Treasure Chest

I am currently working on a study about money and giving.  Below are a few of the verses that I have used in the study.  Take some time reflect on them for yourself; what is God trying to tell you?

1 Timothy 6:17-18 (NLT)
Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.

Mark 8:36 (NLT)
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?

1 Chronicles 29:12-14 (NLT)
Wealth and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and at your discretion people are made great and given strength. 13 “O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name! 14 But who am I, and who are my people, that we could give anything to you? Everything we have has come from you, and we give you only what you first gave us!
