Biblically Based Principles

Financial planning and giving are concepts embraced in The Bible. God gave us the command centuries ago, “to know well the condition of our resources.” This command is still applicable today. Not only does God call us to keep account of our wealth, but through the example of David and others, we are called upon to give to God’s work. David in First Chronicles 29:2 relates that, “so far as I was able, I have provided for the house of God.” David’s example offers us a unique challenge to give according to our ability.

Would you prayerfully consider giving to the Elim Park Foundation as a part of your stewardship? Working together we can be like the “man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation upon the rock and when the flood rose, the torrent burst against the house but could not shake it because it had been well built”.

 
 God Calls Us to Perform Four Things
  1. Plan our finances · Luke 14:28 “For which of you, desiring to build a tower does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it”
  2. Pay Attention to the condition of our accumulated resources · Proverbs 27: 23-24 “Know well the condition of your flocks, for riches do not last forever”
  3. Establish and maintain a savings program · Genesis 41:35 “And let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming and lay up grain and let them keep it.”
  4. Give freely as God prospers · I Chronicles 29:2 “So far as I was able, I have provided for the House of God”
