{Week 6: Journey to Financial Freedom- Giving}


It Monday!!! And if you’ve been around here long enough you know that I LOVE ME SOME MONDAYS!!! I cannot say it enough, Mondays give me a blank slate. What did not work in previous weeks gets modified, tweaked, or thrown out the window. One thing’s for sure, things are always changing for the better around here.

How about you? Are you ready to start anew? Are you ready for a fresh start? If so, come along for this most amazing ride. It’s the journey which pushes you towards change and inspires you to live the abundant life God has for you. It’s the Journey of a lifetime…. your {life}time.

Alright, so for those of you who have begun this part of our journey (our pursuit of Financial Freedom), we are off to Week 6 of our  Crown Biblical Financial Study. Can you believe it? Three more weeks and we are through. Then it’s off to full (head-on) implementation! I am so excited, how about you?!

If you need a chance to catch up before jumping into Week 6, feel free to go back. Review, catch up, and then join us…

{WEEK 6: GIVING}

Okay, so we are on a journey toward D-Day (Debt Free Day). How can giving help me to become financially free?

“Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive’” (Acts 20:35).

Alright, I hope you didn’t think I was going to do the work for you! I’m simply going to give you some of the wonderful questions provided in this weeks study (pgs. 74-77). Then it’s your turn to dive into God’s word and find out what exactly God says about this topic. So here we go…

Let’s jump into the word!!

What is the proper attitude in giving?

  • Matthew 23:23
  • 1 Corinthians 13:3
  • 2 Corinthians 9:7

How can you develop a proper attitude in giving?

How would you describe your attitude in giving?

How does the principle from God’s economy differ from the way most people view giving? (Acts 20:35)

Benefits for the giver:

  • Proverbs 11:24-25
  • Matthew 6:20
  • Luke 12:34
  • 1 Timothy 6:18-19

How did God view the failure to tithe (give 10 percent)? ( Malachi 3:8-10)

List three principles that should influence how much you give. (2 Corinthians 8:1-5)

What do these verses tell you about financially supporting the church and those who teach the Scripture? 

  • Numbers 18:8-10, 24
  • Galatians 6:6
  • 1 Timothy 5:17-18

What about giving to the poor?

How does Jesus Christ identify with the needy? (Matthew 25:35-45)

What does this verse communicate to you about giving to the poor? (Galatians 2:9-10)

Are you currently giving to the needy? If not, what is hindering you?

{NOW IT’S YOUR TURN}

Please note that the information provided today is directly from the Crown Biblical Financial Study. I believe in the principles of God used in this study and it has been quite helpful in my own journey. The purpose of this weeks’ post is to give you some information which has proven to be helpful in my own life.

Now it’s your turn to allow God to lead you on your own Journey towards {Financial Freedom}!

I recommend you purchase the study in order for you and your spouse to go deeper into the lessons. There’s so much on this topic that I would not be able to cover in a post.

You can go to Crown’s website {here} for articles on the topic of GIVING/TITHING.

I want to hear from you! How’s your financial journey going? Remember, We are on this journey together!
