MONDAY: Luke 19:1-10
Zacchaeus’ whole life changed when he encountered Jesus—even his finances. How has following Jesus changed the way you manage your money? How can you be SPENT FOR JESUS?
TUESDAY: Proverbs 3:5-12
Where do you place your trust? What areas of your life do you struggle to place in God’s trust? Pray Proverbs 3:5-6 this week. Write it in a place that you will see it every day; make it your wallpaper on your cell phone, place it on a mirror or tape it to the fridge.
WEDNESDAY: Matthew 7:7-12
Sometimes we do not have because we do not ask. Even though God knows the desire of your heart, have you asked God for what you need lately? What needs (financial or otherwise) do you have that you need to ask God for in prayer? Spend time this week asking and praying.
THURSDAY: Genesis 14:19-20
This is the first mention of tithe in scripture. A tithe is a tenth of all your resources. What have you been taught about tithing? Do you understand tithing? Do you practice tithing? Why or why not?
FRIDAY: 2 Chronicles 31:4-5
What does it mean for you to give your first fruits to God: time, emotions and money. Of these three what is your most challenging area? What daily changes do you need to make to be transformed in this area?
SATURDAY: Malachi 3:8-12
God does not beat around the bush in this scripture. What is God saying in these verses? Take an inventory of your finances—whether you bank online or use a checkbook. Where do you spend all of your resources? Are you giving your first fruits to God? What practical steps could you take to prioritize your finances? Consider taking Financial Peace University in January—offered Thursday evenings and Sunday mornings.
SUNDAY: Philippians 4:19-20
God will take care of you. Do you trust God to take care of your daily needs? Where have you seen God at work in your life? In your resources? In the people around you?
