The Wealth of Wisdom Part 16

Sunday February 19, 2012

“Abundance Mentality” ( A word was given, a testimony given of God’s provision for a mission trip; the offering message: John 6:5-11; Deut. 28:5; sowing into mission trip to Honduras) Using Scriptures from Proverbs, Pastor Dale expounds on diligence and how it tends toward abundance. Using contrasts as many Proverbs do, the lazy man is contrasted to the diligent one. The lazy, slothful man lacks discipline and wastes and doesn’t put his money to work. Lazy people take from the labors of others. Diligence is toward working smart and increasing. The mark of maturity is delaying gratification. A man diligent in his business will stand before people of influence. Be diligent to know the state of your income and your budget. Imitate and follow those people who inherit the promises through faith and patience. There is a difference between the law of sowing and reaping over a lifetime and the miracle power of God. (Prov. 10:4;12:24, 27; 13:4; 21:5; 22:29; 27:23; Heb. 6:12)
