Money Makes The World Go Around
What sorrow for the land ruled by a servant the land whose leaders feast in the morning. Happy is the land whose king is a noble leader and whose leaders feast at the proper time to gain strength for their work, not to get drunk. Laziness leads to a sagging roof; idleness leads to a leaky house. A party gives laughter, wine gives happiness, and money gives everything.
Ecclesiastes 10:16-19 (NLT)
As young adults, talking about money can make us uncomfortable, stressed, and anxious, yet it is something that impacts everything that we do throughout our lives. In this message, we explore why God cares about money, how to dream for our finances, and how to create a healthy attitude for our money now.
Are you using your money on yourself today, on materials, leaving nothing for tomorrow to help you accomplish your God-given dreams? Or are you using your money wisely, fulfilling what you’ve set out for and to love God, and others like Yourself?
Growing up, what was your view of money?
Do you have goals when it comes to your money? What are they?
What dreams for your future include money? What needs to be practiced now to see those dreams become reality?
What are some areas where you find yourself neglecting your goals when it comes to money and how can you change those this week?

IT IS WHAT IT IS...
Each decade of our lives is unique, but our 20s and early 30s is especially unique as we navigate big life decisions and continue to develop who we will become. With those opportunities can also be disappointments as our pictures and dreams of what our lives would become meet reality. So sometimes all we can do is follow in Abraham's footsteps and recognize that it is what it is, but possibly it's not what it seems.
