Proverbs 8:15-21 “By me kings reign, And rulers decree justice. 16“By me princes rule, and nobles, All who judge rightly. 17“I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me. 18“Riches and honor are with me, Enduring wealth and righteousness. 19“My fruit is better than gold, even pure gold, And my yield better than choicest silver. 20“I walk in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice, 21To endow those who love me with wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.

You gotta have faith!

The Treasure Principle: For Such a Time as This

If your obituary was written today, what would it say?

Do you think anything in that obituary would help your case when you are brought before the judgement seat of Christ?

How would you like to have the kind of obituary at which all of Heaven would rejoice?

Jesus can help you to have that kind of a life.

The Treasure Principle: Getting Started

There’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.  A lot of people say they believe in Jesus, but sadly there are less whose lives demonstrate a real faith in God.  What do you believe in?

The Treasure Principle: Obstacles to Giving

Everybody knows that you can’t take anything with you when you die.  So why do so many people cling so tightly to the things they know won’t last?  Why is it so difficult to live by faith and trust the God really is in charge?  Maybe a different perspective will give you some insight.

The Treasure Principle: Eyes on Eternity

Do you ever think about the future or the direction of your life?  Some people only think as far as their next meal.  Others might make plans a week or so in advance.  A small portion will think about the years ahead and make plans for a future career or retirement.  But the very smartest have their eyes on eternity.  They think about what the rest of life is leading up to.

How about you?

The Treasure Principle: Compounding Joy

What would your life be like if you didn’t own anything–if everything you needed was provided to you on a daily basis for your entire life, but you finished every day without actually owning anything?

Would you have a different attitude about how you lived?

What if I told you that ultimately, that is the reality of life.  We enter the world without property and leave it the same way.

So how does that effect your thoughts about everything you thought you owned?

Listen to the message and see how freeing that truth can be!

The Treasure Principle: Buried Treasure

The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure, hidden in a field, that a person found and hid. Then because of joy he went and sold all that he had and bought that field.

Trust & Obey

Mar

Trust & Obey–two great tastes that taste great together.  If you know God very well at all, then you know he’s not just looking for drones to go out and do his bidding like a bunch of worker bees.  Everything that he has done for us has been in the attempt to build and maintain a relationship.  It’s amazing to think how far God is willing to go to demonstrate his love.  And when you really understand that, it’s one of the biggest motivators for wanting to live your life for Him.  It’s like when you’re dating and you’re willing to do pretty much anything to impress somebody that you like.  But the difference is, God already knows everything about you, and he still loves you more than you can imagine.  That kind of love is worth investing your life in!
