Why God is Interested With Your Money

1.     Because He Is The Ultimate Owner.
Haggai 2:8 - The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.
Psalms 50:12
- If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.
Psalms 89:11 - The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.

2.     Because The Money We Have Is His Blessing To Us.
Your money represents your endowment. Things that God has given you.
Money = Time
Money = Favour
Money = Skills
Money = Knowledge
Money = Talent
Money = Inheritance

We came naked and everything we now have has been added to us.
Job 1:21 - And said, Naked came I out of my mother's womb, and naked shall I return thither: the LORD gave, and the LORD hath taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD.
James 1:17 - Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

3.     Because God Want Us To Use Our Money On Things That Satisfies.
Isaiah 55:2 - Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness.

4.     Because Go Want Us To Be FAITHFUL STEWARDS And Make Profit With Our Money
Matthew 25:27 - Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury.

5.     Because God Want us to serve him with our resources
Exodus 10:26 - Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come thither.

6.     Because God Want Us To Glorify Him With Our Money
Isaiah 43:21 - This people have I formed for myself; they shall shew forth my praise.

Why God Want Us To Give Some Of Our Money.

1.     Because He Want You To Honour Him With Your Wealth So That He Can Honour You Back With His Own.
Proverbs 3:9 – 10
9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:
10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

2.     Because What We Give God Becomes Our Seed For Future Harvest.
Our Future Is In Our Seeds
Genesis 26:12 - Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.
Proverbs 11:25 - The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.  

3.     Because What We Give God Opens The Windows Of Heaven And Rebukes Devourers.
Malachi 3:10 – 12
10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
11 And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of hosts.
12 And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of hosts.

4.     Because He Want To See Our Attitude While Giving
Mark 12:41 - And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury
