I. INTRODUCTION

A. SOME OF THE MOST PERPLEXING PROBLEMS
FACING PEOPLE TODAY ARE ASSOCIATED
WITH FINANCIAL MATTERS.

1. FINANCIAL MATTERS CAN CAUSE
GREAT STRESS WITHIN A MARRIAGE.

2. A NATIONAL SURVEY DONE SEVERAL
YEARS AGO REPORTED THAT OVER ½
OF THE FAMILIES SURVEYED FOUGHT
A LOT OVER MONEY MATTERS.

B. THE BIBLE IS THE KEY THAT UNLOCKS THE
DOOR TO FINANCIAL MATTERS.

1. THE BIBLE HAS MUCH TO SAY ABOUT

2. “MONEY IS A WONDERFUL SERVANT,
BUT IT IS A HORRIBLE MASTER.”

3. ONE CAN’T SERVE TWO MASTERS.

4. MATTHEW 6:24 SAYS, “NO ONE CAN
SERVE TWO MASTERS, FOR EITHER HE
WILL HATE THE ONE AND LOVE THE
OTHER, OR ELSE HE WILL BE LOYAL
TO THE ONE AND DESPISE THE OTHER.
YOU CANNOT SERVE GOD AND
MAMMON.”

a. This is not a matter of advisability. It
doesn’t say you should not. That
would be a priority choice.


b. This is not a matter of accountability.
It doesn’t say you must not. That
would be a moral choice.

c. It says you canno ...
