GREEDILY GETTING OR GENEROUSLY GIVING?

“Take time to be thankful for everything you have. You can always have more, but you could also have less.” What is your attitude to possessions and money?

God will always make you rich enough to be generous……….              2 Corinthians 9: 11

1a. Introduction: Cover,  explanation of the programme contents and information about the Award Scheme Book-keeping Award.

1b. God Gave: Dramatise the effect  Mary  had on the disciples as she poured her expensive perfume on the feet of  Jesus.  Why did she give? Because Jesus had given so much to her. (John 12: 1-6)  Memory text: John 3: 16

2. Treasure: Are we greedily getting  or generously giving?  (Luke 12: 13 - 34)  Consider attitudes to belongings and how we can help others.

3.  Tithing: It is not so much about how much we give but how we give (Mark 12: 41 - 44) but tithing is good Biblical advice.  Play the tithing game.
