  • AND HE WANTS TO TEACH US
  • 00:00:40.040 --> 00:00:41.140
  • TO BE GENEROUS TOO.
  • 00:00:41.140 --> 00:00:42.290
  • HE SHOWS US THE WAY TO LIVE
  • 00:00:42.290 --> 00:00:44.200
  • A BLESSED LIFE,
  • 00:00:44.200 --> 00:00:46.090
  • AND I BELIEVE BY DRAWING CLOSE
  • 00:00:46.090 --> 00:00:47.090
  • TO THE LORD,
  • 00:00:47.090 --> 00:00:48.120
  • HE WILL DRAW CLOSE TO US
  • 00:00:48.120 --> 00:00:49.240
  • AS WE DO THAT, EVEN RIGHT NOW
  • 00:00:49.240 --> 00:00:51.230
  • AS WE OPEN HIS WORD.
  • 00:00:51.230 --> 00:00:53.230
  • IF YOU HAVE YOUR BIBLES
  • 00:00:55.220 --> 00:00:56.160
  • THIS MORNING, I'D LIKE FOR YOU
  • 00:00:56.160 --> 00:00:57.290
  • TO TURN TO THE BOOK
  • 00:00:57.290 --> 00:00:58.220
  • OF MATTHEW 6, MATTHEW 6.
  • 00:01:07.110 --> 00:01:10.110
  • WE'RE ENTERING
  • 00:01:10.110 --> 00:01:11.070
  • THE CHRISTMAS SEASON --
  • 00:01:11.070 --> 00:01:12.080
  • THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS SEASON,
  • 00:01:12.080 --> 00:01:13.260
  • AND PEOPLE START THINKING
  • 00:01:13.260 --> 00:01:14.160
  • ABOUT GIVING.
  • 00:01:14.160 --> 00:01:15.270
  • GIVING THANKS, GIVING GIFTS
  • 00:01:15.270 --> 00:01:18.230
  • TO PEOPLE WE LOVE,
  • 00:01:18.230 --> 00:01:20.080
  • GIVING OF OUR TIME,
  • 00:01:20.080 --> 00:01:21.290
  • GIVING OF OUR TALENTS,
  • 00:01:21.290 --> 00:01:22.280
  • OUR LOVE.
  • 00:01:22.280 --> 00:01:24.230
  • I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT
  • 00:01:24.230 --> 00:01:26.160
  • GIVING FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:01:26.160 --> 00:01:28.090
  • AND GIVING IN GENERAL.
  • 00:01:28.090 --> 00:01:30.130
  • AND USUALLY PEOPLE START
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:32.010
  • TALKING ABOUT GIVING,
  • 00:01:32.010 --> 00:01:33.250
  • IMMEDIATELY PEOPLE'S BRAINS
  • 00:01:33.250 --> 00:01:34.240
  • GO TO MONEY.
  • 00:01:34.240 --> 00:01:36.250
  • AM I WRONG?
  • 00:01:36.250 --> 00:01:38.090
  • NO, YEAH, IT'S WHAT
  • 00:01:38.090 --> 00:01:39.130
  • PEOPLE THINK OF.
  • 00:01:39.130 --> 00:01:40.210
  • WE KNOW THERE'S A STRING
  • 00:01:40.210 --> 00:01:42.000
  • THAT CONNECTS OUR HEART
  • 00:01:42.000 --> 00:01:43.100
  • TO OUR WALLET,
  • 00:01:43.100 --> 00:01:44.270
  • CAUSE ANYTIME SOMEONE THREATENS
  • 00:01:44.270 --> 00:01:47.040
  • OUR WALLET, OUR HEART GOES...
  • 00:01:47.230 --> 00:01:50.230
  • THAT'S A JOKE,
  • 00:01:50.230 --> 00:01:52.060
  • BUT LISTEN TO WHAT JESUS SAID.
  • 00:01:52.060 --> 00:01:54.030
  • MATTHEW 6:21,
  • 00:01:54.030 --> 00:01:56.100
  • "WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS,
  • 00:01:56.100 --> 00:01:59.000
  • THERE YOUR HEART WILL BE ALSO."
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.030
  • WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS,
  • 00:02:01.030 --> 00:02:03.100
  • WHATEVER YOU TREASURE,
  • 00:02:03.100 --> 00:02:05.030
  • WHATEVER YOU HIGHLY VALUE,
  • 00:02:05.030 --> 00:02:07.120
  • YOUR HEART'S GONNA FOLLOW THAT.
  • 00:02:07.120 --> 00:02:08.290
  • OKAY?
  • 00:02:08.290 --> 00:02:11.040
  • IF YOU HIGHLY VALUE SPORTS CARS,
  • 00:02:14.180 --> 00:02:17.180
  • YOUR HEART'S ALWAYS CONSUMED
  • 00:02:17.180 --> 00:02:19.040
  • WITH THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:20.010
  • THOSE THINGS.
  • 00:02:20.010 --> 00:02:21.050
  • IF YOU HIGHLY VALUE BASEBALL,
  • 00:02:21.050 --> 00:02:24.040
  • LIKE ME, OKAY,
  • 00:02:24.040 --> 00:02:26.150
  • THEN YOU'RE ALWAYS KIND OF
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:27.210
  • WATCHING AND LISTENING TO STATS
  • 00:02:27.210 --> 00:02:29.170
  • AND WATCHING STRATEGY
  • 00:02:29.170 --> 00:02:30.150
  • AND THINK -- A LOT OF PEOPLE
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:31.120
  • THINK BASEBALL IS LIKE
  • 00:02:31.120 --> 00:02:32.110
  • WATCHING PAINT DRY, I REALIZE,
  • 00:02:32.110 --> 00:02:34.130
  • BUT THERE'S A LOT OF THINKING
  • 00:02:34.130 --> 00:02:35.180
  • THAT GOES INTO BASEBALL,
  • 00:02:35.180 --> 00:02:36.290
  • AND YOU KNOW, I LOVE BASEBALL.
  • 00:02:36.290 --> 00:02:38.200
  • BUT WHATEVER YOU TREASURE,
  • 00:02:38.200 --> 00:02:40.140
  • YOUR HEART'S GONNA CHASE
  • 00:02:40.140 --> 00:02:41.220
  • AFTER THAT.
  • 00:02:41.220 --> 00:02:42.270
  • IF IT'S MONEY,
  • 00:02:42.270 --> 00:02:44.040
  • THEN YOUR HEART'S GONNA
  • 00:02:44.040 --> 00:02:44.280
  • CHASE AFTER MONEY, RIGHT?
  • 00:02:44.280 --> 00:02:46.160
  • WHAT DO YOU TREASURE?
  • 00:02:46.160 --> 00:02:48.070
  • OKAY, I TREASURE MY WIFE,
  • 00:02:48.130 --> 00:02:51.130
  • AND MY CHILDREN,
  • 00:02:51.130 --> 00:02:52.120
  • AND MY GRANDCHILDREN.
  • 00:02:52.120 --> 00:02:54.080
  • I'D DO ANYTHING FOR THEM.
  • 00:02:54.080 --> 00:02:56.220
  • I'LL LAY DOWN MY LIFE LIKE YOU
  • 00:02:56.220 --> 00:02:58.070
  • THE SAME WAY.
  • 00:02:59.050 --> 00:03:02.070
  • GIVING IS ALL ABOUT THE HEART,
  • 00:03:02.150 --> 00:03:05.150
  • THAT'S TODAY'S MESSAGE.
  • 00:03:05.150 --> 00:03:07.000
  • GIVING IS ALL ABOUT THE HEART.
  • 00:03:07.000 --> 00:03:09.290
  • GIVING IS NOT ABOUT MONEY,
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:11.260
  • AND I'M NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:03:11.260 --> 00:03:12.190
  • JUST GIVING MONEY,
  • 00:03:12.190 --> 00:03:14.070
  • I'M TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:03:14.070 --> 00:03:14.250
  • GIVING OF EVERYTHING.
  • 00:03:15.030 --> 00:03:18.030
  • WHATEVER WE GIVE,
  • 00:03:18.030 --> 00:03:19.090
  • WHETHER IT'S TIME,
  • 00:03:19.090 --> 00:03:20.100
  • OR LOVE, OR FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:03:20.100 --> 00:03:23.050
  • IT'S ALL ABOUT THE HEART, OKAY?
  • 00:03:23.050 --> 00:03:25.130
  • CAN WE THINK ABOUT THAT?
  • 00:03:25.130 --> 00:03:26.250
  • WE LOOK AT MATTHEW 7:1-2,
  • 00:03:26.250 --> 00:03:29.100
  • NOW I'M GONNA LOOK AT
  • 00:03:29.100 --> 00:03:31.200
  • A SCRIPTURE THAT PEOPLE
  • 00:03:31.200 --> 00:03:32.290
  • OFTEN USE TO DISCUSS MONEY,
  • 00:03:32.290 --> 00:03:34.160
  • BUT MONEY IS NOT REFERENCED,
  • 00:03:34.160 --> 00:03:37.080
  • AND THERE'S SOME POINTS HERE
  • 00:03:37.080 --> 00:03:38.150
  • I'M GIVING, I'M TAKING RIGHT OUT
  • 00:03:38.150 --> 00:03:40.020
  • OF THE PAGE
  • 00:03:40.020 --> 00:03:41.070
  • OF PASTOR ROBERT MORRIS
  • 00:03:41.070 --> 00:03:41.290
  • OF GATEWAY CHURCH.
  • 00:03:41.290 --> 00:03:43.270
  • I WANT TO SAY THAT
  • 00:03:43.270 --> 00:03:45.050
  • RIGHT UP FRONT,
  • 00:03:45.050 --> 00:03:45.280
  • CAUSE I'VE JUST READ HIS BOOK,
  • 00:03:45.280 --> 00:03:46.230
  • AND IT JUST SET ME FREE.
  • 00:03:46.230 --> 00:03:48.240
  • I MEAN, IT JUST BLESSED
  • 00:03:48.240 --> 00:03:49.280
  • MY BONES.
  • 00:03:49.280 --> 00:03:51.140
  • LET ME TELL YOU,
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:52.170
  • I MEAN I DON'T THINK
  • 00:03:52.170 --> 00:03:53.250
  • ANY OF YOU HAVE HEARD ME
  • 00:03:53.250 --> 00:03:54.220
  • PREACH A WHOLE MESSAGE
  • 00:03:54.220 --> 00:03:55.140
  • ON TITHING, TELL ME,
  • 00:03:55.230 --> 00:03:58.230
  • WHEN HAVE YOU HEARD IT?
  • 00:03:58.230 --> 00:03:59.290
  • YOU KNOW, AND I'M NOT GONNA
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:03.090
  • TALK ABOUT TITHING TODAY,
  • 00:04:03.090 --> 00:04:04.130
  • WE'RE GONNA TALK ABOUT GIVING,
  • 00:04:06.290 --> 00:04:09.290
  • AND MAYBE A LITTLE BIT
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:10.270
  • GIVING MONEY IS PART OF
  • 00:04:10.270 --> 00:04:11.260
  • WHAT WE GIVE.
  • 00:04:11.260 --> 00:04:12.280
  • BUT I WANT TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:04:12.280 --> 00:04:13.240
  • A GENEROUS SPIRIT,
  • 00:04:13.240 --> 00:04:15.110
  • IT'S A HEART ISSUE.
  • 00:04:15.110 --> 00:04:16.170
  • OKAY, I'M GONNA TALK ABOUT
  • 00:04:16.170 --> 00:04:17.150
  • OUR HEARTS,
  • 00:04:17.150 --> 00:04:18.130
  • AND THE LORD SET ME FREE
  • 00:04:18.130 --> 00:04:21.100
  • THAT I NEED TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:04:21.100 --> 00:04:23.180
  • TITHINGS AND OFFERINGS.
  • 00:04:23.180 --> 00:04:25.090
  • AMEN?
  • 00:04:25.090 --> 00:04:26.250
  • YOU KNOW, AND MY BIG HANG UP,
  • 00:04:26.250 --> 00:04:29.190
  • AND A LOT OF PASTORS
  • 00:04:29.190 --> 00:04:31.020
  • IT'S SO HARD BECAUSE WE WANT
  • 00:04:31.020 --> 00:04:32.160
  • PEOPLE TO KNOW THEY'RE LOVED
  • 00:04:32.160 --> 00:04:33.290
  • WHETHER THEY GIVE MONEY OR NOT.
  • 00:04:34.020 --> 00:04:37.020
  • AND WE'RE SO BURDENED
  • 00:04:37.020 --> 00:04:38.040
  • THAT PEOPLE KNOW THAT
  • 00:04:38.040 --> 00:04:39.170
  • THEY'RE LOVED,
  • 00:04:39.170 --> 00:04:41.020
  • IT'S DIFFICULT TO REMIND THEM
  • 00:04:41.020 --> 00:04:43.080
  • THEY'RE SUPPOSED TO BE
  • 00:04:43.080 --> 00:04:44.090
  • FAITHFUL STEWARDS
  • 00:04:44.090 --> 00:04:45.030
  • OF ALL GOD HAS GIVEN THEM.
  • 00:04:45.030 --> 00:04:46.070
  • OKAY, CAUSE WE'RE AFRAID
  • 00:04:46.070 --> 00:04:46.280
  • THEY WON'T THINK THEY'RE LOVED,
  • 00:04:46.280 --> 00:04:47.290
  • OR WE'RE ONLY IN THEIR LIVES
  • 00:04:47.290 --> 00:04:49.110
  • BECAUSE OF MONEY.
  • 00:04:49.110 --> 00:04:51.000
  • THAT MAKES ME NAUSEOUS,
  • 00:04:51.000 --> 00:04:52.250
  • I MEAN LITERALLY,
  • 00:04:52.250 --> 00:04:53.290
  • IT MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH
  • 00:04:53.290 --> 00:04:54.290
  • TO THINK THAT,
  • 00:04:54.290 --> 00:04:56.210
  • ESPECIALLY WHEN I SEE SO MUCH
  • 00:04:56.210 --> 00:04:57.130
  • ABUSE OF MONEY BY TV MINISTRIES.
  • 00:04:58.250 --> 00:05:01.270
  • AND YOU KNOW,
  • 00:05:01.270 --> 00:05:02.290
  • GOD BLESS THEM FOR ALL THEY DO,
  • 00:05:02.290 --> 00:05:04.070
  • THE STUFF THEY SELL, YOU KNOW.
  • 00:05:04.070 --> 00:05:05.270
  • I DON'T SELL ANYTHING,
  • 00:05:05.270 --> 00:05:06.280
  • AND I'VE NEVER MONETIZE
  • 00:05:06.280 --> 00:05:07.280
  • OUR TELEVISION MINISTRY,
  • 00:05:07.280 --> 00:05:09.020
  • I DON'T GET A PENNY, OKAY.
  • 00:05:09.020 --> 00:05:11.000
  • FOR THE RECORD.
  • 00:05:11.000 --> 00:05:12.090
  • BUT I'VE ALSO BEEN AFRAID
  • 00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:14.140
  • OF PEOPLE BEING MAD AT ME
  • 00:05:14.140 --> 00:05:16.000
  • FOR TALKING ABOUT MONEY,
  • 00:05:16.000 --> 00:05:17.240
  • AND THERE IS --
  • 00:05:17.240 --> 00:05:19.050
  • LIES THE FEAR OF MAN.
  • 00:05:19.050 --> 00:05:21.270
  • THAT'S NOT FROM THE LORD,
  • 00:05:21.270 --> 00:05:23.260
  • I CAN'T WORRY ABOUT
  • 00:05:23.260 --> 00:05:24.270
  • WHAT PEOPLE THINK,
  • 00:05:24.270 --> 00:05:25.200
  • SO MANY OTHER AREAS IN MY LIFE,
  • 00:05:25.200 --> 00:05:26.170
  • IN MY MINISTRY.
  • 00:05:26.170 --> 00:05:27.180
  • STANDING NEXT TO DONALD TRUMP
  • 00:05:27.180 --> 00:05:28.270
  • AND PRAYING FOR HIM,
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:29.270
  • I KNOW I'M GONNA DO IT
  • 00:05:29.270 --> 00:05:30.280
  • BECAUSE GOD TOLD ME TO DO IT,
  • 00:05:30.280 --> 00:05:32.010
  • EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:05:32.010 --> 00:05:32.200
  • I'M CRITICIZED HATEFULLY,
  • 00:05:32.200 --> 00:05:34.130
  • YOU KNOW, IN THAT ARENA.
  • 00:05:34.130 --> 00:05:36.230
  • I TOTALLY IGNORE THE CRITICISM,
  • 00:05:36.230 --> 00:05:39.080
  • BUT BEING A FRAIL MAN,
  • 00:05:39.080 --> 00:05:41.290
  • WITH FEET OF CLAY
  • 00:05:41.290 --> 00:05:43.130
  • LIKE ANY OF YOU,
  • 00:05:43.130 --> 00:05:44.080
  • I'M AFRAID OF THE CRITICISM
  • 00:05:44.080 --> 00:05:45.160

  • AND HE BLESSES ME AGAIN.
  • 00:06:31.060 --> 00:06:32.170

  • FROM THE UNIVERSITY
  • 00:06:34.080 --> 00:06:35.020

  • 00:06:35.020 --> 00:06:36.200
  • TO THE PRESIDENT,
  • 00:06:36.200 --> 00:06:37.170
  • I WAS VERY SET, OKAY, IN LIFE.
  • 00:06:38.010 --> 00:06:41.010
  • IN A VERY YOUNG AGE,
  • 00:06:41.010 --> 00:06:42.190
  • I WAS VERY SET, OKAY,
  • 00:06:42.190 --> 00:06:44.130
  • FINANCIALLY, MATERIALLY.
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:46.150
  • AND WE WALKED AWAY TO HEAR --
  • 00:06:46.150 --> 00:06:49.000
  • FOLLOW THE CALL OF THE LORD
  • 00:06:49.000 --> 00:06:50.090
  • TO MISSIONS.
  • 00:06:50.090 --> 00:06:52.050
  • THERE, WHEN WE HAD
  • 00:06:52.050 --> 00:06:53.150
  • OUR LITTLE CHURCH,
  • 00:06:53.150 --> 00:06:54.150
  • BUT THERE WASN'T ANY OFFERINGS
  • 00:06:54.150 --> 00:06:57.070
  • IN THERE TO PAY
  • 00:06:57.070 --> 00:06:58.020
  • MY CREDIT CARD DEBT,
  • 00:06:58.020 --> 00:06:59.000
  • LET ALONE A MORTGAGE

  • AND GROCERIES, AND LIGHT BILL.
  • 00:07:03.150 --> 00:07:05.280
  • AND IT JUST WASN'T THERE,
  • 00:07:05.280 --> 00:07:07.060
  • AND THE LORD SAID, "TRUST ME."
  • 00:07:07.060 --> 00:07:08.190
  • AND I SAID, "LORD, OKAY.
  • 00:07:09.260 --> 00:07:12.260
  • WE'LL DO IT."
  • 00:07:12.260 --> 00:07:13.270
  • AND WE DID.
  • 00:07:13.270 --> 00:07:14.260
  • AND EVERY MONTH WE SAW MIRACLES,
  • 00:07:14.260 --> 00:07:17.240
  • EVERY MONTH.
  • 00:07:17.240 --> 00:07:18.210
  • AND THOUGH I DID NOT HAVE
  • 00:07:18.210 --> 00:07:20.240
  • THE MONEY TO PAY THE BILLS,
  • 00:07:20.240 --> 00:07:22.140
  • I DIDN'T STOP GIVING TITHES
  • 00:07:22.140 --> 00:07:24.200
  • AND OFFERINGS.
  • 00:07:24.200 --> 00:07:26.290
  • AND THE NUMBER ONE REASON
  • 00:07:26.290 --> 00:07:27.230
  • I GET FROM PEOPLE NOT GIVING
  • 00:07:27.230 --> 00:07:29.050
  • IS THEY THINK THEY WON'T HAVE
  • 00:07:29.050 --> 00:07:31.090
  • ENOUGH TO PAY THEIR --
  • 00:07:31.090 --> 00:07:32.170
  • YOU MAY NOT,
  • 00:07:32.170 --> 00:07:33.110
  • YOU MAY NEED A MIRACLE.
  • 00:07:33.110 --> 00:07:35.110
  • SO, LET'S BELIEVE FOR A MIRACLE.
  • 00:07:35.240 --> 00:07:38.240
  • FOR YEARS,
  • 00:07:38.240 --> 00:07:41.030
  • THE LORD WOULDN'T LET ME
  • 00:07:41.030 --> 00:07:41.250
  • DO ANYTHING IN BUSINESS,
  • 00:07:41.250 --> 00:07:43.040
  • HE SAID, HE LITERALLY
  • 00:07:43.040 --> 00:07:45.060
  • SAID TO ME, INTO MY HEART.
  • 00:07:45.060 --> 00:07:46.170
  • HE LITERALLY SAID, "YOU NEED
  • 00:07:46.170 --> 00:07:47.240
  • TO LEARN TO WALK BY FAITH,
  • 00:07:48.080 --> 00:07:51.080
  • AND YOU HAVEN'T DONE THAT."
  • 00:07:51.080 --> 00:07:52.200
  • I SAID,
  • 00:07:52.200 --> 00:07:54.050
  • "BUT LORD, I HAVE FAITH."
  • 00:07:54.050 --> 00:07:55.090
  • YES, YOU HAVE FAITH,
  • 00:07:55.090 --> 00:07:56.020
  • BUT TO WALK BY FAITH
  • 00:07:56.020 --> 00:07:57.230
  • WHEN THERE'S NO WAY
  • 00:07:57.230 --> 00:07:58.290
  • THAT YOU CAN SEE YOU
  • 00:07:58.290 --> 00:07:59.200
  • CAN DO IT ON YOUR OWN,
  • 00:07:59.200 --> 00:08:00.150
  • BUT FOR GOD SHOWING UP IN
  • 00:08:00.150 --> 00:08:01.070
  • AND INTERVENING.
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:02.030
  • THAT'S DIFFERENT.
  • 00:08:02.030 --> 00:08:03.020
  • CAUSE I'D ALWAYS WORKED,
  • 00:08:03.020 --> 00:08:04.290
  • OKAY, AND I HONOR WORKING,
  • 00:08:05.100 --> 00:08:08.100
  • I LOVE WORKING.
  • 00:08:08.100 --> 00:08:09.160
  • OKAY?
  • 00:08:09.160 --> 00:08:10.270
  • IF YOU'RE ABLE TO WORK YOU
  • 00:08:10.270 --> 00:08:12.120
  • SHOULD WORK, IF YOU'RE ABLE.
  • 00:08:12.120 --> 00:08:14.080
  • IT'S HONORABLE, IT'S HOLY,
  • 00:08:14.080 --> 00:08:16.040
  • AND THE LORD SAYS,
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:17.050
  • "ALL THAT YOU DO,
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:17.270
  • DO UNTO THE LORD."
  • 00:08:17.270 --> 00:08:20.070
  • SO, THIS IS WHERE
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:21.040
  • I FOUND MYSELF,
  • 00:08:21.040 --> 00:08:22.200

  • SHE SAID, "IF THAT'S WHAT

  • AND THIS IS WHEN
  • 00:15:23.250 --> 00:15:24.290
  • WE DIDN'T HAVE MONEY, I MEAN,
  • 00:15:24.290 --> 00:15:26.100
  • WE WERE DESPERATELY POOR
  • 00:15:26.100 --> 00:15:27.290

  • I WAS IN SCHOOL
  • 00:15:32.290 --> 00:15:33.280
  • WITH THE LORD, ALRIGHT?
  • 00:15:33.280 --> 00:15:35.260
  • AND WE HAD TO HAVE MIRACLES
  • 00:15:35.260 --> 00:15:38.190
  • EVERY MONTH, AND HERE I AM,
  • 00:15:38.190 --> 00:15:39.220

  • 00:15:42.050 --> 00:15:43.150
  • AND FULFILL THE CALLING.
  • 00:15:43.150 --> 00:15:46.100
  • THAT AFTERNOON, WITHIN ABOUT
  • 00:15:46.100 --> 00:15:47.120
  • AN HOUR AND A HALF
  • 00:15:47.130 --> 00:15:50.130

  • THAT SAME DAY!
  • 00:15:58.120 --> 00:15:59.160

  • 00:15:59.160 --> 00:16:02.050
  • OF MY KIDS GETTING FREE TUITION
  • 00:16:02.050 --> 00:16:03.230

  • FROM HERE ON OUT."
  • 00:16:10.260 --> 00:16:11.220
  • AND I WENT, "WHAT?"
  • 00:16:11.220 --> 00:16:13.100

  • 00:16:24.010 --> 00:16:25.140
  • THE LORD TOLD ME, "SHARE AGAIN."
  • 00:16:25.140 --> 00:16:27.130
  • IT'S KINDA LIKE DROP THE NETS
  • 00:16:27.130 --> 00:16:28.070
  • ON THIS SIDE OF THE BOAT,
  • 00:16:28.070 --> 00:16:29.020
  • OR DO IT AGAIN.
  • 00:16:29.020 --> 00:16:30.070
  • "THEN HE'S GONNA ACCEPT CHRIST,
  • 00:16:30.070 --> 00:16:31.200
  • AND YOU'RE GONNA
  • 00:16:31.200 --> 00:16:32.100
  • GIVE HIM THE HOUSE."
  • 00:16:32.100 --> 00:16:33.190
  • I'M GONNA GIVE HIM THE WHAT?
  • 00:16:33.190 --> 00:16:36.140
  • YEAH.
  • 00:16:36.140 --> 00:16:37.100
  • AND I SAID OKAY, SO HE CAME,
  • 00:16:37.100 --> 00:16:39.230
  • BROUGHT HIS LITTLE PAYMENT,
  • 00:16:39.230 --> 00:16:40.230
  • AND I SAID, I CALLED HIS NAME
  • 00:16:40.230 --> 00:16:42.270
  • IN SPANISH, AND I'M SHARING
  • 00:16:42.270 --> 00:16:44.290
  • WITH HIM, AND I SAID,
  • 00:16:44.290 --> 00:16:46.190
  • "YOU KNOW, THE LORD WANTS
  • 00:16:46.190 --> 00:16:48.240
  • TO FORGIVE ALL YOUR DEBTS,
  • 00:16:48.240 --> 00:16:50.040
  • FORGIVE YOU ALL YOUR SINS,
  • 00:16:50.050 --> 00:16:53.050
  • ALL YOUR TRESPASSES,
  • 00:16:53.050 --> 00:16:54.080
  • AND IT'S FREE.
  • 00:16:54.080 --> 00:16:56.090
  • ALL YOU HAVE TO DO
  • 00:16:56.090 --> 00:16:57.090
  • IS RECEIVE IT.
  • 00:16:57.090 --> 00:16:58.110
  • WHY DON'T YOU PRAY WITH ME?"
  • 00:16:58.110 --> 00:17:00.140
  • AND HE SAID, "OKAY, PASTOR.
  • 00:17:00.140 --> 00:17:01.210
  • I'LL PRAY.
  • 00:17:01.210 --> 00:17:03.030
  • I NEED FORGIVENESS,
  • 00:17:03.030 --> 00:17:04.160
  • I NEED JESUS."
  • 00:17:04.160 --> 00:17:06.230
  • AND HE PRAYED
  • 00:17:06.230 --> 00:17:08.010
  • AND ACCEPTED CHRIST,
  • 00:17:08.010 --> 00:17:09.200
  • AND THEN I WAS ABLE TO SAY,
  • 00:17:09.200 --> 00:17:10.180
  • JUST AS THE LORD
  • 00:17:10.180 --> 00:17:11.110
  • SPOKE TO MY HEART,
  • 00:17:11.110 --> 00:17:11.290
  • JUST AS THE LORD GAVE ME
  • 00:17:11.290 --> 00:17:13.070
  • THE PROPHETIC WORD,
  • 00:17:13.070 --> 00:17:14.100
  • I WAS ABLE TO SAY TO HIM,
  • 00:17:14.100 --> 00:17:15.110
  • "NOW, JUST AS THE LORD
  • 00:17:15.110 --> 00:17:16.060
  • HAS FORGIVEN YOUR SIN DEBTS,
  • 00:17:16.220 --> 00:17:19.220
  • I HAVE FORGIVEN YOUR HOUSE DEBT.
  • 00:17:19.220 --> 00:17:22.110
  • MY ATTORNEY IS DRAWING UP
  • 00:17:22.110 --> 00:17:24.010
  • THE PAPERS RIGHT NOW,
  • 00:17:24.010 --> 00:17:25.200
  • YOU'LL HAVE THE DEED TO
  • 00:17:25.200 --> 00:17:27.020
  • THE PROPERTY WITHIN A FEW DAYS."
  • 00:17:27.020 --> 00:17:29.020
  • HE BEGAN WEEPING,
  • 00:17:29.020 --> 00:17:31.090
  • HIS WHOLE FAMILY CAME UP
  • 00:17:31.090 --> 00:17:32.170
  • TO THE CHURCH.
  • 00:17:32.170 --> 00:17:33.250
  • THEY WERE ONLY LIVING
  • 00:17:33.250 --> 00:17:34.200
  • ON ONE SIDE OF THE DUPLEX,
  • 00:17:34.200 --> 00:17:35.170
  • BUT NOW THEY GOT
  • 00:17:35.170 --> 00:17:36.230
  • THE WHOLE THING,
  • 00:17:36.230 --> 00:17:37.180
  • AND THEY WERE ABLE TO BLESS
  • 00:17:37.180 --> 00:17:38.290
  • ANOTHER FAMILY AND GET INCOME
  • 00:17:38.290 --> 00:17:40.280
  • FROM THAT, THAT'S WHAT
  • 00:17:40.280 --> 00:17:41.260
  • THE LORD SAID TO DO.
  • 00:17:41.260 --> 00:17:43.000
  • OKAY?
  • 00:17:43.000 --> 00:17:43.280
  • YOU CAN'T OUTGIVE GOD,
  • 00:17:43.280 --> 00:17:45.110
  • I'VE TRIED.
  • 00:17:45.110 --> 00:17:47.230
  • OKAY, I'M NOT TRYING
  • 00:17:47.230 --> 00:17:49.280
  • TO JUST TALK ABOUT ME,
  • 00:17:49.280 --> 00:17:50.220
  • BUT YOU'VE GOT TO HEAR EXAMPLES.
  • 00:17:50.220 --> 00:17:52.140
  • OKAY?
  • 00:17:52.140 --> 00:17:53.170
  • YOU HAVE TO HEAR
  • 00:17:53.170 --> 00:17:54.100
  • THAT THIS IS TRUE.
  • 00:17:54.100 --> 00:17:55.240
  • DON'T LOOK ME IN THE FACE
  • 00:17:55.240 --> 00:17:57.090
  • AND SAY, "I DON'T HAVE
  • 00:17:57.090 --> 00:17:58.000
  • ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY
  • 00:17:58.000 --> 00:17:58.240
  • THE LIGHT BILL."
  • 00:17:58.240 --> 00:17:59.220
  • OKAY, DON'T SAY THAT.
  • 00:17:59.280 --> 00:18:03.000
  • WHAT YOU'RE LACKING IS TRUST,
  • 00:18:03.000 --> 00:18:04.290
  • AND I LOVE YOU,
  • 00:18:04.290 --> 00:18:07.110
  • THAT'S WHY I'M SAYING THIS.
  • 00:18:07.110 --> 00:18:08.290
  • AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO GIVE
  • 00:18:08.290 --> 00:18:10.230
  • TO THIS CHURCH,
  • 00:18:10.230 --> 00:18:11.140
  • GIVE TO THE CHURCH YOU DO LIKE,
  • 00:18:11.140 --> 00:18:12.160
  • WHERE YOU LIKE 'EM OVER THERE.
  • 00:18:12.160 --> 00:18:14.000
  • OKAY, DON'T GIVE TO THIS ONE,
  • 00:18:14.000 --> 00:18:14.230
  • BUT GIVE TO GOD.
  • 00:18:14.230 --> 00:18:17.020
  • YOU KNOW, AND THAT REMINDS ME --
  • 00:18:17.020 --> 00:18:18.160
  • WELL, I DON'T KNOW
  • 00:18:19.150 --> 00:18:22.150
  • WHY I SHOULD BRING THIS UP,
  • 00:18:22.150 --> 00:18:23.250
  • BUT YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:23.250 --> 00:18:25.170
  • SOMETIMES THOUGHTS
  • 00:18:25.170 --> 00:18:26.100
  • JUST COME TO MY HEAD,
  • 00:18:26.100 --> 00:18:27.020
  • AND THEY COME OUT OF MY MOUTH.
  • 00:18:27.020 --> 00:18:28.100
  • YOU KNOW WHAT I'M TALKING
  • 00:18:28.100 --> 00:18:29.020
  • ABOUT LUPE?
  • 00:18:29.020 --> 00:18:31.190
  • LUPE HAS THAT GIFT TOO.
  • 00:18:31.190 --> 00:18:32.160
  • SHE KNOWS I LOVE HER TO DEATH.
  • 00:18:33.210 --> 00:18:36.210
  • I WAS JUST THINKING, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:18:37.000 --> 00:18:40.000
  • I'M GONNA TAKE MY PRECIOUS BRIDE
  • 00:18:40.000 --> 00:18:41.000
  • OUT TO EAT,
  • 00:18:41.000 --> 00:18:41.240
  • AND I DON'T HAVE ANY CASH
  • 00:18:41.240 --> 00:18:43.060
  • IN MY WALLET TO TAKE HER
  • 00:18:43.060 --> 00:18:44.010
  • OUT TO EAT TODAY.
  • 00:18:44.010 --> 00:18:44.270
  • I JUST, YOU KNOW, I JUST DON'T.
  • 00:18:46.030 --> 00:18:49.030
  • I'M GONNA FIGURE OUT
  • 00:18:49.030 --> 00:18:50.020
  • A WAY TO TAKE YOU OUT,
  • 00:18:50.020 --> 00:18:50.270
  • DON'T WORRY SWEETHEART.
  • 00:18:51.260 --> 00:18:54.260
  • HEY, JASON.
  • 00:18:54.260 --> 00:18:56.050
  • YOU KNOW YOU'RE ON T.V. RIGHT?
  • 00:18:56.050 --> 00:18:57.140
  • - YES, SIR.
  • 00:18:57.140 --> 00:18:59.250
  • - $100 BILL.
  • 00:18:59.250 --> 00:19:00.190
  • LOOK AT THAT.
  • 00:19:00.190 --> 00:19:03.190
  • I'M GONNA START SHARING
  • 00:19:03.190 --> 00:19:04.290
  • THOSE THOUGHTS MORE OFTEN.
  • 00:19:05.110 --> 00:19:08.110
  • YOU KNOW HOW EASY IT WAS
  • 00:19:08.110 --> 00:19:10.070
  • FOR HIM TO JUST JUMP UP
  • 00:19:10.070 --> 00:19:11.160
  • AND BRING ME THIS $100 BILL?
  • 00:19:11.160 --> 00:19:13.110
  • MAN, HE DIDN'T HESITATE.
  • 00:19:13.150 --> 00:19:16.150
  • THAT WAS PRETTY QUICK.
  • 00:19:16.150 --> 00:19:18.060
  • YOU KNOW WHY?
  • 00:19:18.060 --> 00:19:20.250
  • CAUSE I GAVE IT TO HIM
  • 00:19:20.250 --> 00:19:21.170
  • BEFORE THE SERVICE.
  • 00:19:22.010 --> 00:19:25.010
  • CAUSE IT'S MY $100 BILL.
  • 00:19:25.010 --> 00:19:27.180
  • HE HAD NO TROUBLE GIVING AWAY
  • 00:19:28.170 --> 00:19:31.170
  • WHAT WASN'T HIS.
  • 00:19:31.170 --> 00:19:33.050
  • THINK ABOUT THAT, HOW EASY.
  • 00:19:37.000 --> 00:19:40.000
  • - YOU DIDN'T TELL ME --
  • 00:19:40.000 --> 00:19:41.040
  • - [SPEAKING SPANISH] LUPE.
  • 00:19:42.010 --> 00:19:45.010
  • HERE I AM, LOOK AT LUPE.
  • 00:19:45.010 --> 00:19:47.000
  • OH MY GOSH LUPE,
  • 00:19:47.000 --> 00:19:47.240
  • BLESS YOU LUPE.
  • 00:19:47.240 --> 00:19:50.080
  • MAN YOU'RE RUINING
  • 00:19:50.280 --> 00:19:53.280
  • MY ILLUSTRATION.
  • 00:19:54.050 --> 00:19:57.050
  • NO YOU'RE NOT,
  • 00:19:57.050 --> 00:19:57.260
  • YOU'RE MAKING IT MORE PROFOUND.
  • 00:19:57.260 --> 00:19:59.000
  • SHE'S UP HERE CRYING
  • 00:19:59.000 --> 00:19:59.210
  • HEARING THE VOICE OF THE LORD.
  • 00:19:59.210 --> 00:20:01.280
  • THE POINT OF THE ILLUSTRATION,
  • 00:20:01.280 --> 00:20:04.240
  • THE LITTLE SKIT IS THIS,
  • 00:20:04.240 --> 00:20:06.040
  • IF YOU DON'T THINK IT'S YOURS,
  • 00:20:06.040 --> 00:20:07.280
  • IT'S EASY TO GIVE AWAY, RIGHT?
  • 00:20:09.290 --> 00:20:12.290
  • BUT WHEN YOU THINK
  • 00:20:12.290 --> 00:20:13.200
  • IT'S YOURS REALLY,
  • 00:20:13.200 --> 00:20:15.040
  • IT'S HARDER TO LET GO OF.
  • 00:20:15.160 --> 00:20:18.160
  • JASON KNEW THAT WASN'T HIS
  • 00:20:18.160 --> 00:20:19.110
  • $100 BILL CAUSE I PUT IT IN
  • 00:20:19.110 --> 00:20:20.140
  • HIS HAND BEFORE CHURCH
  • 00:20:20.140 --> 00:20:22.010
  • AND SAID, "WE'RE GONNA
  • 00:20:22.010 --> 00:20:22.240
  • DO THIS LITTLE SKIT."
  • 00:20:22.240 --> 00:20:24.080
  • SO, HE HAD NO -- IT WAS EASY,
  • 00:20:24.080 --> 00:20:25.080
  • NO HESITATION WHATSOEVER
  • 00:20:25.080 --> 00:20:26.290
  • BECAUSE HE KNEW IT WASN'T HIS,
  • 00:20:26.290 --> 00:20:28.190
  • IT WAS MINE.
  • 00:20:28.190 --> 00:20:29.170
  • YOU KNOW, THE TITHE IS NOT OURS,
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:31.230
  • IT'S GOD'S.
  • 00:20:31.230 --> 00:20:33.180
  • THERE'S A SCRIPTURE THAT SAYS,
  • 00:20:33.180 --> 00:20:34.180
  • AND I'LL SHARE IT NEXT WEEK,
  • 00:20:34.180 --> 00:20:35.220
  • THAT YOU KNOW, THE FELLOW SAYS
  • 00:20:35.220 --> 00:20:37.170
  • "I'M NOT GONNA KEEP
  • 00:20:37.170 --> 00:20:38.140
  • WHAT IS HOLY IN MY HOUSE.
  • 00:20:38.140 --> 00:20:40.160
  • I'M GONNA TAKE IT TO
  • 00:20:40.160 --> 00:20:41.100
  • THE HOUSE OF THE LORD."
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.060
  • SO WHEN OUR TITHES, THAT MEANS,
  • 00:20:42.060 --> 00:20:44.090
  • LITERALLY MEANS 10%, OKAY,
  • 00:20:44.170 --> 00:20:47.170
  • WHEN OUR FIRST 10%
  • 00:20:47.170 --> 00:20:49.110
  • THAT COMES INTO OUR HOUSE,
  • 00:20:49.110 --> 00:20:50.220
  • STAYS IN OUR HOUSE
  • 00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:52.140
  • AND DOESN'T GO TO
  • 00:20:52.140 --> 00:20:53.050
  • THE LORD'S HOUSE,
  • 00:20:53.050 --> 00:20:53.240
  • THERE'S A CURSE ON IT.
  • 00:20:53.240 --> 00:20:55.270
  • I'M GONNA SHOW YOU THAT
  • 00:20:55.270 --> 00:20:56.180
  • IN THE BIBLE NEXT WEEK,
  • 00:20:56.180 --> 00:20:57.170
  • STAY TUNED.
  • 00:20:57.170 --> 00:20:58.220
  • YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT, OKAY?
  • 00:20:58.220 --> 00:21:00.130
  • BUT TODAY I'M JUST TALKING
  • 00:21:00.130 --> 00:21:01.280
  • ABOUT GIVING, OF EVERY KIND.
  • 00:21:02.000 --> 00:21:05.000
  • IT'S FOUNDATIONAL STUFF,
  • 00:21:05.000 --> 00:21:07.170
  • ALRIGHT.
  • 00:21:07.170 --> 00:21:08.060
  • SO, THE PRINCIPLE
  • 00:21:08.060 --> 00:21:09.110
  • OF REAPING AND SOWING IS THERE,
  • 00:21:09.110 --> 00:21:10.170
  • MAKE NO MISTAKE, OKAY?
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:11.230
  • I'M GONNA RUN OUT OF TIME HERE.
  • 00:21:12.000 --> 00:21:15.000
  • I'M JUST GONNA KEEP GOING,
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:15.260
  • HOW BOUT THAT?
  • 00:21:15.260 --> 00:21:16.170
  • IS THAT OKAY?
  • 00:21:16.170 --> 00:21:18.040
  • WE'RE GONNA KEEP GOING,
  • 00:21:18.040 --> 00:21:18.210
  • SO LOOK AT GALATIANS 6:7-10,
  • 00:21:22.050 --> 00:21:25.050
  • WHATEVER YOU DO,
  • 00:21:25.050 --> 00:21:25.260
  • DO NOT READ VERSE 6, OKAY?
  • 00:21:25.260 --> 00:21:27.260
  • GALATIANS 6:7-10,
  • 00:21:28.250 --> 00:21:31.250
  • DO NOT READ VERSE 6.
  • 00:21:31.250 --> 00:21:33.060
  • JASON, DO NOT PUT VERSE 6
  • 00:21:33.060 --> 00:21:36.040
  • ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:21:36.040 --> 00:21:37.220
  • I'M TELLING YOU, DON'T.
  • 00:21:40.050 --> 00:21:43.050
  • EVERY ONE OF YOU JUST READ IT,
  • 00:21:43.050 --> 00:21:44.010
  • DIDN'T YOU?
  • 00:21:44.010 --> 00:21:44.260
  • GALATIANS 6:7-10.
  • 00:21:44.260 --> 00:21:47.100
  • "DO NOT BE DECEIVED
  • 00:21:47.100 --> 00:21:49.290
  • GOD IS NOT MOCKED
  • 00:21:49.290 --> 00:21:51.010
  • FOR WHATEVER A MAN SOWS
  • 00:21:51.010 --> 00:21:52.110
  • THIS HE WILL ALSO REAP."
  • 00:21:52.110 --> 00:21:54.090
  • THAT'S WHAT JESUS
  • 00:21:54.090 --> 00:21:55.020
  • WAS TALKING ABOUT, WHAT
  • 00:21:55.020 --> 00:21:55.210
  • HE WAS TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:21:55.210 --> 00:21:56.170
  • CONDEMNATION AND JUDGEMENT,
