Right On The Money: Me, My Stuff and God

Few things get more of our attention - or get our attention more - than money. Every day it is earned, spent, borrowed, saved, wasted, given, hoarded, worried over or wished for. You probably know that the Bible has a lot to say about money. About 15% of the words in the Bible are devoted to it. Given that God owns everything (Psalm 24:1 - 2), you have to wonder why he spends so much time talking about it. Maybe that's because he knows us so well. Jesus said, "Where your treasure is, there your heart is also." In other words, we put our hearts into the things we treasure. And if money - and all it can buy - has our hearts, we're in trouble.

Through the Eye of a Needle
Jesus once said that it’s harder for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God than it is for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. Forget all the clever explanations you may have heard that attempt to drop the degree of difficulty in that saying. Jesus meant a real camel and real needle. Funny thing is, a few verses later Jesus encounters a rich guy who doesn’t just enter the Kingdom – he sticks the landing!
What Dreams May Come
There's an old story about the world's first economist. It has lots of twists and turns and a suprise ending. And believe it or not, it's in the Bible! Join us for the next installment of Right on the Money.
Which Rich?
We continue our series on money by quoting words from the great philosopher/theologian, Don Henley: "You don't see no hearses with luggage racks."
Treasure Chest
Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasure on earth.” Does that mean God wants you to liquidate your retirement? Cash out your savings? Is Dave Ramsey going to hell because he told you to “store up” an emergency fund? Of course not. Jesus isn’t preaching against “treasuring” things. But he is confronting us about which things we treasure.
The Eyes Have It
Given that God owns everything (Psalm 24:1-2), you have to wonder why he spends so much time talking about money. Maybe that's because he knows us so well. Jesus said, "Where your treasure is, there your heart is also." In other words, we put our hearts into the things we treasure. And if money - and all it can buy - has our hearts, we're in trouble.

Why Our Members Chose Twickenham

First visit several years ago was confusing. First visit this summer, I was impressed with the service and the friendliness of the people. I was impressed with the focus on community. The openness, the understanding that the church is part of the world and local community.

I have always felt loved here. No one has ever judged me or made me feel less during any of my trials.

I consider the hearts of the people at Twickenham to be one of the greatest strengths. I have seen people quietly serve in so many ways and walk out life together. I also believe that the resources of the congregation can be a huge strength. Together, there is such a huge opportunity for ministry.
