GIVING SERMON OUTLINES

by Miles McPherson

When Pastor Miles was a child, his mother used to take him and his siblings to church each Sunday. Each child was given an envelope with a coin to put in the offering. This was simply a starter kit to tithing, as she was teaching her children to give. In this series, we have learned that God is the source of all good gifts and that He gives to us that we may be...

Stewardship through tithing did not begin with the Mosaic Law, but as a part of Abraham's faithfulness to God. Abraham was well before the law. Abraham was the picture of justification by faith that points directly to our faith in Christ. Abraham was not justified by the law, but by trusting God. It is through Abraham's faith that the first tithe was given. The principle…

Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, they will pour into your lap. For whatever measure you deal out to others, it will be dealt to you in return. I want to let it be clearly understood that I don't preach on stewardship every Sunday. But I do believe that stewardship is as much a part of...

Well this morning we're going to be talking about faith for your finances. I know if you never have any financial problems then maybe you can listen to this message and help someone else out. But if you have financial problems, if you ever have financial need I think this message will be a blessing for you...

Be honest with me! In the past years of your Christian life experience, when you have heard the word stewardship, has your immediate reaction been more positive or more negative? Over the years has the negative factor grown? Does the word automatically bring to mind financial matters? Does the word seem to arouse a spirit of obligation on your part? Do the...

In a recent 20/20 broadcast (May 4, 2000), Diane Sawyer interviewed a young, freewheeling, self made billionaire named Mark Cuban. Cuban made his fortune in computer and Internet businesses. Nothing remarkable about that. But it is remarkable that he appears to have had such fun in his line of work. Mark Cuban is a...

Money, in a sense, is life, because we spend all our lives getting it for the purpose of staying alive. Now money itself is amoral . . . it's not good, and it's not bad. But depending on how it is used, it either becomes good or bad. So money can cause either righteous or unrighteous ramifications in our lives. Thus, our concept of money becomes very important. For this study...

Today I want to talk about a church member's responsibility to contribute to the offering. I know there are a lot of ways to contribute to a church. We can contribute our time and our talent. But that does not co-opt our responsibility to contribute our money. Contributing to the offering is a part of church membership for three reasons...

Dr. W. A. Criswell, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, Texas, tells a humorous story one time of a man who was coming down to be baptized. When he got almost into the water he stopped and said, "Wait a minute, Dr. Criswell, I forgot to take out my billfold." Dr. Criswell said before he could say another word he jerked him into the water, baptized...

Paul is writing to the Church at Colosse. Some of the believers there had fallen into heresy--the worshipping of angels, observing dietary laws, circumcision, etc. They were once again placing themselves under the Old Testament Law and the Sabbath. That's why he admonishes them in (2:16), "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or…

by David Cawston

Today I want to talk to you about Generous giving! We all have funny ideas about relationship with God and giving money. Man threw his money in the air. What stays up God keeps, and what falls to the ground is mine.To do so requires that I talk about money! The Bible directly mentions money over 800 times and...

For some reason my children never connected with the Veggie Tales videos. I, however, love them. Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato are the best! In King George and the Duck, an adaptation of the story of David and Bathsheba, Larry the Cucumber stars as King George and Bob the Tomato is his faithful servant, Lewis...

Many years ago, a young boy of 16 had decided to leave home because his father was too poor to support him any longer. So, the day came...he left home with all his worldly possessions in a bundle dangling from his hand, resolving as he journeyed, to set up in business as a soap maker in New York. Remembering the last words of his...

For most people the subject of giving is really a grind. A lot people when they think in terms of giving have a little natural reluctance to even talk about the subject. I suppose the reasons for this is that there is a streak of stinginess in all of us and we really don't want to talk too much about giving and depriving ourselves of...

Missions Warm Up Day. We're asking God today for direction regarding how much He would have us give next Sunday to our World Mission Offering. Our goal this year is $400,000.00 ... the largest mission goal we have ever had in our 65 year history as a church! Now I can hear somebody say, ''Pastor, what a...

by Jimmy Evans

As the children of Israel sought God through fasting, prayer and religious exercise, they failed to find the key to God's heart. This produced an increasing frustration in their lives to the point that they increased their religious seeking and God thereby responded to their cry with the answer they were looking for...

April is our annual month of mission emphasis. We have heard about missions and heard from missionaries. We take the month of April every year to emphasize missions for the purpose of reminding ourselves of the importance of missions, and that, supporting missionaries is being obedient to the command of God as...

Today I want to explore with you the words of Jesus when he said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35). But I want to begin not with the giving side of this verse, but the receiving side. Although Jesus' words emphasize "giving," they also stress the importance of "receiving." It is more blessed to give, but receiving has a...

W. Fields opened Mrs. Fields cookies--some great cookies. She was age 20 and for several days she didn't have one single customer and then she got this idea. She filled a platter with cookies and she went out on the sidewalk and started giving cookies away and then people started following her into the store to...

If you have your Bible, I want us to open God's word to Second Corinthians Chapter 9; we are going to begin in Verse 6. We are talking about the exciting theme of Opening the Windows of Heaven. I believe God is wanting to open the windows of heaven to our church. I'm telling you these three services and I'm...
