  • about money and finances,
  • 00:00:03.090 --> 00:00:04.210
  • but that's exactly what we're gonna do today.
  • 00:00:04.210 --> 00:00:08.050
  • So many of us struggle to reach our financial goals.
  • 00:00:08.050 --> 00:00:10.290
  • But what if you could pay off all of your debt,
  • 00:00:10.290 --> 00:00:14.280
  • save for the future,
  • 00:00:14.280 --> 00:00:16.180
  • and turn your money into a tool that helps you bring
  • 00:00:16.180 --> 00:00:21.020
  • joy, freedom, and blessings to other people
  • 00:00:21.020 --> 00:00:24.290
  • that are around you?
  • 00:00:24.290 --> 00:00:26.160
  • I'm Pastor Robert Morris, and over the last 30 years
  • 00:00:26.160 --> 00:00:30.000
  • I've seen that God has a perfect plan
  • 00:00:30.000 --> 00:00:32.220
  • to overcome all financial stress.
  • 00:00:32.220 --> 00:00:36.160
  • I believe that generosity is the key
  • 00:00:36.160 --> 00:00:39.030
  • to living a blessed life.
  • 00:00:39.030 --> 00:00:40.190
  • But before we can be generous,
  • 00:00:40.190 --> 00:00:43.010
  • we have to learn to be wise and faithful stewards
  • 00:00:43.010 --> 00:00:46.120
  • of the resources that God entrusts to us.
  • 00:00:46.120 --> 00:00:49.000
  • And the Bible is full of practical lessons
  • 00:00:49.000 --> 00:00:52.200
  • that show us how to do just that.
  • 00:00:52.200 --> 00:00:55.030
  • I wanna equip you to bless others,
  • 00:00:55.030 --> 00:00:57.190
  • and to experience the fullness of God's blessings
  • 00:00:57.190 --> 00:01:01.130
  • in your own life.
  • 00:01:01.130 --> 00:01:02.210
  • Wherever you are today, you can start living
  • 00:01:02.210 --> 00:01:06.020
  • Beyond Blessed.
  • 00:01:06.020 --> 00:01:08.240
  • (upbeat music)
  • 00:01:08.240 --> 00:01:11.120
  • (crowd applauds)
  • 00:01:18.220 --> 00:01:19.250
  • Thank you.
  • 00:01:19.250 --> 00:01:21.100
  • Thank all you guys for joining us in the studio,
  • 00:01:21.100 --> 00:01:23.280
  • and thank you for joining us at home.
  • 00:01:23.280 --> 00:01:25.250
  • Welcome to Beyond Blessed,
  • 00:01:25.250 --> 00:01:27.210
  • we're talking about that God desires to bless us
  • 00:01:27.210 --> 00:01:31.180
  • even beyond what we could think or imagine.
  • 00:01:31.180 --> 00:01:35.060
  • But there is a purpose.
  • 00:01:35.060 --> 00:01:36.280
  • The purpose is He wants us and desires us to be a blessing.
  • 00:01:36.280 --> 00:01:41.280
  • I also wanna say this right here,
  • 00:01:42.260 --> 00:01:44.050
  • God blesses us also just because He loves us.
  • 00:01:44.050 --> 00:01:47.060
  • Just because He loves us, He really does.
  • 00:01:47.060 --> 00:01:49.080
  • He loves you, think about this.
  • 00:01:49.080 --> 00:01:51.150
  • Here's what Jesus said, "If you know how to
  • 00:01:51.150 --> 00:01:53.200
  • "give good gifts to your children, how much more
  • 00:01:53.200 --> 00:01:56.290
  • "does the Father know how to give good gifts
  • 00:01:56.290 --> 00:01:58.230
  • "to His children?"
  • 00:01:58.230 --> 00:02:00.080
  • And so God does like to bless us because He loves us,
  • 00:02:00.080 --> 00:02:03.100
  • but He also blesses us according to Abraham
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:06.280
  • the Abrahamic covenant,
  • 00:02:06.280 --> 00:02:08.140
  • so that we can be a blessing.
  • 00:02:08.140 --> 00:02:10.290
  • So what we're doing is we're talking about today
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:13.110
  • the 10 Financial Commandments.
  • 00:02:13.110 --> 00:02:15.200
  • Now let me just say this,
  • 00:02:15.200 --> 00:02:17.060
  • because there are 10 of 'em I put this in two shows.
  • 00:02:17.060 --> 00:02:20.090
  • And so I've already covered the first five,
  • 00:02:20.090 --> 00:02:22.210
  • so today I'm gonna cover the next five, or the last five.
  • 00:02:22.210 --> 00:02:27.090
  • And so you just wanna catch that other show, okay?
  • 00:02:27.090 --> 00:02:29.270
  • But let's also remind you we're gonna start at number six
  • 00:02:29.270 --> 00:02:34.090
  • and what we're doing is we're actually lining
  • 00:02:34.090 --> 00:02:36.190
  • these commandments up with the 10 Commandments,
  • 00:02:36.190 --> 00:02:40.180
  • the original 10 Commandments we're lining up
  • 00:02:40.180 --> 00:02:43.000
  • with the 10 Financial Commandments, okay?
  • 00:02:43.000 --> 00:02:45.150
  • So here's number six, 'cause we've already
  • 00:02:45.150 --> 00:02:47.290
  • done the first five in another show,
  • 00:02:47.290 --> 00:02:49.210
  • here's the sixth financial commandment,
  • 00:02:49.210 --> 00:02:52.190
  • live on a budget.
  • 00:02:52.190 --> 00:02:54.200
  • Live on a budget.
  • 00:02:56.120 --> 00:02:58.130
  • Now this might shock you the one I'm lining up with
  • 00:02:58.130 --> 00:03:01.030
  • I'm lining up with the sixth commandment,
  • 00:03:01.030 --> 00:03:03.170
  • and it's Exodus 20 verse 13, "You shall not murder."
  • 00:03:03.170 --> 00:03:08.010
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:03:08.010 --> 00:03:09.200
  • Here's the reason I'm lining that up with
  • 00:03:09.200 --> 00:03:11.200
  • live on a budget.
  • 00:03:11.200 --> 00:03:12.270
  • Because if you're not living on a budget,
  • 00:03:12.270 --> 00:03:15.110
  • you're killing yourself.
  • 00:03:15.110 --> 00:03:17.090
  • That's what you're doing, or you're wanting
  • 00:03:17.090 --> 00:03:19.190
  • to kill yourself, one or the other.
  • 00:03:19.190 --> 00:03:22.140
  • You're thinking about murder somehow,
  • 00:03:22.140 --> 00:03:25.080
  • because you're not living on a budget.
  • 00:03:25.080 --> 00:03:27.060
  • A budget is a plan, it's a plan.
  • 00:03:27.060 --> 00:03:30.190
  • It's a goal.
  • 00:03:30.190 --> 00:03:32.150
  • If you don't have a goal in mind,
  • 00:03:34.000 --> 00:03:38.210
  • you'll never reach it.
  • 00:03:38.210 --> 00:03:39.240
  • It's just that simple, or let me say it like this
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:45.020
  • if your goal is nothing, you probably will reach it.
  • 00:03:45.020 --> 00:03:48.190
  • So you have you have a goal, you have to have a plan.
  • 00:03:48.190 --> 00:03:50.280
  • I remember when I was in sixth or seventh grade
  • 00:03:50.280 --> 00:03:53.270
  • I think seventh grade,
  • 00:03:53.270 --> 00:03:55.080
  • I went out for the basketball team.
  • 00:03:55.080 --> 00:03:57.110
  • And I just knew that I was the best basketball player
  • 00:03:57.110 --> 00:04:01.250
  • out there, there was just no doubt in my mind about that.
  • 00:04:01.250 --> 00:04:05.180
  • And so we're running around practicing,
  • 00:04:05.180 --> 00:04:09.120
  • and I had already heard we were gone do some layups.
  • 00:04:09.120 --> 00:04:12.220
  • That's where you dribble the ball up to the basket,
  • 00:04:12.220 --> 00:04:14.230
  • and then you just try to throw it up there
  • 00:04:14.230 --> 00:04:17.140
  • and it's called a layup.
  • 00:04:17.140 --> 00:04:19.030
  • And so when we got lined up to do it,
  • 00:04:19.030 --> 00:04:21.260
  • I got first in line.
  • 00:04:21.260 --> 00:04:24.000
  • And the reason I got first in line was I thought
  • 00:04:24.000 --> 00:04:27.040
  • what's going to happen when I do this
  • 00:04:27.040 --> 00:04:29.200
  • is the coach is going to say "Stop, I want everyone
  • 00:04:29.200 --> 00:04:34.180
  • "to look at what this young man just did.
  • 00:04:35.230 --> 00:04:38.020
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:04:38.020 --> 00:04:39.190
  • "This is the perfect example of what
  • 00:04:39.190 --> 00:04:43.050
  • "a layup should look like."
  • 00:04:43.050 --> 00:04:44.200
  • I've never even seen one,
  • 00:04:47.060 --> 00:04:48.140
  • this is the next Michael Jordan I'm sure now, so.
  • 00:04:48.140 --> 00:04:50.120
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:04:50.120 --> 00:04:51.260
  • So I took off, and before I even got to the goal
  • 00:04:51.260 --> 00:04:56.020
  • the coach said "Stop, stop right there."
  • 00:04:57.080 --> 00:05:01.000
  • He said "I want everyone to look at what he's doing."
  • 00:05:01.000 --> 00:05:05.050
  • And I thought I haven't even shot yet
  • 00:05:05.050 --> 00:05:07.260
  • and I'm so good, you know?
  • 00:05:07.260 --> 00:05:09.250
  • He said "Where is he looking?"
  • 00:05:09.250 --> 00:05:12.110
  • And everyone said "He's looking at the ball."
  • 00:05:14.210 --> 00:05:17.170
  • And he said "That's right."
  • 00:05:17.170 --> 00:05:19.080
  • He said "But that's the goal."
  • 00:05:19.080 --> 00:05:21.120
  • And he said "When you play basketball,
  • 00:05:23.000 --> 00:05:25.150
  • "you never look at the ball.
  • 00:05:25.150 --> 00:05:27.150
  • "You always look at the goal."
  • 00:05:27.150 --> 00:05:29.130
  • And then he said to me "Go back to the end of the line
  • 00:05:30.260 --> 00:05:33.140
  • "and you try it next time."
  • 00:05:33.140 --> 00:05:34.280
  • It was a very encouraging moment.
  • 00:05:36.210 --> 00:05:38.240
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:05:38.240 --> 00:05:40.210
  • Took years of therapy to get over.
  • 00:05:40.210 --> 00:05:43.190
  • But the point is, most people with their finances
  • 00:05:45.010 --> 00:05:49.170
  • are just doing this.
  • 00:05:49.170 --> 00:05:51.240
  • Never even thinking about a goal down the road,
  • 00:05:51.240 --> 00:05:55.110
  • you see what I'm saying?
  • 00:05:55.110 --> 00:05:56.140
  • And so you have to have a goal.
  • 00:05:56.140 --> 00:05:58.080
  • When you're sick, you go to the doctor right?
  • 00:05:58.080 --> 00:06:01.140
  • Why not go to a financial doctor?
  • 00:06:01.140 --> 00:06:03.150
  • There are all these resources out there
  • 00:06:03.150 --> 00:06:05.150
  • and people never even ask for help,
  • 00:06:05.150 --> 00:06:08.080
  • and there are lots of good resources out there.
  • 00:06:08.080 --> 00:06:10.140
  • So let's talk again about this plan,
  • 00:06:10.140 --> 00:06:13.060
  • I said live on a budget.
  • 00:06:13.060 --> 00:06:15.110
  • A budget seems to be a bad word to most people.
  • 00:06:15.110 --> 00:06:18.110
  • They don't like that word, it is not a bad word.
  • 00:06:19.230 --> 00:06:22.110
  • And one of the reasons is because they think
  • 00:06:22.110 --> 00:06:24.180
  • "I don't even know how to do a budget."
  • 00:06:24.180 --> 00:06:26.200
  • That's why you go to someone who does know how,
  • 00:06:26.200 --> 00:06:28.200
  • you go to a coach.
  • 00:06:28.200 --> 00:06:29.250
  • But here's the reason we don't do it.
  • 00:06:29.250 --> 00:06:32.020
  • Remember the coach told the whole class
  • 00:06:32.020 --> 00:06:35.030
  • what I was doing wrong.
  • 00:06:35.030 --> 00:06:37.080
  • I think some people are afraid to go to a small group
  • 00:06:37.080 --> 00:06:41.270
  • where they talk about finances,
  • 00:06:41.270 --> 00:06:43.200
  • because I think they're afraid that the leader of the group
  • 00:06:43.200 --> 00:06:47.030
  • is gonna say okay everybody get your check books out
  • 00:06:47.030 --> 00:06:50.060
  • and pass them around.
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.160
  • And then they're gonna look at yours and they're gonna say
  • 00:06:54.290 --> 00:06:56.250
  • Oh my.
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:57.200
  • I want everybody to look at Joe's checkbook,
  • 00:06:58.240 --> 00:07:01.020
  • this is the worst checkbook I've ever seen.
  • 00:07:02.120 --> 00:07:04.240
  • That's not what people do.
  • 00:07:04.240 --> 00:07:06.050
  • That's not what financial coaches do.
  • 00:07:06.050 --> 00:07:08.080
  • So you need to ask for help.
  • 00:07:08.080 --> 00:07:09.260
  • Now let me give you a little tidbit about a budget.
  • 00:07:09.260 --> 00:07:14.260
  • A budget allows you to make non-emotional decisions
  • 00:07:16.080 --> 00:07:20.050
  • about your finances.
  • 00:07:20.270 --> 00:07:22.190
  • You can't imagine how much trouble we get into
  • 00:07:22.190 --> 00:07:26.290
  • because we make an emotional decision.
  • 00:07:26.290 --> 00:07:29.150
  • And with finances it's simply numbers, that's all it is
  • 00:07:29.150 --> 00:07:34.130
  • it's just numbers, do the numbers add up?
  • 00:07:35.180 --> 00:07:36.250
  • I've actually had people ask me before
  • 00:07:36.250 --> 00:07:38.250
  • do you think we should buy this house?
  • 00:07:41.060 --> 00:07:43.150
  • I said there's no way I can tell you that
  • 00:07:43.150 --> 00:07:45.090
  • without looking at your budget.
  • 00:07:45.090 --> 00:07:47.120
  • Because it's just a numbers decision, that's all it is.
  • 00:07:47.120 --> 00:07:50.030
  • That's what a budget does, it helps you do that.
  • 00:07:50.030 --> 00:07:52.130
  • So let me tell you about this
  • 00:07:52.130 --> 00:07:54.170
  • when I implemented this at our home years and years ago,
  • 00:07:54.170 --> 00:07:57.120
  • I came up with this little saying and I started saying,
  • 00:07:57.120 --> 00:08:02.050
  • I called him Mr. Budget, the budget.
  • 00:08:03.230 --> 00:08:06.180
  • And so when Debbie would ask me for something,
  • 00:08:06.180 --> 00:08:10.090
  • I would say well sugar I would love to buy that for you,
  • 00:08:10.090 --> 00:08:14.210
  • but let's see what Mr. Budget says.
  • 00:08:16.160 --> 00:08:18.240
  • Oh Mr. Budget say no, I'm so sorry.
  • 00:08:20.170 --> 00:08:25.170
  • Mr. Budget's mean isn't he? He's mean, yeah he's mean.
  • 00:08:27.000 --> 00:08:30.000
  • And then, come give daddy a hug.
  • 00:08:30.000 --> 00:08:32.160
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:08:32.160 --> 00:08:34.140
  • That worked fine, until I wanted some new golf clubs.
  • 00:08:34.140 --> 00:08:37.090
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:08:37.090 --> 00:08:38.270
  • And then she said to me "Oh Mr. Budget say no."
  • 00:08:38.270 --> 00:08:42.160
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:08:42.160 --> 00:08:44.130
  • All right so that's number six, here's number seven.
  • 00:08:44.130 --> 00:08:47.050
  • Live below your means.
  • 00:08:47.050 --> 00:08:50.000
  • Live below your means.
  • 00:08:50.000 --> 00:08:51.240
  • This goes along with the seventh commandment,
  • 00:08:51.240 --> 00:08:54.080
  • Exodus 20 verse 14, listen,
  • 00:08:54.080 --> 00:08:56.100
  • "You shall not commit adultery."
  • 00:08:56.100 --> 00:08:58.080
  • Now listen, a person who commits adultery
  • 00:08:59.210 --> 00:09:03.250
  • is living beyond the means that God has
  • 00:09:03.250 --> 00:09:07.110
  • provided for him or her.
  • 00:09:07.110 --> 00:09:08.190
  • And there are two reasons why we live beyond our means.
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:14.060
  • One I'm gonna talk about will apply even with adultery,
  • 00:09:14.060 --> 00:09:16.180
  • but they both apply to math and the finances.
  • 00:09:16.180 --> 00:09:20.200
  • But here's a reason, we're not content with what we have.
  • 00:09:20.200 --> 00:09:24.180
  • That's why a man commits adultery,
  • 00:09:25.290 --> 00:09:27.230
  • he's not content with what he has.
  • 00:09:27.230 --> 00:09:30.010
  • That's why Christians don't live within their means.
  • 00:09:30.010 --> 00:09:33.170
  • Now please hear me, this is very strong.
  • 00:09:33.170 --> 00:09:36.010
  • But when you do not live within your means,
  • 00:09:36.010 --> 00:09:38.230
  • you are actually shaking your fists in the face of God.
  • 00:09:38.230 --> 00:09:43.230
  • And you are saying to God,
  • 00:09:44.190 --> 00:09:45.280
  • I am not content with you, and I'm not content
  • 00:09:45.280 --> 00:09:50.280
  • with what you've provided for me.
  • 00:09:51.260 --> 00:09:53.220
  • I'm not content with your provision,
  • 00:09:53.220 --> 00:09:55.170
  • so I'm gonna find another way to go beyond your provision.
  • 00:09:55.170 --> 00:09:59.180
  • Live within your means, here's one thing Paul said.
  • 00:10:01.000 --> 00:10:03.050
  • Philippians 4:11, "I have learned in whatever
  • 00:10:03.050 --> 00:10:07.120
  • "state I am to be content."
  • 00:10:07.120 --> 00:10:10.100
  • Now he's talking about, he said sometimes
  • 00:10:11.170 --> 00:10:13.290
  • I've been abounding, I've had more than enough,
  • 00:10:13.290 --> 00:10:17.110
  • sometimes I've been abased,
  • 00:10:17.110 --> 00:10:18.240
  • which means I didn't have enough.
  • 00:10:18.240 --> 00:10:20.290
  • But I love this because he said "I've learned."
  • 00:10:20.290 --> 00:10:24.150
  • That means you can actually learn to be content,
  • 00:10:25.260 --> 00:10:28.190
  • and this is the Apostle that wrote a third
  • 00:10:28.190 --> 00:10:30.210
  • of the New Testament, and he needed to learn this principle.
  • 00:10:30.210 --> 00:10:33.200
  • "I have learned in whatever state I'm in to be content",
  • 00:10:33.200 --> 00:10:37.110
  • you can learn to be content.
  • 00:10:37.110 --> 00:10:39.290
  • So two reasons people don't live within their means,
  • 00:10:39.290 --> 00:10:42.240
  • the first one's they're not content.
  • 00:10:42.240 --> 00:10:44.280
  • Here's the second one, let me read you the verse first.
  • 00:10:44.280 --> 00:10:48.250
  • Luke 14:28, "For which of you intending
  • 00:10:48.250 --> 00:10:52.030
  • "to build a tower, does not sit down first
  • 00:10:52.030 --> 00:10:55.120
  • "and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it."
  • 00:10:55.120 --> 00:11:00.120
  • K here's the second one, count.
  • 00:11:00.120 --> 00:11:03.000
  • People don't count.
  • 00:11:04.260 --> 00:11:06.200
  • So they don't live within their means.
  • 00:11:06.200 --> 00:11:09.120
  • Now I'm gonna use a word that to
  • 00:11:09.120 --> 00:11:12.290
  • some of you is a bad word.
  • 00:11:12.290 --> 00:11:16.290
  • It's actually not a bad word, but to some of you
  • 00:11:16.290 --> 00:11:20.090
  • it's a bad word.
  • 00:11:20.090 --> 00:11:21.090
  • Some of you, it will bring up bad memories.
  • 00:11:22.150 --> 00:11:25.230
  • It's actually a good word.
  • 00:11:25.230 --> 00:11:27.070
  • Am I building up enough suspense?
  • 00:11:28.060 --> 00:11:30.070
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:11:30.070 --> 00:11:31.220
  • But some of you are going to hate, you're going to have
  • 00:11:31.220 --> 00:11:34.030
  • chills go up your spine when I use this word.
  • 00:11:34.030 --> 00:11:38.110
  • All right, everybody ready?
  • 00:11:38.110 --> 00:11:39.270
  • Math.
  • 00:11:42.110 --> 00:11:44.110
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:11:44.110 --> 00:11:47.180
  • Anyone have chills?
  • 00:11:47.180 --> 00:11:48.210
  • And did you tell your teacher "I'm never gonna need this
  • 00:11:50.090 --> 00:11:53.080
  • "when I grow up."
  • 00:11:53.080 --> 00:11:54.100
  • You do though, don't you?
  • 00:11:55.180 --> 00:11:57.040
  • Yeah, you do! You need math!
  • 00:11:57.040 --> 00:11:59.280
  • But some people are good at math, some are not good at math.
  • 00:11:59.280 --> 00:12:03.090
  • But that's why we have coaches.
  • 00:12:03.090 --> 00:12:05.020
  • That's why we have people that can help us,
  • 00:12:05.020 --> 00:12:06.160
  • people that can give us instruction all right?
  • 00:12:06.160 --> 00:12:08.230
  • But we have found when we help people with their finances,
  • 00:12:08.230 --> 00:12:12.180
  • so many times, they're not bad people.
  • 00:12:12.180 --> 00:12:16.150
  • They just can't count! They just can't count!
  • 00:12:16.150 --> 00:12:20.020
  • I actually remember saying to this couple
  • 00:12:20.020 --> 00:12:22.140
  • you're not rebellious, you just can't count!
  • 00:12:22.140 --> 00:12:24.230
  • I said to 'em what is your monthly income?
  • 00:12:26.100 --> 00:12:30.180
  • What's your total monthly income?
  • 00:12:30.180 --> 00:12:33.150
  • They said 4.000 dollars a month.
  • 00:12:33.150 --> 00:12:35.180
  • I said okay, so in my mind I'm taking out the tithe
  • 00:12:35.180 --> 00:12:39.050
  • taking out the taxes, I can pretty much figure out
  • 00:12:39.050 --> 00:12:41.110
  • what that's gonna be.
  • 00:12:41.110 --> 00:12:42.250
  • Taking out savings, taking out things like this.
  • 00:12:42.250 --> 00:12:45.050
  • But I said okay, so that's how much you have coming in?
  • 00:12:45.050 --> 00:12:47.250
  • So I said you don't have to tell me how much
  • 00:12:47.250 --> 00:12:50.070
  • your house payment is, or your car payment
  • 00:12:50.070 --> 00:12:52.110
  • or any of that, or if you have two car payments,
  • 00:12:52.110 --> 00:12:55.070
  • I just need numbers.
  • 00:12:55.070 --> 00:12:56.110
  • You got $4.000 a month coming in,
  • 00:12:56.110 --> 00:12:59.080
  • tell me, give me some numbers,
  • 00:12:59.080 --> 00:13:01.250
  • that you know you have bills that are gonna
  • 00:13:01.250 --> 00:13:03.250
  • come every month.
  • 00:13:03.250 --> 00:13:05.050
  • So they said well 1.200 dollars a month,
  • 00:13:05.050 --> 00:13:09.090
  • 400 dollars a month, 600 dollars a month,
  • 00:13:09.090 --> 00:13:13.260
  • 400, 400, 300, 300,
  • 00:13:13.260 --> 00:13:17.050
  • 200, 200, 400, 400,
  • 00:13:17.050 --> 00:13:19.040
  • 300, 200, 400, 400, and 400.
  • 00:13:19.040 --> 00:13:22.020
  • (crowd laughs)
  • 00:13:23.040 --> 00:13:25.240
  • I said do you realize that you passed $4.000 dollars
  • 00:13:25.240 --> 00:13:29.110
  • a long time ago?
  • 00:13:29.110 --> 00:13:30.170
  • But they didn't.
  • 00:13:32.030 --> 00:13:32.270
  • Again, no budget.
  • 00:13:34.120 --> 00:13:36.130
  • No way to know if you have this much coming in,
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:40.140
  • no way.
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:41.290
  • And one thing that you could easily start a budget is this,
  • 00:13:41.290 --> 00:13:46.220
  • and when we talk about living below our means too.
  • 00:13:48.170 --> 00:13:51.090
  • 10 percent tithe, and 10 percent savings.
  • 00:13:51.090 --> 00:13:54.150
  • That's just a simple way to start a budget.
  • 00:13:54.150 --> 00:13:57.060
  • You never ever budget to spend everything you make.
  • 00:13:57.060 --> 00:14:02.080
  • Because you gotta have a contingency fund.
  • 00:14:03.130 --> 00:14:04.260
  • You've gotta be able to do this.
  • 00:14:04.260 --> 00:14:06.030
  • So we need to live below our means,
  • 00:14:06.030 --> 00:14:08.250
  • we need to be able to count and do our math,
  • 00:14:08.250 --> 00:14:11.170
  • we need to be able to have a budget.
  • 00:14:11.170 --> 00:14:13.260
  • Here's number eight, don't buy now and pay later.
  • 00:14:13.260 --> 00:14:17.290
  • The world tells us this, don't buy now and pay later.
  • 00:14:20.230 --> 00:14:24.160
  • This goes along with Exodus 20:15,
  • 00:14:24.160 --> 00:14:27.210
  • "You shall not steal."
  • 00:14:27.210 --> 00:14:29.050
  • And you might think well who am I stealing from
  • 00:14:31.140 --> 00:14:33.090
  • if I pay it off? You're stealing from yourself.
  • 00:14:33.090 --> 00:14:35.250
  • Because you don't have the funds to do what
  • 00:14:38.150 --> 00:14:41.100
  • you would like to do anymore,
  • 00:14:41.100 --> 00:14:43.040
  • your funds are already committed.
  • 00:14:43.040 --> 00:14:45.040
  • Sometimes there are people that I know who have
  • 00:14:45.040 --> 00:14:47.100
  • 80 percent of their funds already committed.
  • 00:14:47.100 --> 00:14:49.190
  • They're just committed.
  • 00:14:50.210 --> 00:14:52.030
  • Committed to their house payment,
  • 00:14:52.030 --> 00:14:53.090
  • committed to the car payment,
  • 00:14:53.090 --> 00:14:55.000
  • it's committed to boat payment.
  • 00:14:55.000 --> 00:14:56.210
  • It's committed to this, committed to this,
  • 00:14:56.210 --> 00:14:58.060
  • they have no free money at all, nothing free.
  • 00:14:58.060 --> 00:15:01.090
  • "You shall not steal."
  • 00:15:01.090 --> 00:15:03.050
  • This is stealing.
  • 00:15:03.050 --> 00:15:04.130
  • Now let me tell you why behind every commandment
  • 00:15:04.130 --> 00:15:08.110
  • is a principle,
  • 00:15:08.110 --> 00:15:09.270
  • and there's a principle about debt in the Bible okay?
  • 00:15:09.270 --> 00:15:13.170
  • So please hear me with this all right,
  • 00:15:13.170 --> 00:15:15.120
  • this is very important.
  • 00:15:15.120 --> 00:15:16.220
  • God wired you to have hope.
  • 00:15:17.250 --> 00:15:21.220
  • He wired you to have hope.
  • 00:15:23.050 --> 00:15:24.250
  • Romans 8:24 says
  • 00:15:25.250 --> 00:15:27.090
  • "For we were saved in hope.
  • 00:15:27.090 --> 00:15:30.100
  • "But hope that is seen is not hope."
  • 00:15:30.100 --> 00:15:34.230
  • Now listen hope that is seen, or realized, is not hope.
  • 00:15:34.230 --> 00:15:39.110
  • For why does one steal hope for what he sees?
  • 00:15:39.110 --> 00:15:44.110
  • Or what he already has,
  • 00:15:45.030 --> 00:15:46.180
  • why would you still hope for it if you already have it?
  • 00:15:46.180 --> 00:15:48.160
  • So in other words, if you're hoping to be able to
  • 00:15:48.160 --> 00:15:53.090
  • get some outdoor furniture,
  • 00:15:53.090 --> 00:15:55.180
  • and you just go put it on the credit card,
  • 00:15:56.230 --> 00:15:59.210
  • you don't hope for it anymore.
  • 00:15:59.210 --> 00:16:01.050
  • Why would you hope for something you can see?
  • 00:16:01.050 --> 00:16:03.170
  • You can see it, it's in your backyard.
  • 00:16:03.170 --> 00:16:05.010
  • But every time you look in your backyard and it's not there,
  • 00:16:05.010 --> 00:16:07.030
  • you're hoping for it.
  • 00:16:07.030 --> 00:16:08.190
  • And you're planning for it, and you're preparing for it.
  • 00:16:08.190 --> 00:16:11.010
  • And you're saving for it.
  • 00:16:11.010 --> 00:16:13.200
  • And what's happening is hope is building up in your life,
  • 00:16:13.200 --> 00:16:17.080
  • and this is something God planned.
  • 00:16:17.080 --> 00:16:18.250
  • It's called delayed gratification.
  • 00:16:18.250 --> 00:16:21.120
  • And God wired emotions for delayed gratification.
  • 00:16:22.240 --> 00:16:27.110
  • So that when you get it after six months of saving,
  • 00:16:27.110 --> 00:16:31.040
  • every time you pass by now you look out there,
  • 00:16:31.040 --> 00:16:35.030
  • and you think "Thank you Lord! That looks so nice,
  • 00:16:35.030 --> 00:16:38.230
  • "that makes our backyard look so nice, and it's so nice
  • 00:16:38.230 --> 00:16:41.090
  • "to sit out there and watch the sunset."
  • 00:16:41.090 --> 00:16:43.150
  • But if you go down and buy it and you didn't have the money,
  • 00:16:43.150 --> 00:16:46.260
  • and now you got payments,
  • 00:16:46.260 --> 00:16:48.020
  • and it's another payment on top of a payment,
  • 00:16:48.020 --> 00:16:50.050
  • now every time you walk by it, you have stress.
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:52.250
  • Are y'all following me?
  • 00:16:55.150 --> 00:16:57.020
  • These commandments, these financial commandments,
  • 00:16:57.020 --> 00:17:00.110
  • these things I'm talking about
  • 00:17:00.110 --> 00:17:02.050
  • relate to more than just budgeting your money.
  • 00:17:02.050 --> 00:17:05.240
  • It relates to your emotional health.
  • 00:17:05.240 --> 00:17:08.150
  • And God wired you to have that delayed gratification.
  • 00:17:08.150 --> 00:17:11.220
  • By the way one of the signs of clinical depression
  • 00:17:11.220 --> 00:17:16.220
  • By the way one of the signs of clinical depression
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:18.280
  • is a lack of hope.
  • 00:17:18.280 --> 00:17:20.190
  • Would you also like to know two other statistics?
  • 00:17:22.230 --> 00:17:27.090
  • America is the most in debt culture in the world,
  • 00:17:27.090 --> 00:17:32.060
  • America is the most in debt culture in the world,
  • 00:17:32.060 --> 00:17:33.230
  • and the most depressed culture of the world.
  • 00:17:33.230 --> 00:17:38.180
  • More diagnosed depression, and more debt.
  • 00:17:38.180 --> 00:17:43.100
  • More diagnosed depression, and more debt.
  • 00:17:43.100 --> 00:17:45.270
  • So please hear me, when God tells us things
  • 00:17:45.270 --> 00:17:49.060
  • it's not for His good, it's for our good.
  • 00:17:49.060 --> 00:17:52.110
  • Just a few weeks ago I did Dave Ramsey's show,
  • 00:17:54.200 --> 00:17:57.020
  • and Dave and I are good friends and we love each other.
  • 00:17:57.020 --> 00:17:59.290
  • And so we were talking about Beyond Blessed
  • 00:17:59.290 --> 00:18:02.240
  • and things like this,
  • 00:18:02.240 --> 00:18:04.190
  • and we were talking about delayed gratification.
  • 00:18:04.190 --> 00:18:06.230
  • And there's something that happened
  • 00:18:06.230 --> 00:18:09.100
  • and he told me the start of it, how it started.
  • 00:18:09.100 --> 00:18:11.280
  • This guy called in and when he answered the phone,
  • 00:18:11.280 --> 00:18:16.080
  • this guy started shouting "I'm debt free! I'm debt free!"
  • 00:18:16.080 --> 00:18:21.080
  • this guy started shouting "I'm debt free! I'm debt free!"
  • 00:18:22.200 --> 00:18:23.280
  • And Dave was like man that's great,
  • 00:18:23.280 --> 00:18:25.120
  • and he just kept shouting "I'm debt free, I'm debt free!"
  • 00:18:25.120 --> 00:18:29.260
  • Now I don't know if you ever listened to Dave Ramsey,
  • 00:18:29.260 --> 00:18:31.230
  • but that's become something now that when people call
  • 00:18:31.230 --> 00:18:34.280
  • and when they get debt free,
  • 00:18:34.280 --> 00:18:36.240
  • it's the debt free shout they call it.
  • 00:18:36.240 --> 00:18:38.210
  • Here's what it is, it's delayed gratification.
  • 00:18:40.020 --> 00:18:43.160
  • It's joy.
  • 00:18:44.140 --> 00:18:46.060
  • God wired you to have joy, but buy now pay later
  • 00:18:46.060 --> 00:18:50.110
  • takes it all away.
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:52.000
  • You will never have that joy.
  • 00:18:52.000 --> 00:18:53.270
  • Here's number nine, be a good witness.
  • 00:18:53.270 --> 00:18:56.130
  • We were talking about with your finances,
  • 00:18:57.240 --> 00:18:59.080
  • be a good witness.
  • 00:18:59.080 --> 00:19:00.150
  • This goes with Exodus 20:16,
  • 00:19:00.150 --> 00:19:02.190
  • "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."
  • 00:19:02.190 --> 00:19:05.240
  • "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."
  • 00:19:05.240 --> 00:19:08.120
  • Now in the commandment we say you shall not lie
  • 00:19:08.120 --> 00:19:11.270
  • and that's true, totally true.
  • 00:19:11.270 --> 00:19:13.110
  • But if you're bearing a false witness to your neighbor,
  • 00:19:15.160 --> 00:19:19.040
  • could you be doing that financially?
  • 00:19:20.260 --> 00:19:24.060
  • In other words, you're sitting there talking to
  • 00:19:25.120 --> 00:19:27.230
  • your neighbor about the Lord
  • 00:19:27.230 --> 00:19:29.150
  • and he's looking over your shoulder at a new car,
  • 00:19:30.270 --> 00:19:35.050
  • but a yard that looks horrible with unpainted shutters
  • 00:19:36.160 --> 00:19:41.130
  • and it's the worst house on the block.
  • 00:19:41.130 --> 00:19:43.100
  • I wonder if the way we handle our finances
  • 00:19:45.250 --> 00:19:50.040
  • is a bad witness about the Lord.
  • 00:19:50.040 --> 00:19:52.080
  • I think it is.
  • 00:19:54.030 --> 00:19:55.170
  • I think what we ought to be doing
  • 00:19:55.170 --> 00:19:56.260
  • is helping people understand,
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:58.290
  • when you get your life lined up with the Lord
  • 00:19:58.290 --> 00:20:00.270
  • He can help your finances as well.
  • 00:20:00.270 --> 00:20:03.280
  • So that's the ninth one, be a good steward.
  • 00:20:03.280 --> 00:20:08.040
  • And here's the tenth one, be content.
  • 00:20:08.040 --> 00:20:10.140
  • Be content.
  • 00:20:12.020 --> 00:20:13.000
  • We talked a little bit about contentment,
  • 00:20:14.050 --> 00:20:15.210
  • but I need to go into it a little bit more.
  • 00:20:15.210 --> 00:20:18.020
  • Exodus 20:17 the 10th commandment,
  • 00:20:18.020 --> 00:20:20.290
  • "You shall not covet your neighbor's house,"
  • 00:20:20.290 --> 00:20:23.240
  • and it goes on to say or anything that is your neighbor's.
  • 00:20:23.240 --> 00:20:26.200
  • Why am I saying be content?
  • 00:20:27.290 --> 00:20:30.030
  • Because if you're coveting what someone else has,
  • 00:20:30.030 --> 00:20:33.000
  • you're not content with what you have.
  • 00:20:33.000 --> 00:20:35.110
  • As a matter of fact, it actually
  • 00:20:35.110 --> 00:20:37.100
  • makes you more discontented.
  • 00:20:37.100 --> 00:20:41.080
  • You become more discontented with your car
  • 00:20:42.170 --> 00:20:46.110
  • that blows a puff of smoke every time you start it up.
  • 00:20:46.110 --> 00:20:50.130
  • When your neighbor starts up his nice new one.
  • 00:20:50.130 --> 00:20:53.200
  • You become more discontent because you're
  • 00:20:53.200 --> 00:20:56.000
  • looking at his car.
  • 00:20:56.000 --> 00:20:57.080
  • But let's go on, let's think about some other things.
  • 00:20:58.200 --> 00:21:01.140
  • When you covet what someone else has,
  • 00:21:02.190 --> 00:21:05.040
  • that person becomes God to you.
  • 00:21:06.050 --> 00:21:08.260
  • And that person's material possessions become idols.
  • 00:21:10.230 --> 00:21:15.210
  • And that person's material possessions become idols.
  • 00:21:15.210 --> 00:21:16.270
  • And here's the reason I say that person becomes God.
  • 00:21:19.220 --> 00:21:22.250
  • Because what he buys, now you have to buy.
  • 00:21:22.250 --> 00:21:25.170
  • What he has, you have to do.
  • 00:21:27.150 --> 00:21:29.070
  • He becomes your God.
  • 00:21:30.180 --> 00:21:31.190
  • And what he has becomes an idol to you,
  • 00:21:32.240 --> 00:21:36.080
  • because you're coveting it.
  • 00:21:36.080 --> 00:21:38.170
  • By the way I say an idol, let me read you the scripture.
  • 00:21:38.170 --> 00:21:42.090
  • Colossians 3:5,
  • 00:21:42.090 --> 00:21:43.270
  • "Therefore put to death your members
  • 00:21:43.270 --> 00:21:45.140
  • "which are on the earth, fornication, uncleanness,
  • 00:21:45.140 --> 00:21:48.150
  • "passion, evil desire," now listen closely,
  • 00:21:48.150 --> 00:21:51.200
  • "and covetousness, which is idolatry.
  • 00:21:51.200 --> 00:21:56.180
  • "Covetousness, which is idolatry."
  • 00:21:56.180 --> 00:21:59.160
  • That's Colossians.
  • 00:21:59.160 --> 00:22:01.040
  • So when we covet, we made an idol of something.
  • 00:22:01.040 --> 00:22:05.040
  • And we've been talking about living Beyond Blessed,
  • 00:22:05.040 --> 00:22:08.190
  • God blessing us for the purpose of being a blessing.
  • 00:22:08.190 --> 00:22:12.160
  • So for years and years Debbie and I were on the cash system,
  • 00:22:12.160 --> 00:22:16.140
  • we didn't have credit cards we didn't use 'em
  • 00:22:16.140 --> 00:22:19.170
  • because we wanted to make sure we could account for
  • 00:22:19.170 --> 00:22:23.020
  • everything that we had.
  • 00:22:23.020 --> 00:22:24.170
  • We now use credit cards, but we obviously pay 'em off
  • 00:22:24.170 --> 00:22:27.140
  • at the end of every month.
  • 00:22:27.140 --> 00:22:28.200
  • We have savings in the bank
  • 00:22:28.200 --> 00:22:30.140
  • we're in a good place financially,
  • 00:22:30.140 --> 00:22:32.040
  • not because we make more, but because we manage well
  • 00:22:32.040 --> 00:22:36.030
  • what God gives us.
  • 00:22:36.030 --> 00:22:37.090
  • That's the main thing.
  • 00:22:37.090 --> 00:22:38.250
  • Because some people say well maybe you've made some more
  • 00:22:38.250 --> 00:22:42.000
  • money now because you sold some books or something.
  • 00:22:42.000 --> 00:22:44.180
  • I know people that make a lot of money
  • 00:22:44.180 --> 00:22:47.030
  • that are still messed up financially.
  • 00:22:47.030 --> 00:22:49.000
  • So it's not whether you make a little or a lot,
  • 00:22:49.000 --> 00:22:51.020
  • it's how you manage what you have.
  • 00:22:51.020 --> 00:22:52.130
  • But for years we were all cash, okay?
  • 00:22:52.130 --> 00:22:56.220
  • And so when we would go on vacation I took cash,
  • 00:22:56.220 --> 00:23:00.110
  • I took a bunch of cash.
  • 00:23:00.110 --> 00:23:02.010
  • So we went on vacation, we were gonna use the credit card
  • 00:23:02.010 --> 00:23:06.090
  • 'cause we had the money in the bank and in the budget
  • 00:23:06.090 --> 00:23:08.180
  • to cover.
  • 00:23:08.180 --> 00:23:09.240
  • But I just without even thinking,
  • 00:23:09.240 --> 00:23:11.250
  • went to the bank and got a thousand dollars in cash
  • 00:23:11.250 --> 00:23:14.170
  • which would be normally what I would take on vacation.
  • 00:23:14.170 --> 00:23:17.080
  • So I had 10- $100 dollar bills.
  • 00:23:17.080 --> 00:23:19.100
  • That morning I'm having my quiet time,
  • 00:23:19.100 --> 00:23:21.040
  • and I just was thinking about I had jeans on,
  • 00:23:21.040 --> 00:23:25.250
  • about how big my wallet was.
  • 00:23:25.250 --> 00:23:28.210
  • And it dawned on me I had this roll of money,
  • 00:23:28.210 --> 00:23:31.090
  • this thousand dollars of cash in my pocket.
  • 00:23:31.090 --> 00:23:34.240
  • And I'm talking to the Lord.
  • 00:23:34.240 --> 00:23:36.260
  • And I kinda had a little laugh with the Lord.
  • 00:23:36.260 --> 00:23:39.190
  • I said Lord here I am, thank you for bringing me
  • 00:23:39.190 --> 00:23:41.280
  • to the place that I don't have to carry this much
  • 00:23:41.280 --> 00:23:44.130
  • cash with me anymore,
  • 00:23:44.130 --> 00:23:45.260
  • 'cause I've got the money in the bank,
  • 00:23:45.260 --> 00:23:47.050
  • I've got the money in the budget.
  • 00:23:47.050 --> 00:23:48.240
  • But it is kinda funny, my old habits die hard.
  • 00:23:48.240 --> 00:23:51.200
  • I got a $1000 cash.
  • 00:23:51.200 --> 00:23:53.070
  • And the Lord and I laugh about it.
  • 00:23:53.070 --> 00:23:55.150
  • That day, Debbie and I go to lunch.
  • 00:23:55.150 --> 00:23:57.130
  • This family walks in, two parents, four kids.
  • 00:23:58.180 --> 00:24:02.030
  • A family of six.
  • 00:24:02.030 --> 00:24:04.060
  • They start looking over the menu
  • 00:24:04.060 --> 00:24:07.060
  • and they start adding up what things cost,
  • 00:24:07.060 --> 00:24:10.140
  • and they talk about sharing meals.
  • 00:24:10.140 --> 00:24:12.100
  • We were talking about being good stewards.
  • 00:24:13.150 --> 00:24:15.110
  • And I thought they're believers,
  • 00:24:15.110 --> 00:24:17.160
  • and they're trying to be good stewards.
  • 00:24:17.160 --> 00:24:19.160
  • And pretty soon when the meal came they held hands,
  • 00:24:19.160 --> 00:24:22.200
  • and they prayed.
  • 00:24:22.200 --> 00:24:23.250
  • And all of a sudden it was like I thought to myself,
  • 00:24:26.200 --> 00:24:29.200
  • I know why I have all this cash with me.
  • 00:24:30.240 --> 00:24:33.060
  • And it was like the Lord said "I do too.
  • 00:24:35.040 --> 00:24:38.050
  • "I planned it this way, actually."
  • 00:24:39.100 --> 00:24:41.080
  • And then Debbie knows that sometimes I give
  • 00:24:42.160 --> 00:24:44.130
  • $100 dollar bills away when the Lord tells me
  • 00:24:44.130 --> 00:24:47.120
  • and she said "Do you have a $100 dollar bill?"
  • 00:24:47.120 --> 00:24:50.100
  • 'Cause she looked over and saw too.
  • 00:24:50.100 --> 00:24:52.060
  • I said I got 10 of 'em.
  • 00:24:52.060 --> 00:24:53.110
  • So we went over and we told them we wanna give you this
  • 00:24:54.250 --> 00:24:58.020
  • because you're being good stewards.
  • 00:24:58.020 --> 00:25:00.190
  • And the guy told me, "This'll pay for our whole vacation."
  • 00:25:00.190 --> 00:25:04.020
  • And I remember saying to these four kids
  • 00:25:04.020 --> 00:25:06.130
  • don't ever forget the day that a stranger
  • 00:25:06.130 --> 00:25:10.260
  • paid for your meal,
  • 00:25:11.220 --> 00:25:13.010
  • because you asked God to bless your meal,
  • 00:25:14.060 --> 00:25:17.120
  • and you were being good stewards of what God's given you.
  • 00:25:17.120 --> 00:25:20.040
  • My prayer for every one of you
  • 00:25:21.050 --> 00:25:23.100
  • is that you will be a good steward of what God gives you.
  • 00:25:24.220 --> 00:25:27.280
  • So that you can give generously when God prompts you.
  • 00:25:27.280 --> 00:25:31.090
  • Let's pray.
  • 00:25:32.100 --> 00:25:33.150
  • Lord I pray for every person watching.
  • 00:25:33.150 --> 00:25:36.150
  • I pray God that you would take these principles,
  • 00:25:36.150 --> 00:25:40.090
  • and secure them in our hearts.
  • 00:25:40.090 --> 00:25:43.120
  • I pray Lord for people who are watching
  • 00:25:43.120 --> 00:25:45.120
  • who are under financial stress,
  • 00:25:45.120 --> 00:25:47.210
  • and have lived that way for years.
  • 00:25:47.210 --> 00:25:50.080
  • I pray God that the truths of these messages
  • 00:25:50.080 --> 00:25:53.190
  • will break that financial stress and bondage today,
  • 00:25:53.190 --> 00:25:58.110
  • it will be broken today.
  • 00:25:58.110 --> 00:26:00.140
  • And I pray Lord that every person watching
  • 00:26:00.140 --> 00:26:03.140
  • will be able to be a great steward of the funds you give us,
  • 00:26:03.140 --> 00:26:07.180
  • and that we will be able to be generous givers
  • 00:26:07.180 --> 00:26:11.120
  • when you prompt us, in Jesus' name, Amen.
