HOW DO WE GET INTO TROUBLE WITH MONEY?

WHAT WE HOPE HAVING MORE WILL BRING:

- More SATISFACTION

Ecclesiastes 5:10 (NLT)

10 Those who love money will never have enough. How meaningless to think that wealth brings true happiness!

- More SIGNIFICANCE

Luke 12:15 (NLT)

15 Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”

- More SECURITY

Add Notes

Ecclesiastes 5:11-17 (NLT)

11 The more you have, the more people come to help you spend it. So what good is wealth—except perhaps to watch it slip through your fingers!

12 People who work hard sleep well, whether they eat little or much. But the rich seldom get a good night’s sleep.

13 There is another serious problem I have seen under the sun. Hoarding riches harms the saver. 14 Money is put into risky investments that turn sour, and everything is lost. In the end, there is nothing left to pass on to one’s children. 15 We all come to the end of our lives as naked and empty-handed as on the day we were born. We can’t take our riches with us.

16 And this, too, is a very serious problem. People leave this world no better off than when they came. All their hard work is for nothing—like working for the wind. 17 Throughout their lives, they live under a cloud—frustrated, discouraged, and angry.

WHAT HAVING MORE REALLY BRINGS:

More WORRIES

- More PAIN IF LOST

GOD'S WAY TO AVOID FINANCIAL TROUBLE

1. GIVE back to God first.

Proverbs 3:9-10 (NLT)

9 Honor the Lord with your wealth
    and with the best part of everything you produce.
10 Then he will fill your barns with grain,
    and your vats will overflow with good wine.

Add Notes

2. SAVE for the future. 

Proverbs 21:20a (NLT)

21 The wise have wealth and luxury,
 but fools spend whatever they get.

Add Notes

3. PLAN your spending.

Proverbs 21:5 (NLT)

5 Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity,
    but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.

"When your outgo exceeds your income, your upkeep becomes your downfall." - Bill Earle

Add Notes

4. KEEP good records. 

Proverbs 27:23-24 (NLT)

23 Know the state of your flocks,
    and put your heart into caring for your herds,
24 for riches don’t last forever,
    and the crown might not be passed to the next generation.

Track: What I own, What I owe, What I earn, Where it goes.

Add Notes

5. ENJOY what you have. 

Ecclesiastes 6:9 (NLT) 

9 Enjoy what you have rather than desiring what you don’t have. Just dreaming about nice things is meaningless—like chasing the wind.

Ecclesiastes 5:19 (NLT) 

19 And it is a good thing to receive wealth from God and the good health to enjoy it. To enjoy your work and accept your lot in life—this is indeed a gift from God. 

Add Notes

Job 31:24-28 (NLT) 

24 “Have I put my trust in money

    or felt secure because of my gold?
25 Have I gloated about my wealth
    and all that I own?

26 “Have I looked at the sun shining in the skies,
    or the moon walking down its silver pathway,
27 and been secretly enticed in my heart
    to throw kisses at them in worship?
28 If so, I should be punished by the judges,
    for it would mean I had denied the God of heaven.

Add Notes

Matthew 6:33 (NLT) 

33 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

Support and Recovery

Rock Point Church is committed to come alongside you, through our Care Ministries, to help you reclaim the life God intended.
