Money Matters (Sermon by Ptr. Clem Guillermo on Sunday, June 26, 2011 at MHF)

Hebrews 13:5-6
Matthew 16:26

Common Issues About Money (Termites in Marriage)
1) Too much or lack of money -
- Proverbs 30:8-9

2) Lack of initiative/laziness
- 1 Timothy 5:8

3) Easy money/Get rich quickly
- Proverbs 28:20
- 1 Timothy 6:9

4) Over-Spending- beyond your means (Materialistic Attitude)
- Hebrews 13:5-6

5) Financial Aid to the Family of Origin
- Genesis 2:24

6) Keeping up with the Joneses
- Luke 12:15

7) Lack of Family Planning
- It is a crime to have children more than you could care for and give a decent life.
- He who plans to fail, fails to plan

The issue of marital problems regarding money is not about money… it is our attitude about money.

Hebrews 13:5-6
Covetousness
1) spending – sense of pleasure, driven by lust
2) storing – sense of security, driven by fear
Both are motivated by greed.

Discontent
- while I don’t have the means, I am driven by an uncontrollable desire and want for things that I don’t have.

I fall into a trap: LOVE OF MONEY

1 Timothy 6:10
- strayed from the faith
- pierced oneself with many sorrows

Stewardship vs. Spender (squander) and Storer (sequester)

1 Timothy 6:17
- Trust GOD rather than MONEY.
- SHARE what you have with others.
- Lay up treasures in heaven.
