Monday Morning Commentary

Yesterday we continued our series, Consider the Source, with a very challenging message.  Last week Pastor Steven taught us, “Don’t forget where you come from.”  This week he taught us, “There’s more where that came from.”

He gave us 4 questions to see if we have a MORE mindset or a SCARCITY mindset.

  1. Do I see myself as ENTRUSTED or ENTITLED?  Duet. 8
    Any blessing I don’t turn back to praise turns into pride.
  2. Do I give out of RELATIONSHIP or RELUCTANCE?  2 Corinthians 9:7
    For God so loved the world that He gave!  Love gives!
  3. Do I give out of OBEDIENCE or is it OPTIONAL?  2Tim 6:17-19
    It’s not a decision, it’s devotion.  If you wait until the optimal time to give, you will never do it!
  4. Do I want to MULTIPLY or MAINTAIN?  John 6:32-35
    When you bring the resource to the source, it becomes MORE!!

The message was so challenging I especially love the encouragement at the end that when I keep all the resources I have been given, that’s all it will be but everything that I give to God multiplies!

You can watch the message today on the Elevation Network, in our archive and on our podcast.

And don’t forget, every sermon is also available on the Elevation App for your smart phone.

Have a great Monday!
