Rich at What Matters Most week three message from Pastor Chris Russell on December 3, 2017 at Community Church of Waterford, Goshen, Indiana. Why did God make us rich? 2 Corinthians 9:11 1 Timothy 6:18 God-honoring rich people give: 1. Strategically 2 Corinthians 9:7 Malachi 3:10a God-honoring rich people give… 1. Strategically -Tithing teaches me to put God first Deuteronomy 14:23b -Tithing increases my faith in God Malachi 3:10b God-honoring rich people give: 1. Strategically -Tithing teaches me to put God first -Tithing increases my faith in God 2. Sacrificially & Extravagantly Luke 21:1-3 People who desire to be God-honoring with their riches give strategically and they give sacrificially and extravagantly. Don’t be a below-average giver. Take God at His word that He will bless you when you put him first. Do what’s necessary to adjust your lifestyle to put yourself in a position to be obedient to God’s instructions on how to use your finances. Put yourself in the position that when you see opportunities come up that require additional giving above your 10% that you can step up to the plate and give with a joyful and grateful heart. Choose to be really, really good at being rich.
