Pointmakers – “Trust”
Week 1 – We’re inspired by our past, but we’re passionate about our future.
Week 2 – The vision for North Point is so big, it will require all of us to participate.
I don’t give to grow financially. I give to grow spiritually.
God’s not after my treasure. He wants my trust.
Matthew 6:24 (The Voice) No one can serve two masters. If you try, you will wind up loving the first master and hating the second, or vice versa. People try to serve both God and money—but you can’t. You must choose one or the other.
Proverbs 11:24 (The Message) The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.
The Generosity Ladder:
(graphic being a ladder and 4 different rungs – so starting at the bottom?)
(“initial” at bottom)
1st Rung – Initial Giver
2nd Rung – Consistent Giver
3rd Rung – Percentage Giver
4th Rung – Opportunistic Giver
Philippians 1:6 (The Voice) I am confident that the Creator, who has begun such a great work among you, will not stop in mid-design but will keep perfecting you until the day Jesus the Anointed, our Liberating King, returns to redeem the world.
Bottom Line: The test of our trust is the location of our treasure.
