Studies show that money is behind ninety percent of the crimes committed in the United States. Perhaps that is why the first law of detective work is to “follow the money.” For good or for evil, money is one of the strongest motivators known to man. Jesus certainly believed this to be the case. Perhaps that is why He talked more about money than about heaven and hell combined. Join us for part six of Tipping Point, where Jesus points to the dangers of greed and the power of generosity.
Luke 20:45 – 21:4
Your __________ will follow your __________.
Practice prioritized, percentage-based, progressive generosity.
Use this outline for personal reflection, as a couples or family devotion, or with a small group.

Discuss your group’s plan to host a Jesus in the Passover meal during Lent (Feb. 22 – April 8). A training session will be offered on Wednesday night, February 22, from 6 – 7:30 p.m. in the MFC for those who volunteer to host and/or lead the event for your group.
Have you ever been disappointed because you failed to get something you wanted, only to discover later that you were glad things didn’t go your way?
People are often afraid to express or share their disappointment with God. This can result in disappointment becoming discouragement and even a loss of faith. Are you wrestling with disappointment with God? Talk about it, invite accountability, and take time to pray together.
Follow the money in this week’s scripture readings and invite the Holy Spirit to speak to you about all the ways your heart is following your money.
