Session 16

Broke People Can’t Bless People

Read: Luke 10:25-37

Luke 10 tells the story of a Jewish man who is mugged and left for dead on the side of the road. Several people passed him. Then a Samaritan man came along. The Samaritan was the only one who came to the Jewish man’s rescue. The Samaritan used the supplies he had on him—oil, wine and two days wages—to help the wounded man recover.

The Samaritan was ready to bless others because he hadn’t spent what he had unwisely. Not only was he able to treat the wounded Jewish man, he blessed him on top of it! The  Samaritan took the man to an inn and gave the innkeeper two silver coins to cover the cost of the man’s care. He also pledged to reimburse the innkeeper if the wounded man’s expenses added up to more.

The Samaritan was prepared to be generous and God blessed someone through that. After all, we can’t bless others if we aren’t stewarding our own finances well. When we choose to save our money instead of spending all of it, we are equipped with tools to help others. You can’t bless someone if you’re broke.

 

Think About:

1. What could you do for God if money was not an issue?

2. Would you be able to give financially to someone who needs help?

3. How can you start saving today?

 

Pray:

Jesus, thank You for all the ways you provide for me. Help me to better manage the money You’ve entrusted to me, so I can do whatever You call me to do.
