Everyone Can Afford to Tithe

Read: Luke 12:13-21

A wealthy man in the Bible faced a problem many people would love to have: What do you do when you have more stuff than space to store it? The man had a phenomenal crop, more than he or his family could possibly use. But where would he keep all the excess? This rich man decided the perfect solution was to build bigger barns to safeguard his wealth. In an instant, the man’s seemingly unshakable empire came crashing down, with a reprimand from God: “You

fool. This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself? This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God” (Luke 12:20).

Here was a man who was filled with abundance, but as greedy as they come. It was because of his greed that this man met his death. You see, robbing God—the giver of life—will only end in robbing ourselves of true life. We all want to be prepared for the future, but how do you balance wise saving with generosity?

Think About:
1. What is one way to know when you’re being greedy?
2. How does generosity safeguard us against greed?
3. What can you give away today?

Pray:
Jesus, You have given me so much! Protect my heart from greed and show me how I can be generous today.
