Sermon Notes...I've Had Enough (Wealth)

Genesis 41 (New Translation) Read today's text here

Introduction: Money matters! Ecclesiastes 10:19 says "A party gives laughter, wine gives happiness, and money gives everything!" Money matters when you have it and it really matters when you don't.

Transition: If you keep doing the same thing, you'll keep getting the same results. So today, we've come making the declaration that I've Had Enough! Enough of struggling, enough of trying to make ends meet, enough of pay check to pay check living! We want to shift from not enough to more than enough!

Recap of Wednesday's Prayer Call (from this passage)...3 Do's
-Work: my acknowledgement that no one owes me anything
-Save: wisdom for beyond today
-Budget: if your outgo exceeds you income, it will soon be your downfall

Exposition: 4 Don'ts

1) Don't squander wise advice...verses 33-40
Information without application is of no use to your situation.

2) Don't abuse prosperity...verses 47-49
Walkerism: If money always burns a hole in your pocket, there'll never be any money in your pocket!

3) Don't underestimate famine...verses 53-55
Hard times come to every one, no matter your status. Brace yourself for the worst of the worst.

4) Don't break the piggy bank too soon...verses 55-57
A new outfit is not a necessity or an emergency!!! Real problems are coming and will be savings account worthy.
