When God Grows My Giving (November 2022)

The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it,
               The world, and all who live in it.

These words open Psalm 24 – the often-overlooked worship poem that follows Psalm 23. But while the 24th isn’t as well known as the “Shepherd's Psalm,” it declares with equal confidence that we are overseen, protected, and sustained by a loving and good God.

The Bible is unequivocal in its claim that everything – not just the “whats” but also the “whos” in this world belong to the Lord. But God has entrusted these things – resources, time, capacity, spiritual gifts – to men, women, and children as capital to invest in God’s vision of cultivating and blessing the world. In his parable of the talents, Jesus indicates that it frustrates God deeply when we do not make use of what he has given us.

This November, we’ll take a look at four investment opportunities God extends – investment of our energy, our finances, our spiritual gifts, and our gratitude. Along the way, we’ll see how God honors those projects with flourishing ministry and kingdom impact.
