Episode #11: Money, Stuff, and the Christian Family

by Brian Yamabe on December 22, 2011

In this episode, Josh and I talk about how we teach and live out Christian stewardship in our families. We recognize that the topic can focus too much on “do this, don’t do that” but as always we work toward focusing on Christ and His work that allows us to be Christian stewards.

Scripture:

Genesis 2:15  - The LORD God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. (ESV)

2 Corinthians 8:5 - and this, not as we expected, but they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us.

1 Timothy 6:17-19 - As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, thus storing up treasure for themselves as a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is truly life.
