  • God asks us to ask Him for daily provision
  • By nature God is our provider - Jehovah Jireh
  • Our anxiety undervalues God's providence and sovereignty.
  • We have a responsibility to be good stewards of all that God gives us
  • The Bible encourages us to be generous with what we have
  • God challeges us to remember the poor

Application Questions:

  • To what extent does your attitude towards money reflect your view of God as sustainer and provider?
  • If you are worried or anxious about your finances, who will you ask for help and / or prayer?
  • Have you become too self-reliant and self-dependent? Consider the way you pray as an indicator of the answer to this question!
  • If "the earth is the Lord's and everything in it", how should that shape what we do with our money, possessions, time and skills?
