Sermon of the Week (7/13 - 7/19, 2014) Matt Chandler on Stewardship

I've been traveling all week and will do a post next week on the awesomeness of Denver. Podcasts are a part of my traveling, and I enjoyed hearing Matt Chandler's sermon on stewardship from his series entitled Grace Made Visible. There are some great principles about giving and the importance of financial discipline as a manifestation of spiritual discipline. I enjoyed Chandler's testimony about he handles the budget for his household weekly, checking expenses and balancing the checkbook. Not something he enjoys, but he does it for God's glory and exhorts his congregation to do likewise. He encourages everyone to live as minimally as possible and to be as content as possible, and relates it back to the Cultural Mandate of Genesis 1.

Key principles regarding money:
1. Money must be obtained through honest gain.
2. Money must be cared for diligently.

There are viewing and transcript options for the sermon here.
