Crown Financial Bible Study – Week Two – God’s Part/Our Part

What I learned from the homework – God owns everything!

I have completed Destination 1 on the Crown Money Map!  Hallelujah!  Then the evidence of that disappeared when an unforeseen expense popped up.  Then, a week later, God provided the funds to complete that destination again.  Thank You, Jesus!

Changes I have made/need to make – I need to get to work on paying off credit card debt and increasing my savings.  I have begun to think of everything I have as belonging to God.  I still need to remind myself of this at times.

Understanding that God owns everything has given me a desire to get rid of some old habits:  like tolerating my kids’ lack of church attendance.  In the coming weeks, my husband and I plan to sit them down and explain that our home belongs to God, and as long as they live under His roof, they WILL attend church!  I’ll try to remember to let you know how that goes.

My youngest daughter has already agreed to attend a Bible study at our church that is starting in a few weeks.

Memorizing Scripture – 1 Chronicles 29:11-12 is awe-inspiring!  Now that we’ve memorized it, we’ve been challenged with meditating on it in the morning and the evening.  This is a wonderful exercise to keep the perspective that everything I have belongs to God.
