Do You Have Enough Money?

Let me guess… No! None of us ever feel like we have the money we need to do all of the ministry we want to do. But the truth is that you have enough money to do everything God has in store for you and your church. The question is not whether it is there; the question is whether or not you understand the importance of tapping into it in the right way…

Every dollar you need to do ministry is in the pockets of your regular attenders and members. To often, we just don’t know how to harness the power of that money like the Bible says we should.

Let me remind you of a critically important truth – Financial stewardship is inseparably linked to spiritual growth. If your people aren’t giving like they should, they aren’t growing like they should.

That means that if you aren’t challenging them to bring the full tithe, you are doing them a disservice as their pastor. And you are also doing your church and its ministry a disservice. But when your regular attenders and your members are giving as they ought to, your church will be fully financed. That’s the way God set it up. Not to mention the fact that you will have a church full of faithful, growing Christians!

So, next time you feel like you don’t have enough money, step back and take a hard look at the situation… are your people bringing the full tithe? Why not? Are you challenging them to give in the ways we’ve all been instructed to give? If not, your problem isn’t a money problem, it’s a stewardship problem.
