A Word To The Wealthy

Today Pastor Kevin begins a message series on stewardship: Saved by a Generous God to be a Generous People. Adam Hamilton states that "generosity is a fruit of spiritual growth…because giving requires that we trust God to supply our needs.” Many of us are wealthy by the world’s standards; the top 1% of wage earners in the world earn an average of $48,000 a year. In 1 Timothy 6, we find four commandments to the wealthy that show us how to maintain a balanced life and make the most of our resources.
