In 2007-2008 savings and stock portfolios lost 14 trillion dollars because of bad home mortgages (actually greed but that’s another story). The government spent another 10 trillion to bail out the banks. And all this when just 1 trillion could have purchased every home that had been foreclosed on!

The point? Your money is better invested in the Bank of heaven. Watch Investing 101 to find out how you can do that and why you should do that.  FYI:  IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW OR NOTICE in the video description it says SERMON STARTS at 31:47.  That time, “31:47”, is a link that when clicked on, takes you right to the starting point of the sermon.

I’m encouraging all my church members to follow the formula on this Tithe Envelope in obedience to God’s over arching plan laid out in Malachi 3:8-10 and see if we will be able to say at the end of 2020 that we see (20/20) God’s leadership in our lives more clearly, that we’ve experienced Him more deeply and that our church has been able to minister more fully.

Now [we are] urged to begin building wisely and for eternity, casting aside the rubbish of apostasy and unbelief, and using as foundation material the pure gold, the refined silver, the precious stones–faith and obedience and good works–which alone are acceptable in the sight of a holy God.  {PK 409.3}
