Tips for MOP for Giving

Judea Samaria
Ends of the Earth
Tips for MOP for Saving
  • The Joseph Principle
  • a.k.a. The Storehouse Principle
  • The LORD will command the blessing on you in
    your storehouses and in all to which you set your
    hand, and He will bless you in the land which the
    LORD your God is giving you. Deuteronomy 288
  • Set aside a little every month. Learn to live
    within your means. That way, money is there for
    dealing with emergencies.

Tips for MOP for Spending
  • Live on a budget. Spend money without feeling
  • Chart your expenses for a month. Keep doing it.
  • Set up basic expense categories Giving,
    Mortgage, Car, Other Debt, Insurance, Utilities,
    Gasoline, Gifts, Dry Cleaning, Cable TV, Food,
  • Pay off your credit card every month.
  • Eat out less. Plan your meals.
  • Think of ways to have family fun that cost 0.

Truth 1 Be Content
  • But godliness actually is a means of great gain
    when accompanied by contentment. For we have
    brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take
    anything out of it either. If we have food and
    covering, with these we shall be content. But
    those who want to get rich fall into temptation
    and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires
    which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For
    the love of money is the root of all sorts of
    evil, and some by longing for it have wandered
    away from the faith and pierced
    themselves with many griefs. 1 Timothy

Truth 2 Trust in God!
  • Instruct those who are rich in this present
    world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on
    the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly
    supplies us with all things to enjoy. Instruct
    them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be
    generous and ready to share, storing up for
    themselves the treasure of a good foundation for
    the future, so that they may take hold of that
    which is life indeed. 1 Timothy 617-19

Personal Questions
  • Realizing how financially rich and materially
    blessed we are in this present world, personally
    and prayerfully consider these questions
  • How are we handling all God has entrusted us
  • Are we giving, saving, spending with a plan?
  • Are we content with food and clothing?
  • Are we trusting in God or in our money?

Discussion Questions
  • Giving How often do you give? To what do you
    give? Is there something you could sacrifice to
    be able to have more money to give? What are you
    going to teach your children about giving?
  • Saving Have you lived on less than you have
    earned? How about your kids? Do they have
    spending parameters so that they have some money
    saved? What is one new thing you could do to save
    or to teach them to learn to save?

Discussion Questions
  • Spending Do you purchase needs before wants? Are
    you paying off your credit card(s) every month?
    How are you teaching your kids good spending
  • Be Content Is your focus in life merely to get
    rich? How much is enough? Have you controlled
    your wants or are stuffocated? Whats one area
    you could work on?

Discussion Questions

    hope in stuff. Only God is worthy of our trust.
