Welcome to the Transformed podcast.
Details matter! This is the whole point of the Biblical principle of “managing,” which is called “Stewardship” in the Bible.
Stewardship is the “careful use, control and management of the possessions of another that have been entrusted to one. The term is also used to refer to the responsible use of wealth and possessions by Christians.”
Since God has given us incredible resources as Americans, we can be sure that God wants us to be faithful! What better way to prove our faithfulness, than to keep accurate records of what we have and how we have used it?
In this study, Dr. Matthew Lee Smith, Lead Pastor at Pacific Baptist Church in El Segundo, California explains that our personal accounting system provides us with 4 specific benefits as a child of God.
As we open our Bibles, let’s join Pastor Smith as he answers the question, Does God care about my bookkeeping skills?
As Dr. Smith prayed for the congregation, he was also thinking of you! Know that it is his deepest desire to see you enjoy the benefits of the wisdom of God when it comes to your finances.
If you would like to explore how to enjoy a deeper life with God, one that God is pleased with, Dr. Smith has written a daily devotional book that will help you do just that!
In His Presence is a detailed look at walking with God through life’s ups and downs. Built around the premise that God welcomes you into His presence with joy and pleasure, In His Presence helps you see that the life of abundance can only be enjoyed when we take everything to the Lord and walk every day at His right hand.
You can order a copy of In His Presence from Amazon by clicking the link on the side panel of the Eagles In Leadership website.
Today’s episode was recorded live in El Segundo, California and edited by Ryan Longsworth in Los Angeles, California.
And now, until next time, we are praying that you would be filled with the love of God so that you can demonstrate His love to the lost and dying in your city! God bless!
