Building wealth Gods way

Biblical Stewardship

Luke 14:28-30 NLT
[28] "But ​don't begin until you count the cost​. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if there is enough money to finish it? [29] Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at you. [30] They would say, 'There's the person who started that building and couldn't afford to finish it!'
路加福音 14:28​-​30 CCB
28「​哪有人建樓房不事先坐下來計算成本​,看能否建成? 29 否則,打好了地基卻不能完工, 徒惹別人嘲笑, 30『這個人開了工,卻不能完工!』

Have a plan - Live on a budget
好好計劃 - 有預算地生活

Pursue freedom - Get out of debt
追求自由 - 擺脫債務

Proverbs 22:7 NIV
[7] The rich rule over the poor, and ​the borrower is slave to the lender​. 箴言 22:7 CCB
7 富人管轄窮人, ​欠債的是債主的僕人​。

Proverbs 6:5 NLT
[5] ​Save yourself like a gazelle​ escaping from a hunter, like a bird fleeing from a net.
箴言 6:5 CCB
要​救自己脫離困境, 像羚羊​掙脫獵人的手, 飛鳥逃脫捕鳥人的手。

Build for the future - save and invest
為未來去籌備 - 儲蓄及投資

Proverbs 21:20 NLT
[20] The wise have wealth and luxury, but ​fools spend whatever they get​.
箴言 21:20 CCB
20 智者家中積存寶物和油, ​愚人將所有的揮霍一空​。

Be content - Let Jesus settle your heart
心要知足 - 讓耶穌去安頓你的心

1 Timothy 6:6-9 NLT
[6] Yet true ​godliness with contentment is itself great wealth​. [7] After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can't take anything with us when we leave it. [8] So ​if we have enough​ food and clothing, l​ et us be content​. [9] 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.
提摩太前書 6:6​-​9 CCB
6 其實​敬虔和知足才是真正的財富​,7 因為我們空手來到世上,也要空手離開。 8 ​只要有​吃有 穿,​就該知足​。 9 那些渴望發財的人卻陷入誘惑、網羅和許多愚蠢有害的慾望中,以致落入 敗壞和滅亡中。
