by Roby Ellis          SPANISH/ESPAÑOL

[Scripture Reading: Proverbs 30:8-9]


A. When we think about money, we must first realize that everything belongs to God (1 Chronicles 29:14; Psalm 50:10-12).

B. Will we give an account of the way we use the financial means God gives us here on earth? How should we be using them?

I. Money can be either a blessing or a curse.

A. Money can be good (1 Timothy 5:8; Proverbs 19:6-7).

B. It can also be dangerous (Ecclesiastes 5:10-12; Proverbs 27:20; 11:28).

C. There are many things more valuable than money (Proverbs 16:16; 22:1; 11:4; 23:4-5).

II. A good steward always acquires money honestly.

A. A man should provide an honest day’s work for every day’s pay (Proverbs 10:4; 28:19; 20:4; 2 Thessalonians 3:10).

B. One should never compromise integrity to get ahead financially (Proverbs 20:10; 21:6; 22:16; 20:17).

III. A good steward is careful about how he spends his money.

A. First of all, he gives generously (Proverbs 11:25; 3:9-10; 19:17).

B. He is discerning about what he purchases (Proverbs 21:17).

C. He always pays his debts promptly (Proverbs 3:27-28).

D. He anticipates future expenses (Proverbs 6:8; Genesis 41:47-49).

E. He tries to leave an endowment to the next generation (Proverbs 13:22; 20:21).


A. The key to happiness is not money, but contentment (Philippians 4:11).

B. As we plan our budgets for this coming year, let us remember that all we have in this life belongs to God.
