Marking Code: Blue
Key Text: Psalm 50:10-12


  1. Psalm 50:10-12. The world and everything in it belongs to God. He is the owner of everything.


  1. Deuteronomy 8: 17,18. This is an example of the pagan theory of ownership. This theory says that whatever you have the power to take belongs to you.


  1. 1 Corinthians 4:2. This is the Christian theory of ownership. We own nothing; rather, we are stewards-or managers-of what God gives to us. We are to be faithful caretakers of what he entrusts to us.


  1. 1 Timothy 6:10. It is not money that is evil, but the love of money-greed and the craving for more.


  1. Exodus 20:8-11. God claims one-seventh of our time-the Sabbath-as His.


  1. Leviticus 27:30-33. God claims one-tenth of our income-the tithe-as His. The tithe is holy, just as the Sabbath is holy. God is testing our selfishness just as He tested Adam and Eve. He asked them not to eat of a particular tree. He asks us for one-seventh of our time (the Sabbath) and one-tenth of our income (the tithe). One out of every two parables Jesus told was about money. This subject of important because human beings are basically selfish. God wants to remove selfishness from our hearts through faithful stewardship of our time and money.


  1. Genesis 14:18-20. God instituted the tithe long before the Mosaic laws were given to Israel.


Genesis 28:20-22


  1. Numbers 18:20-24. The tithe is used to support the gospel ministry.


1 Corinthians 9:13, 14.


  1. Matthew 23:23. Jesus endorsed the tithing principle. 


  1. Malachi 3:8-11. The tithe is to be placed in the church treasury for the support of God’s work.


Nehemiah 13:10-13.

  1. 2 Corinthians 9:7. The motive or attitude with which we respond to God’s call to be stewards is important. God wants us to give cheerfully because we love Him.


  1. Malachi 3:10-12. If we are faithful in our stewardship, God promises to bless us abundantly. His promises are sure.


Proverbs 3:9,10.

Luke 6:38; 16:10-12.


  1. Matthew 6:19-21. Jesus urges us to store up treasure in heaven-rather than trying to amass treasure on earth.
