First Things First Pt. 4 “First Of Your Month”

February 28, 2021

How to avoid drifting.

We must pay the most careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. – Hebrews 2:1 NIV 

1 Corinthians 16:2 Living Bible

2 On every Lord’s Day each of you should put aside something from what you have earned during the week, and use it for this offering. The amount depends on how much the Lord has helped you earn. Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once.

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

God doesn’t need our money, but he desires to set us free from our need for more and more of it. 

 LIFE GROUP DISCUSSION

Start talking. 

  • As it relates to money, how would your friends describe you? A. Spender / B. Savor / C. Balanced

Start thinking. 

  • Why do you think God asks us to give of our money regularly even though He doesn’t need one cent of it? 
  • How do you think giving of your money regularly would change how you live, think, or feel?

Start sharing. 

  • Read and discuss: 1 Corinthians 16:2 Living Bible – 2 On every Lord’s Day each of you should put aside something from what you have earned during the week, and use it for this offering. The amount depends on how much the Lord has helped you earn. Don’t wait until I get there and then try to collect it all at once.

 

  • Read and discuss: 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 Living Bible – 6 But remember this—if you give little, you will get little. A farmer who plants just a few seeds will get only a small crop, but if he plants much, he will reap much. 7 Everyone must make up his own mind as to how much he should give. Don’t force anyone to give more than he really wants to, for cheerful givers are the ones God prizes. 8 God is able to make it up to you by giving you everything you need and more so that there will not only be enough for your own needs but plenty left over to give joyfully to others.
  • Share stories of how God has been faithful to you because of your generosity.

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

  • Take time to share prayer requests and pray for one another. 

Start doing. Create a step the group can commit to and live it out this week.

  • Percentage giving is a great step toward prioritizing God over your money. Pick a percentage and begin giving regularly. It will change your life!
