To be honest, I'm no good to give a teaching of this topic. This is the week 3 of 4 week series called "overwhelmed" by Fox River Christian Church. It was compelling and appropriate to share it at Thanksgiving. Bottom line: Whenever overwhelmed there will be a few critical decisions to make.
1. Give thanks or not
Bible says "Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
2. Content or not
Bible says "I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances." (Philippians 4:11-12)
3. Steward/manage well or not
Pastor Guy said All that we have results from God's provision either directly or indirectly. We are to manage wisely.
4. Give or not
The decision is clearly yours and here is the take home point: Giving activates the working of God in our financial affairs. God blesses us through our giving. None has given themselves into financial ruin, many have given themselves out.
I have also heard that in order to be rich one'd give all his/her money away, which not many of us can reach, maybe that's why so many of us are not free, not content, not spiritually rich.
