On Sunday, March 12, 2023 at Wildwood Community Church, I preached a message based on 1 Chronicles 29:1-16. This message was part 1 of the “In God We Trust” sermon series. Below you will find questions related to the message for personal reflection or group discussion. You will also find the audio and video of the sermon to listen to/watch, download or share.
- Read 1 Chronicles 29:1-16
- Why do you think the subject of “my money” is so emotional for all of us? Can you think of any examples when your emotions or anxieties were elevated as you were considering your resources?
- In 1 Chronicles 29:9, the people rejoiced at the opportunity to give. Have you ever experienced this feeling when giving away your resources? Describe that experience? What led to you having this feeling of joy as you gave?
- In 1 Chronicles 29:10-16, David prays to God and declares that ALL David and Israel had were actually the Lord’s. Personalize this statement for a moment. Did you realize that all you have is actually on loan from God? Take a brief inventory of all of the Lord’s resources He has entrusted to you in this season of your life.
- Take some time and pray and thank God for His provision He has given you to manage and steward at this time in your life.
- What are some ways you are challenged to alter the way you are handling God’s resources at this time in your life?
- Do you regularly give a percentage of your income away (as a reminder that ALL of the resources are ultimately the Lord’s)? When did you develop this rhythm? What led to you to begin giving? If you are not giving, what is preventing you from practicing this act of worship today?
- Why is it easier to trust Christ with our souls than with our stuff? Are you gently holding both with an open hand before Him today?
- What is one particular application you took away from this passage/message?
