5 THINGS TO REMEMBER ABOUT MONEY: (Ptr. Ed Lapiz) 1. Money is to be earned. Why? Because money is a shelter, it gives protection Ecc. 7:12 It is a Shelter from our needs/insecurities/wants. We should make money, honest money. Clean money grows.Prov 13:11 Little by ;ittle not quick money earned through devious means. Tiyaga, pinaghirapan. Not just physical na pagkawala , means decreasing enjoyment or satisfaction from money. Money a blessing from God , to be multiplied, to be invested, not just to be spent God loves seeing money being multiplied - Matthew 25:16the parable of the talents Pinalago ang pera at naging times 5. Matthew 25:27 You should have put my money on the bank as deposit. The Lords wants our money to multiply not to be depleted to the last penny! Make more money than we need, why? Eph 4:28 We must work. Parts of our money / surplus money- need to be shared Taxi driver natutulog na kc nakaboundary na Lordship/kingship we give back to Him His due/tax evasion treachery to the State; it is a tribute; pagkilala na ang Diyos an gating hari; not just for practical use for the church to use them Meron bang kaharian na di ka magbabayad ng buwis? Kawawa ka naman mahirap ka wag ka naming magbigay Jesus did not say that to the widow. This poor widow has put more in the treasury than the others. Di siya pinigilan ng Panginoon. Ang binibilang Lord: amount ng natira sayo pagkabigay mo. Make money. 1. To meet our needs 2. To give to others 3. To offer to God God loves offerings; pagkilala na galling sa Kanya ang lahat ng mabubuting bagay. That I can also make a dramatic grand offering for the advancement of God s kingdom. 2. Money should be enjoyed. Money should be spent on what truly satisfies Isa 55:2. Eat what is good. Why spend money on what is not bread? Ano ano bang pinagbibili niyo mga kapatid? Money is useless in the hands of a fool Prov 17:16. Anong katuturan ng pera kung ang may hawak ay hindi marunong. Of what use is money in the hands of a fool? Hindi bagay ang pera sa hindi marunong. The bible says that. Are we always wise? Because if we are not, that will be taken from us. San ba lumalapit ang pera? Saa mga taong marooning magtiya, magtrabaho, marunong magimpok. Gusto tayong magkapera? Dapat maging marunong tayo Money is not be loved, not to be served. Love for money- diminishes its value. Ecc 5:10 never has money enough, never satisfied with its income Money- nagiging amo; brings much evil
Hirap ng dinadala, iniiimbento. Free from the love of money. Love spending it correctly. Walang katuturan ang perang ginagasta pero sa dapat pagkagastusan. Never will I leave you people who hate their own godliness; securing their future Help those who are in needs. Use money correctly, God will replace it if the Spirit leads you. God will be there for you tomorrow. Sadly, if you don t let yourself be led by the Spirit, God is not going to replace it. We should be submissive to the righteousness of God. Emergency needblinded by the needs of others. We have to let go if it is Spiri-led. Nakakatakot, doing things out sa kagustuhan ng Lord, God wont replenish it. You have to be very prayerful. 3. Money is to be used in our service to God. God is not yo be use in our service to money. The power of money is in its disbursement. Use it correctly. Tamang amount. Tamang kakalagyan. When God is pleased, He will always replenish. God is always able. Our capacity to receive is determined by our capacity to use it wisely. 4. Money is not evil, love of money is. Ecc 10:19 Money is the answer to many things. But never to love it. Make money, be productive. 1 naghahanap-buhay , 6 nakaasa. Hingi ditto hingo doon. Size ng paa, padala ng padala. Debut 18 candles, Php 18 di pa kumita. Luke 19:26 Blaming others. Hingdi excuse na tayo ay mahirap magnanakaw na tayo NUng nagkapera ba tayo, ininvest ko ba or pinaparty? Hingi ng hingi ng pera sa nagtatrabaho. Habang maiksi ang kumot, mamaluktot. Tapos naiinggit sa mga yumayaman. Eh ano naman ang ginagawa nila, agaga magtrabaho, ang sisipagtrabaho ng trabaho maghapon diba? Tiya na abroad ang asawa, ayan madaming savings yan- wala tayong inisip kundi utangan ng utangan Kayo ba ang nalulunglot sa lungkot na wala ang asawa niya, di ka naman kasama sa lungkot pero kasama kayo sa gastos! Minsan mahirap umasenso sa ating bayan, mga tao sa paligid mo walang ginawa kundi pitas an ka ng pitasan ka ng huthutan, hanngan kasama k a na din nila sa lusak! Ang dapat lang tinultulungan maysakit, sobrang bata pa at sobrang matanda na. Mga mahirap, dapat maawa sa akin ang Lord etc dapat ako tulungan etc. Kilan ba ako binigyan ng Lord? Bakit ang mga kamay at paa mo ba hindi bigay ng Diyos? God does not expect you to be a millionare, basta mag minimum wage man lang. We are custodians of these talents God has given us. God is fair, Lahat binibigyan nga kaalaman. God even takes the little money that the lazy AND UNPRODUCTIVE PEOPLE have. We need to be productive. We must make honest money. Money is a good shelter. 5.
