W21 | STEP 1 | Wednesday - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
I believe we have the tapping sound stopped now.
I have to leave see you all next week.
Zoom is not allowing me to put you all in groups tonight, I apologize. Please bear with us and I will turn the sound back on when we start back up.
Anyone want to type the questions in the chat?
Ok, thanks! Here’s the questions:
What stood out to you in this teaching?
How might you summarize this class in your own words?
What questions do you have about stewardship?
For you, what is the most difficult thing to apply from what you learned?
Thanks, Karen! I think stewardship boils down to perspective/ humility - It both a test and a tool to see if your thinking is right and help correct your thinking
I am lost here
To me, I think I’m learning a lot and growing more with God, and hearing from elders or just people who are close with the Lord helps me a lot. The hardest thing to learn to tonight was that I need to steward my time with God a lot better, and that everything I do shoaled be a sacrificial offering to the Lord.
If you are operating under the truth, you know everything is Gods and you can live life with open hands, but the sin nature says that things belong to us, and our time and our gifts our ours and not from and belonging to God
It’s nice to hear you think you are learning and growing Christina! That’s an exciting place to be! Praying for you that you stay in this place and keep after that growth and keep surrendering what God calls you to surrender
Steven, are you lost in terms of stewardship or zoom?
That is very true about sinful nature saying things belong to us. God has graced us with everything we have. I wrote down in my notes - “do I truly trust God with my finances” - to go beyond tithing into overall giving.
Thank you so much! That’s so good!
Another thing to note - what platform has God given you to reach people with HIs love and Word. Made me think - “what gifts/talents do I have to steward?”
It’s such a constant thing too, Karen, I used to tithe my whole life, until this past year I haven’t had a church and so I haven’t been, and I’ve actually felt nervous to find a church because I don’t want to have to tithe, but I’m surrendering it to God and confessing that it’s not based in the truth and is a lie of the enemy, I have enough to tithe
I did not grow up in the church, I did not start tithing until a year into my full time job. Once I started to tithe I experienced the rewards that they were talking about tonight.
<3 yeah I’ve never been in financial issues because of tithing
God is good
Always good and faithful!
I’ll be praying about that for you! It’s good you notice that, Thanks for sharing that!
Thanks for powering through and chatting, friends!
Thanks Christina! I appreciate it a lot!
Can you all hear Ron?
I don’t think that was the question - I think she asked if a church misused the money without you knowing is the blessing withheld due to their actions - the answer is no - as far as it its with you be faithful, your blessing is yours because it’s your heart
Have a good week guys!
