Giving Money

Sun, 28/02/2016 - 10:30 -- James Oakley

Welcome to week 5 in our series on the theme of money. If you missed the first 4, they are all on our website. We have looked at what money is, earning money, spending money, and not having enough money. And today, we come to the theme of giving.

If you’re visiting us today, please do bear with us. We don’t talk about money often. We are far more interested in celebrating what God has given us. The money we give really is not what we’re about.

Not Having Money

Sun, 21/02/2016 - 10:30 -- James Oakley

This morning we return again to the theme of money. In January, we asked what money is, and then thought about how we get money and how we spend it. Today’s sermon is entitled “no money”. We’re going to be thinking about the theme of wealth and poverty.

The Bible recognises that poverty is a reality. Many cultures look down on the poor, and see them as somehow less important. The Bible never does that. It is refreshingly counter-cultural. No matter how much money someone has, or doesn’t have, they are a human being made in God’s image. We all have equal value.

Spending Money

Sun, 24/01/2016 - 10:30 -- James Oakley

“Surely we don’t need a sermon on how to spend money! That’s easy!”. So someone said to me last week.

But step back a bit, and ask how we are to use our money, and the Bible has a great deal to say.

If you missed either of the past two sermons on money, they’re both on our website. We’ve asked what money is, and we looked at earning money.

And now reach the third instalment. Spending money. Using money. And as you look at the Bible on this topic, it warns us of the three dangers. They come up again and again.

Earning Money

Sun, 17/01/2016 - 10:30 -- James Oakley

This week, a couple called David and Carol Martin from Scotland attended a news conference to be given a cheque for just over 33 million pounds. The National Lottery had rolled over 14 times in a row, bringing the jackpot to a record 66 million pounds. The Martins only won half of it, but I doubt they were complaining.

What is Money?

Sun, 10/01/2016 - 10:30 -- James Oakley

I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay. Ain't it sad. And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me. That's too bad. In my dreams I have a plan: If I got me a wealthy man, I wouldn't have to work at all, I'd fool around and have a ball

Money, money, money; Must be funny in the rich man's world. Money, money, money; always sunny in the rich man's world. Aha-ahaaa. All the things I could do if I had a little money: It's a rich man's world
