19 (Be generous and willing to share)
Gospel Lesson: Matthew 6:19-34 (Treasures in heaven)
Money can be very deceptive, leading us to put our trust in wealth instead of in Jesus. That’s why God asks us to regularly give generous offerings to Him, to exercise our faith in Him by giving away our wealth regularly. God teaches us how to give:
- Cheerfully, sacrificially, regularly, proportionately – and to give those offerings to Him first, before spending on ourselves.
