Money Preaches

I had an encouraging conversation today with one of the pastors in our class, Anderson Jere.  I have been going through the gospels with the class, but took a bit of a long diversion to talk about money and how to preach on it biblically. I love Randy Alcorn’s book “Money, Possessions and Eternity.” That helped get the juices flowing. Over the course of 2 weeks, with lots of discussion and asking a lot of cultural questions, I gave them an eight week preaching foundational series outline on money.   So, I  was talking to Pastor Jere and I asked if he preached yesterday. He said no, he hadn’t, because he decided to use the teaching times (the Sunday School) that meets right before it to teach through the eight lessons I had given them.  Talk about instant turnaround!     Pray for our pastors. Another pastor shared as well that they are going to be preaching through the series as well.  Thanks for your prayers!
