So many pastors and church leaders want their members to be winning with their money (God's way), but aren't sure how to get those conversations off the ground. So, how do you establish a solid foundation in your church for teaching and applying biblical financial principles?
Better yet, how do you encourage biblical financial principles and facilitate community conversation around them? We know from scripture that community is where people find joy and accountability.
"Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!"
This applies to those on a financial journey also! Imagine the people in your church, encouraging each other to practice God-honoring stewardship and radical generosity. For your church (like most), authentic community and discipleship probably take place within your small groups.
Is there a better way for individuals, couples, and families to grow in their understanding and practice of biblical stewardship than in community with each other? We don't think so. It just makes sense to learn and live it out together.
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near."
