We are glad you have chosen to join us today. May these verses of Scripture help deepen your experience of God this morning as well as be a resource beyond today.

Scriptures: 

Philippians 4:10-13

10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

 

Hebrews 13:5-6

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,

“Never will I leave you;
    never will I forsake you.”

So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
    What can mere mortals do to me?”

1 Timothy 6:6-10 (NIV)

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

 

Still Waters, Quiet Waters

By Jenny Jattan

 

The Lord’s my shepherd I’ll not want

He makes me down to lie

In pastures green, He leadeth me, the quiet waters by

My soul He doth restore again, and me to walk doth make

Within the paths, of righteousness

Even for His own name’s sake

Even for His own name’s sake

 

The Lord’s my shepherd I’ll not want

He makes me down to lie

In pastures green, He leadeth me

The quiet waters, the quiet waters, the quiet waters by

Within the paths of righteousness

Even for His name’s sake

My soul he restores

Help me Lord when I walk through the straight and narrow way

My endless love for you prevails

I’ll not stray

 

 

 

Going Deeper with LIVING RICH

Finding Contentment

May 1st, 2016

 

 

Warm Up:

What is the myth that the world tends to teach when it comes to being “rich”?

If someone told you they believed that the more you have the more happy you would be what would you say?

 

Diving In:

  • Psalm 23:1 says “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not WANT”. How radical is this concept to you and how would you explain the meaning of this verse?
  • Living Rich means recognizing your blessings and those simple pleasures. If you were to think about the last 24 hours of your life (or even the last week if you’re a keener J) what kinds of things would come to mind?
  • Living Rich also means finding contentment in all circumstances. Read Paul’s words in Philippians 4:10-13 and considering that Paul wrote this from a jail cell. What does this say about contentment even in hard times? What role does God play in that?
  • Living Rich means having a healthy spirit when it comes to money as well.

1 Timothy 6:10 says “the love of money is the root of all evil”. What is the difference between saying “money is evil” and “the love of money is evil”?

 

  • What is the key message from God when it comes to “living rich” and “finding contentment” for you?

 

Take Home:

Try using the phrase “I am blessed” this week when people ask you how you’re doing. What kind of reaction does it bring? How does it impact you?

Another option would be to use the mantra “living rich” or “we’re rich” when you start to worry about finances this week.

Start preparing for next Sunday by reflecting on times when you have given God your best and how it felt  J
