Secrets of God's Economy

This week, Pastor Josh continued his brand new message series, Secrets of God's Economy with a message titled Be a Ronald, Don't Be a Richard. If you missed any of his message, we've got you covered with his message notes and a link to his message below: 

Message Notes

  1. God’s economy requires a kingdom mindset.
  2. Everything I have comes from God and belongs to God. I am not the owner.
  3. One of the primary reasons God created man was for management.

Genesis 2:4-5 (NIV)
This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the Lord God made the earth and the heavens. Now no shrub had yet appeared on the earth and no plant had yet sprung up, for the Lord God had not sent rain on the earth and there was no one to work the ground,

  1. God protects his resources from bad management 
  2. God withholds resources from bad management 
  3. God won’t allow growth under bad management 

Management is the effective, efficient, correct, and timely use of another individual's resources that they delegated for the purpose of producing the expected added value back to the owner.

Greed is the mismanagement of resources for personal benefit.

Mark 7:22-23 (NIV)
adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.  All these evils come from inside and defile a person.”

Luke 12:15
Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

Miracles cancel Management.

Matthew 12:38-39 (NIV)
Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from you.”  He answered, “A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.

God doesn’t give you what you pray for; He gives you only what you are able to manage well.

Secret #4 - Everything in the Kingdom of God starts small.

Zechariah 4:10 (NLT)
Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”

A good manager will take a little and makes the most of it.

Traits of a Good Manager
  • Accountable
  • Discipline
  • Faithful
  • Honesty
  • Trustworthy
  • Diligence

Proverbs 13:11 (NIV)
Dishonest money dwindles away, but whoever gathers money little by little makes it grow.
