Jesus said, “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”

Matthew 25:40 NKJV


Our use of our money is a test. It is a part of the full picture of stewardship. Money is a master and very central to our lives. To the Christian our use of the money that has been given to us will reveal our true nature.

Money is neither good nor bad; it depends on how it is used.

Listen to these words from the book, Christ’s Object Lessons page 351:

“Money has great value, because it can do great good. In the hands of God's children it is food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, and clothing for the naked. It is a defense for the oppressed, and a means of help to the sick. But money is of no more value than sand, only as it is put to use in providing for the necessities of life, in blessing others, and advancing the cause of Christ.”

Here we see the real value of money: (1) Providing for the necessities of life; (2) Blessing others; and (3) Advancing the cause of Christ.

Appeal: Our offering today will go to assist our church in its ministry to our area. I believe this is a godly use of our funds.
