  • HI, I'M ROBERT JEFFRESS

  • AND WELCOME AGAIN TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY.
  • 00:00:16.120 --> 00:00:19.100
  • CAR PAYMENTS.
  • 00:00:19.110 --> 00:00:20.270
  • THE MORTGAGE.
  • 00:00:20.280 --> 00:00:22.050
  • KEEPING THE LIGHTS ON.
  • 00:00:22.060 --> 00:00:23.230
  • WHEN YOU ADD UP ALL THESE NORMAL EXPENSES
  • 00:00:23.240 --> 00:00:26.120
  • THEY OFTEN LEAVE US WITH VERY LITTLE MARGIN.
  • 00:00:26.130 --> 00:00:29.240
  • AND THIS CAN LEAD TO FINANCIAL STRESS THAT DRIVES A WEDGE
  • 00:00:29.250 --> 00:00:33.040
  • INTO FAR TOO MANY RELATIONSHIPS.
  • 00:00:33.050 --> 00:00:35.260
  • SO WHAT'S THE ANSWER?
  • 00:00:35.270 --> 00:00:37.080
  • HOW CAN WE REACH A PLACE OF PEACE AND SATISFACTION
  • 00:00:37.090 --> 00:00:40.270
  • WITH OUR FINANCES?
  • 00:00:40.280 --> 00:00:42.150

  • EVERYBODY WANTS TO LIVE "THE GOOD LIFE".
  • 00:01:03.080 --> 00:01:05.270
  • BUT WE'RE OFTEN FRUSTRATED BY OUR INABILITY TO EXPERIENCE IT.
  • 00:01:05.280 --> 00:01:09.110
  • WHAT'S THE SECRET TO GENUINE SUCCESS?
  • 00:01:09.120 --> 00:01:11.270
  • THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO, THE WISEST, WEALTHIEST,
  • 00:01:11.280 --> 00:01:14.120
  • AND MOST POWERFUL MAN OF HIS DAY WROTE A BOOK
  • 00:01:14.130 --> 00:01:16.140

  • 00:01:20.170 --> 00:01:23.140
  • SOLOMON'S TIMELESS SECRET FOR SUCCESS

  • WHEN YOU GIVE A GENEROUS GIFT

  • TO PATHWAY TO VICTORY!
  • 00:01:31.010 --> 00:01:32.170
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:32.180 --> 00:01:33.220
  • MUSIC
  • 00:01:33.230 --> 00:01:40.240
  • VICKI ROBIN AND JOE DOMINGUEZ WROTE A
  • 00:01:40.250 --> 00:01:43.130
  • BEST-SELLING BOOK A FEW YEARS AGO ENTITLED:
  • 00:01:43.140 --> 00:01:46.100
  • "YOUR MONEY OR YOUR LIFE."
  • 00:01:46.110 --> 00:01:49.110
  • AND IN THE BOOK THEY RECOUNTED THEIR OWN
  • 00:01:49.120 --> 00:01:50.240
  • PERSONAL STORY OF HOW THEY DECIDED TO GET OUT
  • 00:01:50.250 --> 00:01:53.040
  • OF THE RAT RACE, TO QUIT THEIR JOBS,
  • 00:01:53.050 --> 00:01:55.270
  • AND LIVE ON $6.000 A YEAR OF INVESTMENT INCOME
  • 00:01:55.280 --> 00:02:00.060
  • SO THAT THEY COULD PURSUE THEIR REAL PASSION
  • 00:02:00.070 --> 00:02:03.030
  • OF PARTICIPATING IN CHARITABLE WORK.
  • 00:02:03.040 --> 00:02:06.030
  • THEY WANTED TO BE FREE FROM HAVING TO EARN A
  • 00:02:06.040 --> 00:02:08.230
  • LIVING SO THAT THEY COULD GIVE THEMSELVES
  • 00:02:08.240 --> 00:02:10.230
  • TO VOLUNTEER SERVICE.
  • 00:02:10.240 --> 00:02:11.280
  • NOW, IT'S NOT A CHRISTIAN BOOK PER SE,
  • 00:02:11.290 --> 00:02:15.240
  • BUT THERE'S A COMPELLING MESSAGE IN THAT BOOK FOR
  • 00:02:15.250 --> 00:02:18.050
  • EVERY CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:02:18.060 --> 00:02:19.280
  • THE FACT IS THERE ARE MANY CHRISTIANS WHO ARE
  • 00:02:19.290 --> 00:02:22.190
  • WORKING AT JOBS THEY CANNOT STAND,
  • 00:02:22.200 --> 00:02:25.200
  • TO BUY THINGS THEY DO NOT NEED,
  • 00:02:25.210 --> 00:02:28.040
  • IN ORDER TO IMPRESS PEOPLE THEY REALLY DON'T LIKE.
  • 00:02:28.050 --> 00:02:30.290
  • <<AUDIENCE LAUGHTER-
  • 00:02:31.000 --> 00:02:32.240
  • MAYBE YOU'RE ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE.
  • 00:02:32.250 --> 00:02:35.030
  • BUT YOU KNOW GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE -
  • 00:02:35.040 --> 00:02:37.170
  • WE SAW A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO - A PURPOSE THAT
  • 00:02:37.180 --> 00:02:40.030
  • EXTENDS BEYOND MERE CONSUMERISM.
  • 00:02:40.040 --> 00:02:43.280
  • GOD HAS A UNIQUE PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE AND FOR MY
  • 00:02:43.290 --> 00:02:46.210
  • LIFE, AND THAT MEANS MONEY IS NOT THE END.
  • 00:02:46.220 --> 00:02:50.090
  • CONSUMERISM IS NOT THE END - MONEY IS SIMPLY
  • 00:02:50.100 --> 00:02:53.010
  • THE MEANS TO THE END, TO GIVE US THE FREEDOM
  • 00:02:53.020 --> 00:02:55.130
  • WE NEED TO FULFILL GOD'S WILL FOR OUR LIFE.
  • 00:02:55.140 --> 00:02:59.270
  • THE GOAL OF EVERY CHRISTIAN,
  • 00:02:59.280 --> 00:03:01.030
  • AS WE SAW LAST WEEK SHOULD BE SIMPLY TO HAVE
  • 00:03:01.040 --> 00:03:04.040
  • ENOUGH MONEY TO HELP US DO
  • 00:03:04.050 --> 00:03:06.200
  • WHAT GOD HAS CALLED US TO DO.
  • 00:03:06.210 --> 00:03:09.070
  • IN FACT THAT WORD "ENOUGH" IS A GREAT GOAL
  • 00:03:09.080 --> 00:03:12.000
  • FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:03:12.010 --> 00:03:13.100
  • TURN OVER TO PROVERBS 30 FOR JUST A MOMENT.
  • 00:03:13.110 --> 00:03:16.220
  • THE WRITER GIVES US VERY CLEARLY WHAT SHOULD BE
  • 00:03:16.230 --> 00:03:19.060
  • THE FINANCIAL GOAL FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:03:19.070 --> 00:03:22.230
  • THE WRITER SAYS, "TWO THINGS I ASK OF THEE,
  • 00:03:22.240 --> 00:03:25.170
  • DO NOT REFUSE ME BEFORE I DIE: KEEP DECEPTION
  • 00:03:25.180 --> 00:03:29.050
  • AND LIES FAR FROM ME," AND HERE IT IS,
  • 00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:31.280
  • "GIVE ME NEITHER POVERTY NOR RICHES;
  • 00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:34.220
  • FEED ME WITH THE FOOD THAT IS MY PORTION,
  • 00:03:34.230 --> 00:03:37.080
  • THAT I NOT BE FULL AND DENY THEE AND SAY,
  • 00:03:37.090 --> 00:03:39.150
  • 'WHO IS THE LORD?' OR THAT I NOT BE IN WANT
  • 00:03:39.160 --> 00:03:42.100
  • AND STEAL, AND PROFANE THE NAME OF MY GOD."
  • 00:03:42.110 --> 00:03:44.190
  • DO YOU HEAR WHAT HE'S SAYING?
  • 00:03:44.200 --> 00:03:46.110
  • HE'S SAYING: GOD, DON'T GIVE ME SO MUCH MONEY
  • 00:03:46.120 --> 00:03:49.020
  • THAT I FORGET MY NEED FOR YOU,
  • 00:03:49.030 --> 00:03:51.140
  • BUT DON'T GIVE ME TOO LITTLE MONEY THAT I BE
  • 00:03:51.150 --> 00:03:53.280
  • TEMPTED TO DO SOMETHING THAT WOULD PROFANE YOUR
  • 00:03:53.290 --> 00:03:56.100
  • NAME - GIVE ME JUST WHAT I NEED.
  • 00:03:56.110 --> 00:04:01.000
  • THAT'S THE GOAL FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN.
  • 00:04:01.010 --> 00:04:04.030
  • NOW TODAY, WE'RE GOING TO CONCLUDE THIS STUDY
  • 00:04:04.040 --> 00:04:06.180
  • BY LOOKING AT FOUR PRACTICAL WAYS TO CREATE
  • 00:04:06.190 --> 00:04:10.190
  • FINANCIAL MARGIN IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:10.200 --> 00:04:12.050
  • MAYBE YOU'RE SAYING: PASTOR,
  • 00:04:12.060 --> 00:04:13.170
  • YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS
  • 00:04:13.180 --> 00:04:15.060
  • LIKE AROUND OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:04:15.070 --> 00:04:16.080
  • THERE IS NO EXTRA MONEY.
  • 00:04:16.090 --> 00:04:17.290
  • THERE IS NO WAY WE CAN DO WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:04:18.000 --> 00:04:21.110
  • OH YES, THERE IS.
  • 00:04:21.120 --> 00:04:22.050
  • AND WE'RE GOING TO DISCOVER THAT WAY,
  • 00:04:22.060 --> 00:04:24.040
  • REMEMBER THE GOAL OF MONEY IS NOT TO HAVE TOO
  • 00:04:24.050 --> 00:04:26.140
  • MUCH OR TOO LITTLE, BUT TO HAVE ENOUGH.
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:28.230
  • GOD WANTS US TO HAVE ENOUGH SO THAT WE ARE
  • 00:04:28.240 --> 00:04:32.100
  • FREE FROM HAVING TO THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:04:32.110 --> 00:04:34.100
  • AND FREE TO SERVE HIM.
  • 00:04:34.110 --> 00:04:36.190
  • HOW CAN YOU HAVE ENOUGH?
  • 00:04:36.200 --> 00:04:38.120
  • HOW CAN YOU HAVE THAT FINANCIAL MARGIN IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:04:38.130 --> 00:04:41.130
  • NOTICE ON YOUR OUTLINES, TODAY I HAVE WHAT I CALL
  • 00:04:41.140 --> 00:04:44.000
  • THE ABCS TO BE FINANCIALLY FREE.
  • 00:04:44.010 --> 00:04:48.070
  • HERE ARE THE FOUR PRINCIPLES FOR CREATING
  • 00:04:48.080 --> 00:04:50.130
  • THE MARGIN IN YOUR LIFE.
  • 00:04:50.140 --> 00:04:52.170
  • THE "A" STANDS FOR: ADJUST YOUR SPENDING
  • 00:04:52.180 --> 00:04:56.110
  • BELOW YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:04:56.120 --> 00:04:58.230
  • IF YOU WANT TO HAVE MARGIN,
  • 00:04:58.240 --> 00:04:59.270
  • FIRST OF ALL, ADJUST YOUR SPENDING BELOW YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:04:59.280 --> 00:05:05.190
  • WHEN I WAS IN MY LAST CHURCH,
  • 00:05:05.200 --> 00:05:07.240
  • CHRISTIAN FINANCIAL CONSULTANT RON BLUE
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:09.280
  • CAME TO TALK TO OUR CONGREGATION.
  • 00:05:09.290 --> 00:05:12.130
  • AND I REMEMBER HE TOLD A STORY ABOUT GOING INTO A
  • 00:05:12.140 --> 00:05:15.120
  • JEWELRY STORE ONE DAY.
  • 00:05:15.130 --> 00:05:17.100
  • AND AT THE COUNTER WAS A MAN WHO WAS TRYING ON
  • 00:05:17.110 --> 00:05:20.030
  • ROLEX WATCHES.
  • 00:05:20.040 --> 00:05:21.240
  • AND RON SAID HE JUST STOOD BY AND KIND OF
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:23.110
  • WATCHED ALL THE GOINGS ON THERE,
  • 00:05:23.120 --> 00:05:24.280
  • AND FINALLY THE MAN DECIDED HE WANTED THE
  • 00:05:24.290 --> 00:05:26.280
  • NEW ROLEX.
  • 00:05:26.290 --> 00:05:27.260
  • AND SO THE COUNTER GUY SAID:
  • 00:05:27.270 --> 00:05:31.190
  • WELL, HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PAY FOR IT?
  • 00:05:31.200 --> 00:05:33.070
  • WELL, HE DIDN'T HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY FOR IT SO
  • 00:05:33.080 --> 00:05:35.010
  • HE SIGNED UP FOR PAYMENTS.
  • 00:05:35.020 --> 00:05:36.060
  • HE PUT DOWN $200 AND THEN SIGNED UP FOR
  • 00:05:36.070 --> 00:05:39.110
  • PAYMENTS FOR $200 A MONTH;
  • 00:05:39.120 --> 00:05:42.080
  • FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE, I GUESS
  • 00:05:42.090 --> 00:05:44.060
  • AND HIS CHILDREN'S LIVES AS WELL.
  • 00:05:44.070 --> 00:05:46.170
  • NOW, COULD THAT MAN AFFORD A ROLEX WATCH?
  • 00:05:46.280 --> 00:05:50.070
  • NO, BUT HE WANTED TO LOOK LIKE HE COULD.
  • 00:05:50.080 --> 00:05:54.210
  • AND THERE ARE PEOPLE LIKE THAT WHO WANT TO
  • 00:05:54.220 --> 00:05:57.040
  • LOOK LIKE AND ACT LIKE THEY HAVE MORE MONEY
  • 00:05:57.050 --> 00:05:59.150
  • THAN THEY REALLY DO.
  • 00:05:59.160 --> 00:06:01.200
  • HERE IN TEXAS,
  • 00:06:01.210 --> 00:06:02.240
  • WE SAY SUCH PEOPLE ARE "ALL HAT AND NO CATTLE."
  • 00:06:02.250 --> 00:06:06.090
  • <<AUDIENCE LAUGHTER-
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:08.110
  • YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:06:08.120 --> 00:06:11.170
  • SOLOMON HAD A SIMILAR WORD ABOUT THAT IN
  • 00:06:11.180 --> 00:06:13.250
  • PROVERBS 13:7.
  • 00:06:13.260 --> 00:06:16.040
  • HE SAID, "THERE IS ONE WHO PRETENDS TO BE RICH,
  • 00:06:16.050 --> 00:06:19.030
  • BUT HAS NOTHING; BUT ANOTHER PRETENDS TO BE
  • 00:06:19.040 --> 00:06:22.120
  • POOR, AND HAS GREAT WEALTH."
  • 00:06:22.130 --> 00:06:25.200
  • SOLOMON UNDERSTOOD THE WAY TO ACCUMULATE
  • 00:06:25.210 --> 00:06:27.200
  • FINANCIAL MARGIN WAS NOT SPENDING EVERYTHING YOU
  • 00:06:27.210 --> 00:06:30.290
  • COULD AFFORD TO SPEND, OR CERTAINLY NOT
  • 00:06:31.000 --> 00:06:33.100
  • SPENDING MORE THAN YOU COULD AFFORD TO SPEND,
  • 00:06:33.110 --> 00:06:35.100
  • BUT SPENDING LESS THAN YOU'RE ABLE TO AFFORD TO SPEND.
  • 00:06:35.110 --> 00:06:39.070
  • YOU SEE, IN OUR CULTURE PEOPLE ARE ENCOURAGED TO
  • 00:06:39.080 --> 00:06:42.290
  • SPEND EVERYTHING THAT THEY HAVE,
  • 00:06:43.000 --> 00:06:45.000
  • BUT THE MILLIONAIRE HAS LEARNED THE SECRET TO
  • 00:06:45.010 --> 00:06:47.060
  • ACCUMULATING MARGIN IN LIFE AND THAT IS TO
  • 00:06:47.070 --> 00:06:49.220
  • SPEND LESS THAN YOU EARN OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME.
  • 00:06:49.230 --> 00:06:53.090
  • AGAIN, PROVERBS 21:20, "THERE IS PRECIOUS
  • 00:06:53.100 --> 00:06:56.010
  • TREASURE AND OIL IN THE DWELLING OF THE WISE,
  • 00:06:56.020 --> 00:06:59.110
  • BUT A FOOLISH PERSON SWALLOWS IT UP."
  • 00:06:59.120 --> 00:07:02.190
  • NOW THE "B" IN THIS OUTLINE STANDS FOR:
  • 00:07:02.200 --> 00:07:06.100
  • BE CAREFUL OF DEBT.
  • 00:07:06.110 --> 00:07:09.000
  • BE CAREFUL OF DEBT.
  • 00:07:09.010 --> 00:07:11.180
  • DEBT WILL DEVOUR, IT WILL ERASE YOUR
  • 00:07:11.190 --> 00:07:15.090
  • FINANCIAL MARGIN.
  • 00:07:15.100 --> 00:07:17.030
  • NOW WE NEED TO BE BALANCED IN WHAT
  • 00:07:17.040 --> 00:07:18.220
  • WE SAY ABOUT DEBT.
  • 00:07:18.230 --> 00:07:20.060
  • SOME PEOPLE, SOME CHRISTIANS ARE VERY
  • 00:07:20.070 --> 00:07:21.280
  • LEGALISTIC ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:07:21.290 --> 00:07:23.070
  • THEY SAY: OH, IT'S A SIN TO EVER BORROW MONEY FOR
  • 00:07:23.080 --> 00:07:26.040
  • ANY REASON AT ANY TIME.
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:27.230
  • THE BIBLE DOESN'T TEACH THAT.
  • 00:07:27.240 --> 00:07:29.230
  • AND YET TO SUPPORT THAT THINKING,
  • 00:07:29.240 --> 00:07:31.050
  • SOMETIMES PEOPLE QUOTE ROMANS 13:8 IN WHICH PAUL
  • 00:07:31.060 --> 00:07:34.230
  • SAYS, "OWE NO MAN ANYTHING EXCEPT A DEBT OF LOVE."
  • 00:07:34.240 --> 00:07:40.200
  • AND YET IF YOU LOOK AT THAT VERSE IN CONTEXT,
  • 00:07:40.210 --> 00:07:43.080
  • YOU DISCOVER WHAT PAUL WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:07:43.090 --> 00:07:45.140
  • LITERALLY IS PAYING YOUR TAXES.
  • 00:07:45.150 --> 00:07:47.210
  • HE IS SAYING: DON'T BE DELINQUENT
  • 00:07:47.220 --> 00:07:50.140
  • IN PAYING YOUR TAXES.
  • 00:07:50.150 --> 00:07:52.130
  • DON'T BE DELINQUENT IN GIVING HONOR TO PEOPLE TO
  • 00:07:52.140 --> 00:07:54.250
  • WHOM HONOR IS DUE.
  • 00:07:54.260 --> 00:07:56.140
  • DON'T BE DELINQUENT IN PAYING ANYTHING YOU OWE -
  • 00:07:56.150 --> 00:07:59.030
  • THE ONLY THING YOU WANT TO OWE PEOPLE
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:01.070
  • IS THE DEBT OF LOVE.
  • 00:08:01.080 --> 00:08:02.240
  • IT'S NOT AN ABSOLUTE PROHIBITION AGAINST DEBT.
  • 00:08:02.250 --> 00:08:05.150
  • NEVERTHELESS, THE BIBLE DOES WARN ABOUT THE
  • 00:08:05.160 --> 00:08:08.280
  • DANGERS OF DEBT, ESPECIALLY EXCESSIVE DEBT.
  • 00:08:08.290 --> 00:08:12.240
  • IN THE BOOK OF PROVERBS,
  • 00:08:12.250 --> 00:08:14.060
  • SOLOMON REFERS TO DEBT AS A SURETY.
  • 00:08:14.070 --> 00:08:17.150
  • IN SOLOMON'S DAY IF YOU WANTED TO
  • 00:08:17.160 --> 00:08:19.060
  • BORROW MONEY TO PURCHASE SOMETHING,
  • 00:08:19.070 --> 00:08:21.150
  • YOU WOULD SIGN A PLEDGE,
  • 00:08:21.160 --> 00:08:23.180
  • LIKE A PROMISSORY NOTE TODAY,
  • 00:08:23.190 --> 00:08:25.060
  • AND YOU WOULD HAVE TO HAVE COLLATERAL TO
  • 00:08:25.070 --> 00:08:26.250
  • BACK IT UP.
  • 00:08:26.260 --> 00:08:28.070
  • NOW, SOLOMON SAID BEFORE YOU GO INTO DEBT AND YOU
  • 00:08:28.080 --> 00:08:31.260
  • MAKE A PLEDGE, YOU BETTER MAKE SURE YOU'VE
  • 00:08:31.270 --> 00:08:33.290
  • GOT THE MEANS TO REPAY IT.
  • 00:08:34.000 --> 00:08:35.220
  • IN FACT, IN PROVERBS 22:26-27 THIS IS HOW HE WORDS IT,
  • 00:08:35.230 --> 00:08:40.070
  • "DO NOT BE AMONG THOSE WHO GIVE PLEDGES,
  • 00:08:40.080 --> 00:08:42.270
  • AMONG THOSE WHO BECOME SURETIES FOR DEBTS.
  • 00:08:42.280 --> 00:08:46.040
  • FOR IF YOU HAVE NOTHING WITH WHICH TO PAY,
  • 00:08:46.050 --> 00:08:49.010
  • WHY SHOULD HE TAKE YOUR BED FROM UNDER YOU?"
  • 00:08:49.020 --> 00:08:51.230
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE BEING ASLEEP IN THE MIDDLE OF
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:53.130
  • THE NIGHT, THE DEBT COLLECTOR COMES,
  • 00:08:53.140 --> 00:08:54.230
  • AND SWOOSH YOUR BED IS GONE?
  • 00:08:54.240 --> 00:08:57.160
  • THAT'S WHAT SOLOMON IS TALKING ABOUT.
  • 00:08:57.170 --> 00:08:58.260
  • HE SAID: BEFORE YOU ENTER INTO DEBT,
  • 00:08:58.270 --> 00:09:00.150
  • ASK YOURSELF WHAT'S THE WORST THING THAT COULD
  • 00:09:00.160 --> 00:09:02.230
  • HAPPEN TO ME IF I CANNOT REPAY THIS DEBT?
  • 00:09:02.240 --> 00:09:07.040
  • SOLOMON, AGAIN, DOESN'T PROHIBIT DEBT
  • 00:09:07.050 --> 00:09:09.260
  • COMPLETELY, BUT HE SAYS BE VERY CAREFUL OF IT.
  • 00:09:09.270 --> 00:09:13.050
  • AND THERE'S A REASON FOR THAT.
  • 00:09:13.060 --> 00:09:14.100
  • IN PROVERBS 22:7, HE SAYS,
  • 00:09:14.110 --> 00:09:17.050
  • "THE RICH RULES OVER THE POOR AND THE BORROWER
  • 00:09:17.060 --> 00:09:21.230
  • BECOMES THE LENDER'S SLAVE."
  • 00:09:21.240 --> 00:09:25.230
  • IF YOU BORROW MONEY FROM SOMEBODY,
  • 00:09:25.240 --> 00:09:27.200
  • YOU ARE THAT PERSON'S SLAVE.
  • 00:09:27.210 --> 00:09:30.050
  • AND TODAY THERE ARE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS
  • 00:09:30.060 --> 00:09:32.040
  • WHO ARE SLAVES TO MASTERCARD,
  • 00:09:32.050 --> 00:09:35.130
  • TO VISA, <<AMEN!- TO AMERICANEXPRESS
  • 00:09:35.140 --> 00:09:38.000
  • THANK YOU FOR THAT AMEN, I APPRECIATE THAT.
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:40.110
  • I READ ONE STUDY THIS WEEK THAT SAID 25% OF
  • 00:09:41.260 --> 00:09:44.220
  • ALL HOUSEHOLD INCOME EVERY MONTH IS SPENT ON
  • 00:09:44.230 --> 00:09:47.110
  • CONSUMER DEBT; NOT MORTGAGE PAYMENTS,
  • 00:09:47.120 --> 00:09:50.030
  • JUST CONSUMER DEBT.
  • 00:09:50.040 --> 00:09:51.140
  • WHEN YOU PUT ON TOP OF THAT MORTGAGE PAYMENTS,
  • 00:09:51.150 --> 00:09:53.230
  • CAR PAYMENTS, FOOD, AND ALL THE OTHER
  • 00:09:53.240 --> 00:09:55.200
  • NECESSITIES OF LIFE - NO WONDER SO FEW PEOPLE
  • 00:09:55.210 --> 00:09:58.160
  • HAVE ANY MARGIN IN THEIR FINANCES.
  • 00:09:58.170 --> 00:10:01.230
  • ARE YOU BORROWING TOO MUCH MONEY?
  • 00:10:01.240 --> 00:10:03.090
  • ARE YOU ENSLAVED TO DEBT?
  • 00:10:03.100 --> 00:10:05.120
  • HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE?
  • 00:10:05.130 --> 00:10:07.000
  • WELL, ONE WAY IS TO DO A CALCULATION.
  • 00:10:07.010 --> 00:10:09.100
  • MANY FINANCIAL CONSULTANTS SAY THAT WE
  • 00:10:09.110 --> 00:10:11.130
  • SHOULD SPEND NO MORE THAN 30-35% OF OUR
  • 00:10:11.140 --> 00:10:15.070
  • INCOME EVERY MONTH ON ALL OF OUR DEBT:
  • 00:10:15.080 --> 00:10:17.180
  • HOUSE PAYMENTS, CAR PAYMENTS, CREDIT CARD PAYMENT.
  • 00:10:17.190 --> 00:10:21.000
  • IF YOU'RE SPENDING MORE THAN 30-35%,
  • 00:10:21.010 --> 00:10:24.060
  • YOU MAY BE IN TROUBLE.
  • 00:10:24.070 --> 00:10:25.210
  • HERE IS THE BASIC PROBLEM,
  • 00:10:26.060 --> 00:10:27.130
  • LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, WITH DEBT.
  • 00:10:27.140 --> 00:10:29.270
  • DEBT ALLOWS US
  • 00:10:29.280 --> 00:10:32.080
  • TO ARTIFICIALLY LIVE BEYOND OUR MEANS,
  • 00:10:32.090 --> 00:10:36.050
  • AND DEBT ERASES ANY FINANCIAL MARGIN
  • 00:10:36.060 --> 00:10:39.180
  • IN OUR LIFE.
  • 00:10:39.190 --> 00:10:40.160
  • AND THAT'S WHY I SAY: CONSUMER DEBT IS ENEMY
  • 00:10:40.170 --> 00:10:44.020
  • NUMBER ONE OF FINANCIAL MARGIN.
  • 00:10:44.030 --> 00:10:48.080
  • REMEMBER GOD DOESN'T WANT US TO BE A SLAVE TO
  • 00:10:48.090 --> 00:10:50.250
  • ANYONE EXCEPT TO HIMSELF.
  • 00:10:50.260 --> 00:10:53.000
  • BE CAREFUL OF DEBT.
  • 00:10:53.010 --> 00:10:56.000
  • NUMBER THREE: HOW DO YOU CREATE FINANCIAL MARGIN
  • 00:10:56.010 --> 00:10:58.070
  • IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:10:58.080 --> 00:10:59.070
  • REMEMBER, ALL OF THIS IS COMING STRAIGHT FROM
  • 00:10:59.080 --> 00:11:01.010
  • GOD'S WORD, CONSISTENTLY SAVE PART OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:11:01.020 --> 00:11:05.200
  • THE "C" STANDS FOR: CONSISTENTLY SAVE PART
  • 00:11:05.210 --> 00:11:08.130
  • OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:11:08.140 --> 00:11:09.120
  • REMEMBER PROVERBS 6:6-8?
  • 00:11:09.130 --> 00:11:12.210
  • SOLOMON SAID, "GO TO THE ANT,
  • 00:11:12.220 --> 00:11:14.170
  • O SLUGGARD, OBSERVE HER WAYS AND BE WISE,
  • 00:11:14.180 --> 00:11:17.270
  • WHICH, HAVING NO CHIEF, OFFICER OR RULER,
  • 00:11:17.280 --> 00:11:20.180
  • PREPARES HER FOOD IN SUMMER AND THEN GATHERS
  • 00:11:20.190 --> 00:11:23.140
  • HER PROVISION IN THE HARVEST."
  • 00:11:23.150 --> 00:11:26.000
  • EVEN AN ANT UNDERSTANDS THAT THE HARVEST THAT IT
  • 00:11:26.010 --> 00:11:28.280
  • ENJOYS IN SUMMER TIME, THE BOUNTIFUL FOOD WON'T
  • 00:11:28.290 --> 00:11:31.280
  • LAST FOREVER.
  • 00:11:31.290 --> 00:11:32.270
  • SO IT SETS ASIDE SOME OF THE FOOD IN THE SUMMER
  • 00:11:32.280 --> 00:11:35.090
  • AND IN THE FALL TO PREPARE FOR THE
  • 00:11:35.100 --> 00:11:37.270
  • WINTERTIME WHEN THERE IS NO FOOD.
  • 00:11:37.280 --> 00:11:40.270
  • THE SAME THING IS TRUE FOR US.
  • 00:11:40.280 --> 00:11:42.040
  • IF WE'RE WISE, WE'RE GOING TO SET ASIDE SOME
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:44.190
  • OF OUR INCOME FOR FUTURE NEEDS.
  • 00:11:44.200 --> 00:11:46.260
  • HOW MUCH INCOME SHOULD WE SET ASIDE?
  • 00:11:46.270 --> 00:11:49.090
  • SOME FINANCIAL PLANNERS SAY THAT WE OUGHT TO SET
  • 00:11:49.100 --> 00:11:51.170
  • ASIDE AT LEAST 10-15% OF OUR INCOME FOR OUR
  • 00:11:51.180 --> 00:11:54.280
  • RETIREMENT NEEDS; AND THEN MORE THAN THAT TO
  • 00:11:54.290 --> 00:11:57.230
  • SET ASIDE FOR EMERGENCIES,
  • 00:11:57.240 --> 00:11:59.060
  • COLLEGE EDUCATIONS, AND OTHER BIG-TICKET ITEMS.
  • 00:11:59.070 --> 00:12:01.290
  • HOW MUCH MONEY YOU SET ASIDE REALLY ISN'T OUR
  • 00:12:02.000 --> 00:12:04.220
  • CALL TO MAKE, BUT I WANT TO GIVE YOU THREE WORDS
  • 00:12:04.230 --> 00:12:08.140
  • THAT WILL HELP YOU IN YOUR SAVING;
  • 00:12:08.150 --> 00:12:10.210
  • AND THREE WORDS THAT WILL HELP YOU UNDERSTAND
  • 00:12:10.220 --> 00:12:12.240
  • THE BENEFITS OF SAVING.
  • 00:12:12.250 --> 00:12:15.000
  • NUMBER ONE, IMMEDIACY.
  • 00:12:15.010 --> 00:12:17.040
  • IMMEDIACY.
  • 00:12:17.050 --> 00:12:18.050
  • THE BEST TIME TO BEGIN SAVING MONEY IS NOW.
  • 00:12:18.060 --> 00:12:23.070
  • BECAUSE AS WE'RE GOING TO SEE IN A MOMENT,
  • 00:12:23.080 --> 00:12:25.010
  • SMALLER AMOUNTS OF MONEY SAVED EARLY IN LIFE ARE
  • 00:12:25.020 --> 00:12:28.280
  • MUCH MORE VALUABLE THAN LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY
  • 00:12:28.290 --> 00:12:31.230
  • SAVED LATER IN LIFE.
  • 00:12:31.240 --> 00:12:33.200
  • ALL BECAUSE OF THE MAGIC OF COMPOUND INTEREST.
  • 00:12:33.210 --> 00:12:37.020
  • SOMEBODY ONCE SAID THE BEST TIME TO PLANT AN
  • 00:12:37.030 --> 00:12:39.250
  • OAK TREE WAS 20 YEARS AGO.
  • 00:12:39.260 --> 00:12:42.160
  • THE NEXT BEST TIME IS TODAY.
  • 00:12:44.170 --> 00:12:47.170
  • THE SAME THING IS TRUE WITH YOUR SAVING.
  • 00:12:47.180 --> 00:12:49.120
  • REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU HAVEN'T DONE IN THE
  • 00:12:49.130 --> 00:12:51.040
  • PAST, TODAY IS THE BEST TIME.
  • 00:12:51.050 --> 00:12:53.020
  • IMMEDIACY.
  • 00:12:53.030 --> 00:12:53.270
  • SECONDLY, THE WORD "CONSISTENCY."
  • 00:12:53.280 --> 00:12:56.210
  • NOW THIS IS A KEY WORD: CONSISTENCY.
  • 00:12:56.220 --> 00:12:59.250
  • AGAIN, A SMALL AMOUNT OF MONEY REGULARLY SAVED OVER
  • 00:12:59.260 --> 00:13:03.240
  • A LONG PERIOD OF TIME CAN DO WONDROUS THINGS.
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:07.270
  • NOW, MOST PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO THINK ABOUT
  • 00:13:07.280 --> 00:13:09.130
  • SAVING BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO DEPRIVE THEMSELVES.
  • 00:13:09.140 --> 00:13:11.290
  • THEY THINK IF THEY SAVE MONEY,
  • 00:13:12.000 --> 00:13:13.230
  • THEY'RE DEPRIVING THEMSELVES OF CURRENT
  • 00:13:13.240 --> 00:13:15.120
  • ENJOYMENT OF LIFE.
  • 00:13:15.130 --> 00:13:16.160
  • BUT LISTEN, YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE AN EBENEZER SCROOGE
  • 00:13:16.170 --> 00:13:19.040
  • TO HAVE FINANCIAL MARGIN IN LIFE.
  • 00:13:19.050 --> 00:13:21.080
  • LET ME GIVE THIS ILLUSTRATION,
  • 00:13:21.090 --> 00:13:22.150
  • AND AGAIN, I HOPE YOU YOUNG ADULTS WILL
  • 00:13:22.160 --> 00:13:24.040
  • ESPECIALLY LISTEN TO THIS,
  • 00:13:24.050 --> 00:13:26.030
  • AND PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS TELL YOUR
  • 00:13:26.040 --> 00:13:27.250
  • KIDS AND GRANDKIDS.
  • 00:13:27.260 --> 00:13:29.040
  • LET'S IMAGINE SOMEONE HAS JUST GRADUATED FROM
  • 00:13:29.050 --> 00:13:32.000
  • SCHOOL, THEY'RE JUST BEGINNING THEIR WORK LIFE,
  • 00:13:32.010 --> 00:13:34.050
  • THEY'RE 22 YEARS OLD,
  • 00:13:34.060 --> 00:13:35.210
  • 22-YEAR-OLD YOUNG ADULT.
  • 00:13:35.220 --> 00:13:37.220
  • AND LET'S IMAGINE THIS 22-YEAR-OLD YOUNG ADULT
  • 00:13:37.230 --> 00:13:40.290
  • STARTS INVESTING $100 A MONTH IN A MUTUAL FUND.
  • 00:13:41.000 --> 00:13:46.000
  • AND LET'S SAY THE MUTUAL FUND EARNS 12% A YEAR.
  • 00:13:46.010 --> 00:13:50.130
  • DID YOU KNOW BY AGE 72; THAT PERSON WILL HAVE
  • 00:13:50.140 --> 00:13:53.120
  • ACCUMULATED $3.9 MILLION.
  • 00:13:53.130 --> 00:13:58.200
  • $3.9 MILLION, AND IF HE PUTS IT IN A ROTH IRA
  • 00:13:58.210 --> 00:14:02.180
  • HE CAN HAVE THAT MONEY TAX-FREE.
  • 00:14:02.190 --> 00:14:06.070
  • IN OTHER WORDS, FOR THE PRICE OF A STARBUCKS
  • 00:14:06.080 --> 00:14:08.250
  • EVERY DAY, THIS PERSON CAN RETIRE A
  • 00:14:08.260 --> 00:14:12.020
  • MULTIMILLIONAIRE.
  • 00:14:12.030 --> 00:14:14.080
  • THIRDLY, THE WORD "DIVERSITY."
  • 00:14:14.210 --> 00:14:17.170
  • THE THIRD KEY IN SAVING MONEY IS TO DIVERSIFY YOUR SAVINGS.
  • 00:14:17.180 --> 00:14:21.210
  • MARK TWAIN SAID: PUT ALL OF YOUR EGGS IN ONE
  • 00:14:21.220 --> 00:14:23.270
  • BASKET, AND WATCH THE BASKET.
  • 00:14:23.280 --> 00:14:26.140
  • BUT SOLOMON SAYS: NO, THAT IS A PRESCRIPTION
  • 00:14:26.150 --> 00:14:28.260
  • FOR FINANCIAL DISASTER.
  • 00:14:28.270 --> 00:14:30.220
  • INSTEAD, LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAYS IN ECCLESIASTES 11:2,
  • 00:14:30.230 --> 00:14:34.090
  • "DIVIDE YOUR PORTION TO SEVEN,
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:37.030
  • OR EVEN TO EIGHT, FOR YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT
  • 00:14:37.040 --> 00:14:39.120
  • MISFORTUNE MAY OCCUR ON THE EARTH."
  • 00:14:39.130 --> 00:14:42.040
  • DON'T PUT ALL OF YOUR MONEY IN STOCKS.
  • 00:14:42.050 --> 00:14:44.080
  • DON'T PUT ALL OF YOUR MONEY IN BONDS.
  • 00:14:44.090 --> 00:14:45.280
  • DON'T PUT IT ALL IN REAL ESTATE.
  • 00:14:45.290 --> 00:14:48.060
  • DIVERSIFY, BECAUSE YOU REALLY DON'T KNOW WHAT
  • 00:14:48.070 --> 00:14:50.270
  • THE FUTURE HOLDS.
  • 00:14:50.280 --> 00:14:52.140
  • HAVE A BALANCED INVESTMENT SO THAT YOU
  • 00:14:52.150 --> 00:14:55.170
  • CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SOME THINGS THAT ARE UP
  • 00:14:55.180 --> 00:14:57.290
  • WHILE OTHER THINGS ARE DOWN.
  • 00:14:58.000 --> 00:14:59.290
  • DIVERSITY.
  • 00:15:00.020 --> 00:15:01.120
  • HOW DO YOU CREATE FINANCIAL MARGIN IN YOUR LIFE?
  • 00:15:01.130 --> 00:15:04.140
  • ADJUST YOUR SPENDING BELOW YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:15:04.150 --> 00:15:06.270
  • B - BE CAREFUL OF DEBT.
  • 00:15:06.280 --> 00:15:08.230
  • C - CONSISTENTLY SAVE A PORTION OF YOUR INCOME.
  • 00:15:08.240 --> 00:15:11.160
  • D - THE FINAL AND AN IMPORTANT PRINCIPLE -
  • 00:15:11.170 --> 00:15:15.020
  • DEVOTE A PORTION OF YOUR INCOME TO GOD.
  • 00:15:15.030 --> 00:15:19.000
  • DEVOTE A PORTION OF YOUR INCOME TO GOD.
  • 00:15:19.010 --> 00:15:21.190
  • SOLOMON OFFERED ANOTHER PIECE OF FINANCIAL
  • 00:15:21.200 --> 00:15:23.260
  • COUNCIL THAT IS OVERLOOKED BY SO MANY
  • 00:15:23.270 --> 00:15:25.280
  • PEOPLE AND SO MANY CHRISTIANS,
  • 00:15:25.290 --> 00:15:27.200
  • AND EXPLAINS WHY SO MANY CHRISTIANS HAVE TROUBLE
  • 00:15:27.210 --> 00:15:30.250
  • WITH THEIR FINANCES.
  • 00:15:30.260 --> 00:15:32.020
  • LISTEN TO PROVERBS 3:9-10,
  • 00:15:32.030 --> 00:15:35.130
  • "HONOR THE LORD FROM YOUR WEALTH AND FROM THE
  • 00:15:35.140 --> 00:15:39.110
  • FIRST OF ALL YOUR PRODUCE;
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:41.130
  • SO THAT YOUR BARNS WILL BE FILLED WITH PLENTY

  • AND YOUR VATS WILL BE OVERCOME WITH NEW WINE."
  • 00:15:44.190 --> 00:15:48.140
  • NOW HEAR ME THIS MORNING:
  • 00:15:48.150 --> 00:15:50.120
  • THESE VERSES ARE NOT A BLANKET-PROMISE THAT IF
  • 00:15:50.210 --> 00:15:54.050
  • YOU GIVE TO GOD, YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:56.130
  • FINANCIALLY WEALTHY.
  • 00:15:56.140 --> 00:15:58.140
  • IF THAT WERE THE CASE, IF GIVING TO GOD ENSURED
  • 00:15:58.150 --> 00:16:02.020
  • AND PROMISED THAT YOU WOULD ALWAYS,
  • 00:16:02.030 --> 00:16:03.240
  • 100% OF THE TIME BE FINANCIALLY SUCCESSFUL -
  • 00:16:03.250 --> 00:16:07.030
  • THEN GIVING WOULD NOT BE A MATTER OF MAKING AN
  • 00:16:07.040 --> 00:16:09.060
  • OFFERING, IT WOULD BE MAKING A WISE
  • 00:16:09.070 --> 00:16:10.220
  • INVESTMENT, WOULDN'T IT?
  • 00:16:10.230 --> 00:16:12.280
  • NEVERTHELESS, AS YOU LOOK THROUGH THE WHOLE
  • 00:16:12.290 --> 00:16:15.250
  • COUNCIL OF GOD ON THIS SUBJECT OF GIVING YOU
  • 00:16:15.260 --> 00:16:18.180
  • FIND THAT MORE OFTEN THAN NOT,
  • 00:16:18.190 --> 00:16:21.180
  • GOD PROMISES TO BLESS THOSE WHO GIVE,
  • 00:16:21.190 --> 00:16:25.180
  • AND TO JUDGE THOSE WHO WITHHOLD FROM HIM.
  • 00:16:25.190 --> 00:16:28.230
  • IN FACT, NOT TO GIVE WHAT BELONGS TO GOD,
  • 00:16:28.240 --> 00:16:34.170
  • GOD CALLS ROBBERY.
  • 00:16:34.180 --> 00:16:37.040
  • TO NOT GIVE WHAT BELONGS TO HIM IS TANTAMOUNT TO
  • 00:16:37.050 --> 00:16:41.160
  • ROBBING GOD.
  • 00:16:41.170 --> 00:16:42.230
  • TURN OVER TO MALACHI 3 BEGINNING WITH VERSE 8,
  • 00:16:42.240 --> 00:16:46.100
  • "WILL A MAN ROB GOD?"
  • 00:16:46.110 --> 00:16:49.060
  • NOTICE WHAT HE SAYS.
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:49.290
  • GOD SAID: BUT, "YOU'RE ROBBING ME.
  • 00:16:50.000 --> 00:16:52.190
  • BUT YOU SAY: HOW WE ROBBED YOU GOD?
  • 00:16:52.200 --> 00:16:54.230
  • GOD ANSWERS, "IN TITHES AND OFFERINGS.
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:58.230
  • FOR YOU ARE CURSED WITH A CURSE,
  • 00:16:58.240 --> 00:17:00.270
  • FOR YOU ARE ROBBING ME, THE WHOLE NATION OF YOU!"
  • 00:17:00.280 --> 00:17:04.170
  • "'BRING THE WHOLE TITHE INTO THE STOREHOUSE,
  • 00:17:04.180 --> 00:17:08.200
  • SO THAT THERE MAY BE FOOD IN MY HOUSE,
  • 00:17:08.210 --> 00:17:11.020
  • AND TEST ME NOW IN THIS,' SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS,"
  • 00:17:11.030 --> 00:17:13.230
  • IT'S ONE OF THE FEW TIMES WE'RE EVER
  • 00:17:13.240 --> 00:17:14.220
  • TOLD TO TEST GOD IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:17:14.230 --> 00:17:16.200
  • BUT GOD SAYS: YOU CAN TEST ME IN THIS.
  • 00:17:16.210 --> 00:17:18.110
  • IF YOU BRING THE WHOLE TITHE INTO THE STOREHOUSE,
  • 00:17:18.120 --> 00:17:20.180
  • "TEST ME AND SEE IF I WILL NOT OPEN
  • 00:17:20.190 --> 00:17:23.250
  • FOR YOU THE WINDOWS OF HEAVEN AND POUR OUT FOR
  • 00:17:23.260 --> 00:17:26.080
  • YOU A BLESSING UNTIL IT OVERFLOWS."
  • 00:17:26.090 --> 00:17:28.290
  • THAT'S THE POSITIVE PROMISE.
  • 00:17:29.000 --> 00:17:31.090
  • BUT NOTICE THERE'S A NEGATIVE PROMISE HERE
  • 00:17:31.100 --> 00:17:33.000
  • TOO IN VERSE 11, "'THEN I WILL REBUKE THE
  • 00:17:33.010 --> 00:17:36.190
  • DEVOURER FOR YOU, SO THAT IT MAY NOT DESTROY
  • 00:17:36.200 --> 00:17:39.240
  • THE FRUITS OF THE GROUND;
  • 00:17:39.250 --> 00:17:41.180
  • NOR WILL YOUR VINE IN THE FIELD CAST ITS
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:43.280
  • GRAPES,' SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS."
  • 00:17:43.290 --> 00:17:48.090
  • THE POSITIVE PROMISE IS THIS,
  • 00:17:48.100 --> 00:17:49.170
  • GOD SAID: ISRAELITES, IF YOU WILL GIVE 10% OF
  • 00:17:49.180 --> 00:17:52.260
  • WHAT YOU HAVE TO ME, I WILL BLESS THE 90% ABOVE
  • 00:17:52.270 --> 00:17:56.070
  • ANYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE.
  • 00:17:56.080 --> 00:17:58.000
  • BUT IF YOU ROB ME OF THE 10% THAT BELONGS TO ME,
  • 00:17:58.290 --> 00:18:02.290
  • I'LL ALLOW THE DEVOURER TO CONSUME 90% AND MORE
  • 00:18:03.000 --> 00:18:07.000
  • OF WHAT YOU HAVE.
  • 00:18:07.010 --> 00:18:08.270
  • SO WHAT IS THE ANSWER HERE?
  • 00:18:08.280 --> 00:18:11.050
  • WELL, LOOK AT VERSE 10, "BRING THE WHOLE TITHE,"
  • 00:18:11.060 --> 00:18:16.260
  • WHERE? "INTO THE STOREHOUSE."
  • 00:18:16.270 --> 00:18:20.260
  • NOW, WHEN MALACHI SAID THAT TO THE ISRAELITES,
  • 00:18:20.270 --> 00:18:24.040
  • THEY DIDN'T SAY: STOREHOUSE,
  • 00:18:24.050 --> 00:18:25.010
  • WHAT'S THE STOREHOUSE?
  • 00:18:25.020 --> 00:18:26.020
  • THEY ALL KNEW WHAT THE STOREHOUSE WAS.
  • 00:18:26.030 --> 00:18:27.260
  • THE STOREHOUSE WAS THE TEMPLE.
  • 00:18:27.270 --> 00:18:30.050
  • THE TITHE BELONGED IN THE TEMPLE OF GOD.
  • 00:18:30.060 --> 00:18:33.010
  • BRING THE WHOLE TITHE INTO THE STOREHOUSE.
  • 00:18:33.020 --> 00:18:34.220
  • NOW QUESTION IS: WHERE IS THE STOREHOUSE TODAY?
  • 00:18:34.230 --> 00:18:37.040
  • WE DON'T HAVE A TEMPLE.
  • 00:18:37.050 --> 00:18:38.160
  • WHERE IS THE STOREHOUSE TODAY?
  • 00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:40.290
  • IT'S THE LOCAL CHURCH THAT HAS BEEN UNIQUELY
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:44.260
  • CREATED BY GOD AND IT'S THE LOCAL CHURCH THAT
  • 00:18:44.270 --> 00:18:47.260
  • HAS BEEN UNIQUELY COMMISSIONED BY GOD TO
  • 00:18:47.270 --> 00:18:50.230
  • FULFILL THE GREAT COMMISSION.
  • 00:18:50.240 --> 00:18:52.220
  • EVERY OTHER ORGANIZATION IN THE WORLD,
  • 00:18:52.230 --> 00:18:54.060
  • I DON'T CARE HOW WONDERFUL IT IS,
  • 00:18:54.070 --> 00:18:55.200
  • IT'S A MAN-MADE ORGANIZATION -
  • 00:18:55.210 --> 00:18:57.120
  • EVERY ONE OF THEM.
  • 00:18:57.130 --> 00:18:58.180
  • EVERY CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATION IS A
  • 00:18:58.190 --> 00:18:59.280
  • MAN-MADE ORGANIZATION EXCEPT THE LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:02.210
  • GOD DESIGNED THE CHURCH.
  • 00:19:02.220 --> 00:19:04.290
  • GOD COMMISSIONED THE CHURCH TO BE HIS AGENT
  • 00:19:05.000 --> 00:19:08.010
  • FOR SPREADING THE WORD OF GOD THROUGHOUT THE
  • 00:19:08.020 --> 00:19:10.060
  • WORLD.
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:11.040
  • I'M NOT SAYING YOU DON'T GIVE TO THOSE OTHER
  • 00:19:11.050 --> 00:19:12.100
  • THINGS, BUT WHAT I'M SAYING IS THE PRIMARY
  • 00:19:12.110 --> 00:19:14.180
  • FOCUS OF OUR GIVING IS TO BE THE STOREHOUSE.
  • 00:19:14.190 --> 00:19:18.060
  • AND IN THE NEW TESTAMENT THAT STOREHOUSE IS THE
  • 00:19:18.070 --> 00:19:20.280
  • LOCAL CHURCH.
  • 00:19:20.290 --> 00:19:21.260
  • "BRING THE WHOLE TITHE INTO THE STOREHOUSE,"
  • 00:19:21.270 --> 00:19:26.000
  • SAYS THE LORD OF HOSTS.
  • 00:19:26.010 --> 00:19:28.130
  • THE WAY WE CREATE FINANCIAL MARGIN IS BY
  • 00:19:28.140 --> 00:19:31.020
  • OBEYING GOD IN EVERY AREA OF OUR FINANCES.
  • 00:19:31.030 --> 00:19:35.260
  • TRULY SOLOMON WAS RIGHT WHEN HE SAID IN PROVERBS 10:15,
  • 00:19:35.270 --> 00:19:39.090
  • "THE RICH MAN'S WEALTH IS HIS FORTRESS,
  • 00:19:39.100 --> 00:19:42.030
  • THE RUIN OF THE POOR IS THEIR POVERTY."
  • 00:19:42.040 --> 00:19:45.080
  • FINANCIAL MARGIN IN YOUR LIFE DOES GIVE YOU THE
  • 00:19:45.090 --> 00:19:47.190
  • FREEDOM TO DO WHAT'S RIGHT.
  • 00:19:47.200 --> 00:19:49.040
  • IT GIVES YOU THE SECURITY OF PREPARING
  • 00:19:49.050 --> 00:19:50.230
  • FOR YOUR FUTURE NEEDS.
  • 00:19:50.240 --> 00:19:51.270
  • IT GIVES YOU THE JOY OF SUPPORTING GOD'S WORK.
  • 00:19:51.280 --> 00:19:55.170
  • HOWEVER, THE BENEFITS OF MARGIN ARE LIMITED
  • 00:19:55.180 --> 00:19:59.050
  • TO THIS LIFE AND THIS LIFE ALONE.
  • 00:19:59.060 --> 00:20:02.060
  • YOU SEE, THERE'S ONE CONTINGENCY MARGIN
  • 00:20:02.070 --> 00:20:04.210
  • CANNOT PROTECT YOU AGAINST -
  • 00:20:04.220 --> 00:20:06.210
  • YOUR DEATH.
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:10.020
  • YOU REALIZE THAT?
  • 00:20:10.030 --> 00:20:10.280
  • DOESN'T MATTER HOW MUCH YOU ACCUMULATE -
  • 00:20:10.290 --> 00:20:12.170
  • IT ALL ENDS AT YOUR DEATH.
  • 00:20:12.260 --> 00:20:15.090
  • SOLOMON UNDERSTOOD THAT.
  • 00:20:15.100 --> 00:20:17.030
  • IN ECCLESIASTES 5:15-16 HE SAID,
  • 00:20:17.040 --> 00:20:20.150
  • "PEOPLE WHO LIVE ONLY FOR WEALTH COME TO THE
  • 00:20:20.160 --> 00:20:23.080
  • END OF THEIR LIVES AS NAKED AND EMPTY-HANDED
  • 00:20:23.090 --> 00:20:26.050
  • AS ON THE DAY THEY WERE BORN."
  • 00:20:26.060 --> 00:20:28.060
  • YOU'RE GOING TO BE AS NAKED THE DAY YOU DIE
  • 00:20:29.220 --> 00:20:31.180
  • AS THE DAY YOU WERE BORN.
  • 00:20:31.190 --> 00:20:32.120
  • ISN'T THAT A SOBERING THOUGHT?
  • 00:20:32.130 --> 00:20:34.010
  • YOU KNOW WHAT HE'S SAYING?
  • 00:20:34.020 --> 00:20:34.270
  • HE SAID JUST AS YOU CAME INTO THIS WORLD
  • 00:20:34.280 --> 00:20:37.040
  • WITH NOTHING, YOU LEAVE WITH NOTHING.
  • 00:20:37.050 --> 00:20:41.100
  • HE GOES ON TO SAY, VERSE 16,
  • 00:20:41.230 --> 00:20:43.080
  • "AND THIS, TOO, IS A VERY SERIOUS PROBLEM.
  • 00:20:43.090 --> 00:20:45.260
  • AS PEOPLE COME INTO THE WORLD,
  • 00:20:45.270 --> 00:20:47.080
  • SO THEY DEPART.
  • 00:20:47.090 --> 00:20:48.050
  • ALL THEIR HARD WORK IS FOR NOTHING.
  • 00:20:48.060 --> 00:20:51.210
  • THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR THE WIND,
  • 00:20:51.220 --> 00:20:53.030
  • AND EVERYTHING WILL BE SWEPT AWAY."
  • 00:20:53.040 --> 00:20:56.170
  • JESUS TOLD A GREAT STORY
  • 00:20:57.040 --> 00:20:59.000
  • TO ILLUSTRATE THAT TRUTH IN LUKE 12.
  • 00:20:59.010 --> 00:21:00.240
  • WE READ IT THIS MORNING.
  • 00:21:00.250 --> 00:21:02.140
  • REMEMBER IT WAS A STORY ABOUT A VERY WEALTHY MAN.
  • 00:21:02.150 --> 00:21:04.250
  • HE HAD SPENT HIS LIFE ACCUMULATING MARGIN,
  • 00:21:04.260 --> 00:21:08.010
  • A BUFFER ZONE IN HIS FINANCES,
  • 00:21:08.020 --> 00:21:09.260
  • AND HE HAD SUCCEEDED BEYOND HIS WILDEST IMAGINATION.
  • 00:21:09.270 --> 00:21:13.080
  • HE HAD SO MUCH EXTRA HE DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT.
  • 00:21:13.090 --> 00:21:15.280
  • HIS BARNS WERE OVERFLOWING WITH GRAIN.
  • 00:21:15.290 --> 00:21:17.270
  • HIS KIDS' EDUCATION WAS FULLY FUNDED.
  • 00:21:17.280 --> 00:21:20.000
  • HIS 401K PLAN WAS MAXED OUT.
  • 00:21:20.010 --> 00:21:23.010
  • AND HE STILL DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:24.070
  • ALL OF HIS MONEY.
  • 00:21:24.080 --> 00:21:25.140
  • IN FACT ONE NIGHT HE LAY AWAKE JUST SAYING:
  • 00:21:25.150 --> 00:21:28.020
  • WHAT IN THE WORLD AM I GOING TO DO
  • 00:21:28.030 --> 00:21:29.140
  • WITH ALL THIS EXCESS?
  • 00:21:29.150 --> 00:21:30.280
  • AND HE STARTED MAKING HIS PLANS: I'LL DO THIS.
  • 00:21:30.290 --> 00:21:33.000
  • I THINK I'LL DO THIS.
  • 00:21:33.010 --> 00:21:34.000
  • I'LL DO THIS.
  • 00:21:34.010 --> 00:21:36.030
  • AND THEN GOD CAME TO HIM AND SAID: YOU FOOL.
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:40.220
  • TONIGHT YOUR SOUL IS REQUIRED OF YOU.
  • 00:21:40.230 --> 00:21:45.210
  • THAT PHRASE IN GREEK LITERALLY MEANS:
  • 00:21:45.220 --> 00:21:47.220
  • YOUR LOAN IS DUE.
  • 00:21:47.230 --> 00:21:50.220
  • TONIGHT YOUR SOUL IS REQUIRED OF YOU.
  • 00:21:50.230 --> 00:21:52.270
  • TONIGHT YOU'RE GOING TO DIE,
  • 00:21:52.280 --> 00:21:55.120
  • AND WHO NOW IS GOING TO OWN WHAT YOU'VE SPENT
  • 00:21:55.130 --> 00:21:57.210
  • YOUR LIFE ACCUMULATING?
  • 00:21:57.220 --> 00:21:59.220
  • AND THEN JESUS ADDED THIS APPLICATION IN LUKE 12:21,
  • 00:22:01.110 --> 00:22:04.210
  • "SO IS THE MAN WHO LAYS UP TREASURE FOR
  • 00:22:04.220 --> 00:22:08.110
  • HIMSELF, AND IS NOT RICH TOWARD GOD."
  • 00:22:08.120 --> 00:22:13.020
  • LISTEN TO ME LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
  • 00:22:14.040 --> 00:22:16.040
  • THE VALUE OF MARGIN CEASES AT THE CEMETERY.
  • 00:22:17.200 --> 00:22:23.020
  • FROM THAT MOMENT THROUGHOUT ETERNITY,
  • 00:22:23.030 --> 00:22:26.080
  • ONLY YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST MATTERS.
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:30.080
  • BECAUSE THE TRUTH IS ONLY JESUS CHRIST CAN
  • 00:22:30.090 --> 00:22:32.290
  • PROVIDE YOU LASTING FREEDOM,
  • 00:22:33.000 --> 00:22:36.090
