Publisher's Description

We need to adopt the biblical values of thrift, generosity, contentment, and trust.


Overview


Pastor Doug Pagitt writes, Many of the church s young people are begging for a different relationship with money. Before churches can address the giving patterns of younger people, we may need to step back and see what larger message we re teaching people immersed in this over-heated consumer society.


This lesson draws from the practical insights of Pagitt s article and looks at three primary biblical texts to help us think more thoroughly about biblical values such as thrift, generosity, contentment, and trust.



Table of Contents


SCRIPTURE: Malachi 3:8 12; Acts 4:29 37; Revelation 18:9 24
