Make Space | Margin in Your Money
Make Space: Margin in Your Money
Psalm 90:1-2,12, Galatians 5:16, 22-23, Matthew 6:24-33
You can’t borrow TIME, but you can borrow MONEY.
Jesus makes our life, BECOME more like His life as we follow Him.
There is a huge difference between: STANDARD of living & QUALITY of life.
v.16 “So I say, WALK by the SPIRIT and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.”
v.22 “The FRUIT of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and SELF-CONTROL.”
Creating margin financially may LOWER your standard of living, but it will RAISE the quality of your LIFE.
DEBT doesn’t raise our quality of life, DISCIPLINE does.
“No one can serve two MASTERS, you cannot serve both God and money.”
If you haven’t surrendered what you HAVE, you haven’t really SURRENDERED.
“But seek FIRST his KINGDOM and his RIGHTEOUSNESS, and all these THINGS will be GIVEN to you as well.”
When we put me FIRST, me eventually comes in LAST.
We need to move from “Live. Save. Give.” to “Give. Save. Live.”
