Show me the coin used for paying the tax." They brought him a denarius, and he asked them, "Whose portrait is this? And whose inscription? Caesar's," they replied. Then he said to them, "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's."

Recognize God As The Owner - the world is mine, and all that is in it. (PS 50:12b NIV) Give And Expect God To Bless The Right Attitude - Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. ( 2 Cor 9:6 NIV) We Give Because We Are Grateful Give The First Part Of All - Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; (Prov 3:9 NIV) How Much Should You Give? 10%? 20% ? 90%?: Lev 37:30 A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the LORD; it is holy to the LORD. (Lev 27:30 NIV)

63 Giving And Sharing Principles

Giving And Sharing Principles

How & When To Give - With, Planning And Premeditation - Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Cor 9:7 NIV) Give Weekly - I Cor 16:2 On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income, saving it up, so that when I come no collections will have to be made. (NIV) Giving Weekly Yields a Blessing Weekly. Give Proportionately- Luke 12:48 From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked. (NIV) Have You Been Given Much? How Much Is Expected Of You?

Sometimes God Asks Us To Give Sacrificially - Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a fraction of a penny. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, "I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything-- all she had to live on. (Mk 12:41-43 NIV)

The Bottom Line: Give Cheerfully And Generously Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. (2 Cor 9:6,7 NIV)

Psalm 9:6-8 NLT You put us in charge of everything you made, giving us authority over all things the sheep and the cattle and all the wild animals, the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents. God the Creator put us in charge of managing His creation We are His managers (stewards) What is expected of a steward?

134 Step 2 - I Manage (Parable Of The Talents)

Step 2 - I Manage (Parable Of The Talents)

Mat 25:14-30 NIV ""Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his property to them. To one he gave five talents of money, to another two talents, and to another one talent, each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. The man who had received the five talents went at once and put his money to work and gained five more. So also, the one with the two talents gained two more. But the man who had received the one talent went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master's money. After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. The man who had received the five talents brought the other five. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with five talents. See, I have gained five more. His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness! The man with the two talents also came. 'Master,' he said, 'you entrusted me with two talents; see, I have gained two more. His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness! Then the man who had received the one talent came. 'Master,' he said, 'I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. So I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you. His master replied, 'You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest. Take the talent from him and give it to the one who has the ten talents.For everyone who has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.'"

136 Step 3 - God Provides

Step 3 - God Provides

Mat 6:25 NIV ""Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes?" Mat 6:27 NIV "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life ? Mat 6:31-34 NIV "So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'" "For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them." "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."
