The Parable of the Dishonest Manager 16 1He also said to the disciples: “There was a rich man who received an accusation that his manager was squandering his possessions. 2So he called the manager in and asked, ‘What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your management, because you can no longer be my manager.’ 3“Then the manager said to himself, ‘What should I do, since my master is taking the management away from me? I’m not strong enough to dig; I’m ashamed to beg. 4I know what I’ll do so that when I’m removed from management, people will welcome me into their homes.’ 5“So he summoned each one of his master’s debtors. ‘How much do you owe my master?’ he asked the first one. 6“ ‘A hundred measures of olive oil,’ he said. “ ‘Take your invoice,’ he told him, ‘sit down quickly, and write 50.’ 7“Next he asked another, ‘How much do you owe?’ “ ‘A hundred measures of wheat,’ he said. “ ‘Take your invoice,’ he told him, ‘and write 80.’ 8“The master praised the unrighteous manager because he had acted astutely. For the sons of this age are more astute than the sons of light in dealing with their own people.[I] 9And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of the unrighteous money so that when it fails,[J] they may welcome you into eternal dwellings. 10Whoever is faithful in very little is also faithful in much, and whoever is unrighteous in very little is also unrighteous in much. 11So if you have not been faithful with the unrighteous money, who will trust you with what is genuine? 12And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to someone else, who will give you what is your own? 13No household slave can be the slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t be slaves to both God and money.”   Kingdom Values   14The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things and scoffing at Him. 15And He told them: “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the sight of others, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly admired by people is revolting in God’s sight. 16“The Law and the Prophets were[K] until John; since then, the good news of the kingdom of God has been proclaimed, and everyone is strongly urged to enter it.[L] 17But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one stroke of a letter in the law to drop out. 18“Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and everyone who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery.   The Rich Man and Lazarus   19“There was a rich man who would dress in purple and fine linen, feasting lavishly every day. 20But a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, was left at his gate. 21He longed to be filled with what fell from the rich man’s table, but instead the dogs would come and lick his sores. 22One day the poor man died and was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s side.[M] The rich man also died and was buried. 23And being in torment in Hades, he looked up and saw Abraham a long way off, with Lazarus at his side. 24‘Father Abraham!’ he called out, ‘Have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this flame!’ 25“ ‘Son,’[N] Abraham said, ‘remember that during your life you received your good things, just as Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here, while you are in agony. 26Besides all this, a great chasm has been fixed between us and you, so that those who want to pass over from here to you cannot; neither can those from there cross over to us.’ 27“ ‘Father,’ he said, ‘then I beg you to send him to my father’s house— 28because I have five brothers—to warn them, so they won’t also come to this place of torment.’ 29“But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the prophets; they should listen to them.’ 30“ ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said. ‘But if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’ 31“But he told him, ‘If they don’t listen to Moses and the prophets, they will not be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.’ ”

If you can't manage your money now why would you get more. God gives you more when a person manages their gifts they have now. Even if you manage money you have now (budget and cut your friutless spending) you will find more money. Principles Of Gain 1:We have more then we think we do. -Clear the thoughts that you don't have enough. Do not let your mind stay stuck on money. If you do you lose sight of God. 2:We must start thinking longer term then short term. -If we have a short term mind set we will never be happy and sacrifice your principles. Having a pay now instead of play now mind will be more fruitful later in life. 3:We must determine the difference between Have to have and Need to have! -Think more at what is truly needed and how you need to get there in a positive way. There is no need for wasting Time Money or Focus on your goals. EFFECTIVE BUDGET SYSTEM 1:Write your goals Down. 2:Develop Your Plan :List your expenses :Start Saving :Cost of housing. -35% or less on housing 3:Add it up and make it balance 4:Follow Your Plan 5:Keep Good Records :Start a file folder 6:Review every Mo. :Stay focused. And don't get overly upset at slip ups. 7:evaluate and adjust regularly.

Just thought of that episode of Earl where the boys offer to just forgive him without his having to make it up to them. It's a lovely example of kingdom forgiveness.

29/1/12 Luke 16 v19 The rich man Why mission It is a command (great commission) It's in our nature ( grace ) People are going to hell!! It is our motivation, to be motivated we must believe in hell ourselves. What is hell like? - torment = great suffering -Burning in flames -you can never leave -no hope!

Deus conta a história de dois homens, uma muito rico e outro miserável, porém para ambos foi dado s oportunidade de conhecer a verdade sobre Deus. Porém Lázaro, mesmo que miserável temeu a Deus. Por sua vez o rico desprezou a Deus. E na eternidade tentou tomar cinco decisões muito tarde. 1- Ele ergueu os olhos. Lc 16:23. Por causa do afastamento de Deus o homem olha para baixo. Ele levantou seus olhos muito tarde. Durante os anos de sua vida ela olhava somente para coisas materiais e se esqueceu de Deus. Em lamentações 3:51 diz: o meu olho move a minha alma. Olhar para Jesus significa salvação, segurança, vitoria, entendimento. 2- ele orou. Lc16:24. E clamando disse... Ele durante toda sua vida nao se preocupou com as coisas de Deus. na bíblia diz em Is 55:6 diz: busque o Senhor enquanto se pode achar. Jeremias 33:3 diz clama a mim e responderti-ei, e anunciarei coisas grande que nao sabe. 3- Reconheceu a autoridade espiritual de Abraão. Lc 16:24 ... Abraão, meu pai... 4- Pediu água. Lc 16:24. Ele nao esta pedindo apenas água como h2o, mas aquela água que refrigera a alma, que restaura. Is 12:3. Sl 23:2-3. Água que traz alegria. Ez 47:1-12, água que Jesus ofereceu. Jô 4:10, 7:37-39. Água que verte do trono de Deus. Ap 22:1 água concedida a todo sedento. Água que esse homem viu e pediu tarde demais. Deus resta dando a nos hoje essa água da vida de graça. E Deus disse que essa pessoa que bebe dessa água ira fluir rios de água viva. 5- Desejou fazer a obra de evangelização. Lc 16:27-28. Esse homem teve no inferno paixão missionaria, compaixão das vidas, porém tarde demais. Ele se enganou na terra, amou as coisas e usou as pessoas. Sabe qual foi o maior pecado de Jonas? Falta de compaixão pelos homens. Jn 4:10-11. Conclusão: ergamos os olhos para Deus HOJE. Busquemos ao Senhor enquanto se pode acha-ló. Bebamos a água viva agora. Respeitemos toda a autoridade que Deus constituiu sobre nos e façamos com dedicação e urgência a obra da evangelização, pois a noite vem, enquanto ninguém poderá trabalhar.

God has blessed me more than I need. I am rich, but I will not trust in riches, but in Him. Because I have more, I will give more. Giving is a heart issue, not a head issue. Money changes things - enables us to do more for God. Money can also change US - for good or for bad.
