God Owns It All

Broke SeriesToday was the start of the “Broke: Picking Up Your Financial Pieces” series at the Dallas and West Paulding campuses of West Ridge Church. Brian opened the series teaching about the fact that “God is not broke.” Here are some of the highlights from his talk:

  • “People spend more than they earn and buy things they can’t afford.”
  • “We don’t plan for tough times, and instead we live paycheck to paycheck.”
  • “We have this idea that we are entitled to things and that we should have it right now.”
  • “The reason people challenge whether the New Testament teaches tithing is because they’re looking for freedom to give less to God.”
  • “Stuff is not yours. It’s on loan from God.”
  • “God is not broke. Everything belongs to God.”
  • “Everything we have comes from God.”
  • “Are you faithful with what God has given you?”
  • “If you are going to change your financial situation, you have to change your perspective.”
  • “God has put on loan to us a certain amount of stuff, and he’s asking, ‘What are you going to do with my stuff?'”
  • “The problem is we think we are owners instead of stewards.”
  • “Some of you are so committed to tithing you are being legalistic. You need to move from tithing to generosity.”
