Tomorrow Matters

Making Change

Think back to Craig’s message. What sticks out?

Key Scriptures

The wise have wealth and luxury, but fools spend whatever they get.
Proverbs 21:20 NLT

Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler; yet is stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest.
Proverbs 6:6-8 NIV

Key Points

  1. Don’t invest in things you don’t understand.

    “By wisdom a house is built, and through understanding it is established; through knowledge its rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”
    Proverbs 24:3-4 NIV

  2. Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

    But divide your investments among many places, for you do not know what risks might lie ahead. Ecclesiastes 11:2 NLT

  3. Don’t try to get rich quick.

    But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction.
    1 Timothy 6:9 NLT

Discussion Questions

Start talking. Find a conversation starter for your group.

  • What do you just hate to wait for?
  • What are some things you wish you were saving for?

Start thinking. Ask questions to get your group thinking.

  • If you lost your income this week, how long do you think you could make it on what you have?
  • Why do you think it’s so hard to save and invest?

Start sharing. Choose questions that create openness.

  • Do you have any ideas or tips that have made saving and investing more doable for you?
  • Does anyone have an investment success or horror story? What did you learn?
  • What kind of non-financial investments are you seeing dividends from?
  • What will your life look like in 30 years if you start saving and investing more now? What if you don’t?
  • What are the strongest barriers keeping you from either saving or investing more? What can you do right away to make some progress?

Start praying. Be bold, and pray with power.

  • God, You’ve been so generous with us. Will You give us the discipline and wisdom to become caretakers of Your resources so that they can be used to accomplish Your work in our world? Amen.
