  • A TEACHING MINISTRY THAT FOCUSES
  • 00:00:50.010 --> 00:00:51.240
  • ON GOD'S UNCONDITIONAL
  • 00:00:51.240 --> 00:00:53.080
  • > GOD LOVES YOU.
  • 00:00:55.110 --> 00:00:57.000
  • GOD WANTS TO BLESS YOU,
  • 00:00:57.000 --> 00:00:58.140
  • AND PROSPER YOU,
  • 00:00:58.140 --> 00:00:59.170
  • BUT YOU HAVE TO RESPOND
  • 00:00:59.170 --> 00:01:02.000
  • - I WAS ABLE TO TAKE THAT,
  • 00:01:03.060 --> 00:01:05.100
  • BELIEVING IT, AND MOVE AHEAD
  • 00:01:05.100 --> 00:01:07.190
  • AND OPERATE IN GIVING
  • 00:01:07.190 --> 00:01:09.180
  • BELIEVING FOR A HARVEST,
  • 00:01:09.180 --> 00:01:10.280
  • AND GETTING HARVEST EVERY TIME.
  • 00:01:10.280 --> 00:01:12.240
  • ONCE I DID THAT,
  • 00:01:12.240 --> 00:01:13.130
  • WELCOME TO OUR FRIDAY'S
  • 00:01:17.180 --> 00:01:18.170
  • BROADCAST OF THE GOSPEL TRUTH.
  • 00:01:18.170 --> 00:01:21.050
  • TODAY IS THE END OF MY SECOND
  • 00:01:21.050 --> 00:01:22.270
  • WEEK OF TEACHING
  • 00:01:22.270 --> 00:01:24.030
  • ON FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP.
  • 00:01:24.030 --> 00:01:26.160
  • I HAVE A BOOK ON THIS,
  • 00:01:26.160 --> 00:01:27.260
  • AND I TELL YOU,
  • 00:01:27.260 --> 00:01:28.080
  • THIS IS POWERFUL.
  • 00:01:28.080 --> 00:01:29.030
  • THIS IS JUST A DIFFERENT
  • 00:01:29.030 --> 00:01:30.130
  • APPROACH TO TALKING ABOUT MONEY
  • 00:01:30.130 --> 00:01:33.040
  • THAN WHAT MOST PEOPLE DO.
  • 00:01:33.040 --> 00:01:34.170
  • IT'S NOT TO SAY THAT THIS
  • 00:01:34.170 --> 00:01:35.210
  • IS THE RIGHT WAY
  • 00:01:35.210 --> 00:01:36.240
  • AND OTHERS ARE WRONG,
  • 00:01:36.240 --> 00:01:37.260
  • IT'S JUST A DIFFERENT MINDSET.
  • 00:01:37.260 --> 00:01:40.190
  • I REALLY BELIEVE
  • 00:01:40.190 --> 00:01:41.180
  • THAT INSTEAD OF JUST
  • 00:01:41.180 --> 00:01:42.190
  • FOCUSING ON MONEY
  • 00:01:42.190 --> 00:01:43.290
  • AND HOW MUCH MONEY
  • 00:01:43.290 --> 00:01:44.280
  • YOU CAN GET
  • 00:01:44.280 --> 00:01:45.210
  • AND HOW TO PROSPER,
  • 00:01:45.210 --> 00:01:47.140
  • THAT THE KEY TO EVERYTHING
  • 00:01:47.140 --> 00:01:48.230
  • IS BECOMING A STEWARD,
  • 00:01:48.230 --> 00:01:51.020
  • RECOGNIZING THAT YOU
  • 00:01:51.020 --> 00:01:52.210
  • ARE MANAGING THE RESOURCES
  • 00:01:52.210 --> 00:01:54.160
  • OF ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 00:01:54.160 --> 00:01:56.100
  • WHAT YOU HAVE IS NOT YOUR OWN,
  • 00:01:56.100 --> 00:01:57.260
  • YOU AREN'T THE OWNER;
  • 00:01:57.260 --> 00:01:59.000
  • YOU ARE A STEWARD OF GOD.
  • 00:01:59.000 --> 00:02:01.080
  • HE'S THE ONE THAT GAVE YOU
  • 00:02:01.080 --> 00:02:02.070
  • YOUR LIFE,
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:03.070
  • GAVE YOU YOUR TALENTS,
  • 00:02:03.070 --> 00:02:04.110
  • GAVE YOU YOUR HEALTH,
  • 00:02:04.110 --> 00:02:05.270
  • GAVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITIES.
  • 00:02:05.270 --> 00:02:07.270
  • YOU HAVE TO DO THINGS,
  • 00:02:07.270 --> 00:02:09.040
  • YES, BUT IF YOU RECOGNIZE GOD
  • 00:02:09.040 --> 00:02:11.150
  • AS YOUR SOURCE,
  • 00:02:11.150 --> 00:02:12.120
  • THAT JUST MAKES EVERYTHING,
  • 00:02:12.120 --> 00:02:15.070
  • SO MUCH DIFFERENT.
  • 00:02:15.070 --> 00:02:16.110
  • A SCRIPTURE THAT I'VE USED OFTEN
  • 00:02:16.110 --> 00:02:18.000
  • IS PROVERBS 10:22,
  • 00:02:18.000 --> 00:02:19.130
  • WHERE IT SAYS,
  • 00:02:19.130 --> 00:02:19.270
  • THE BLESSING OF THE LORD
  • 00:02:19.270 --> 00:02:21.100
  • MAKETH RICH,
  • 00:02:21.100 --> 00:02:22.160
  • AND HE ADDS NO SORROW WITH IT.
  • 00:02:22.160 --> 00:02:24.190
  • YOU CAN PROSPER
  • 00:02:24.190 --> 00:02:25.280
  • THROUGH OTHER MEANS,
  • 00:02:25.280 --> 00:02:27.040
  • THROUGH LYING,
  • 00:02:27.040 --> 00:02:28.020
  • THROUGH STEALING,
  • 00:02:28.020 --> 00:02:29.100
  • THROUGH DIFFERENT THINGS,
  • 00:02:29.100 --> 00:02:30.150
  • THROUGH YOUR OWN EFFORT,
  • 00:02:30.150 --> 00:02:32.010
  • THROUGH BEING STRESSED OUT,
  • 00:02:32.010 --> 00:02:33.200
  • THROUGH BEING A WORKAHOLIC,
  • 00:02:33.200 --> 00:02:35.110
  • AND ON AND ON.
  • 00:02:35.110 --> 00:02:36.040
  • THERE'S MANY WAYS THAT YOU CAN
  • 00:02:36.040 --> 00:02:37.140
  • GET MONEY,
  • 00:02:37.140 --> 00:02:38.010
  • BUT IT COMES WITH TRAVAIL
  • 00:02:38.010 --> 00:02:40.090
  • AND SORROW.
  • 00:02:40.090 --> 00:02:41.020
  • WHEN YOU TAP
  • 00:02:41.020 --> 00:02:41.210
  • INTO GOD'S SYSTEM...
  • 00:02:41.210 --> 00:02:42.220
  • WHEN YOU BECOME A STEWARD
  • 00:02:42.220 --> 00:02:45.110
  • AND YOU JUST START DOING
  • 00:02:45.110 --> 00:02:46.090
  • WHAT GOD TELLS YOU TO DO
  • 00:02:46.090 --> 00:02:47.220
  • AND YOU TRUST GOD,
  • 00:02:47.220 --> 00:02:49.190
  • IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE.
  • 00:02:49.190 --> 00:02:51.170
  • MAN, THAT'S IMPORTANT,
  • 00:02:51.170 --> 00:02:52.130
  • AND THEN WE TALKED ABOUT
  • 00:02:52.130 --> 00:02:53.080
  • THAT TRUSTING HIM
  • 00:02:53.080 --> 00:02:54.210
  • IN THIS AREA OF FINANCES
  • 00:02:54.210 --> 00:02:56.100
  • IS THE LEAST USE OF YOUR FAITH.
  • 00:02:56.100 --> 00:02:58.110
  • MANY PEOPLE JUST THINK,
  • 00:02:58.110 --> 00:02:59.100
  • WELL, I DON'T WANT TO HEAR
  • 00:02:59.100 --> 00:03:00.100
  • ABOUT MONEY;
  • 00:03:00.100 --> 00:03:01.170
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT HEALING,
  • 00:03:01.170 --> 00:03:02.270
  • I NEED TO BE HEALED.
  • 00:03:02.270 --> 00:03:03.280
  • LET'S TALK ABOUT
  • 00:03:03.280 --> 00:03:05.080
  • GETTING DELIVERED
  • 00:03:05.080 --> 00:03:06.010
  • FROM DEPRESSION AND HAVING JOY
  • 00:03:06.010 --> 00:03:07.280
  • AND PEACE
  • 00:03:07.280 --> 00:03:08.180
  • AND HOW DO I GET MY EMOTIONS
  • 00:03:08.180 --> 00:03:10.010
  • HEALED?
  • 00:03:10.010 --> 00:03:10.260
  • YOU CAN'T BYPASS THIS.
  • 00:03:10.260 --> 00:03:12.120
  • IT'S LIKE THE BOTTOM RUNG
  • 00:03:12.120 --> 00:03:13.180
  • ON A LADDER.
  • 00:03:13.180 --> 00:03:14.120
  • IF YOU WANT TO CLIMB THE LADDER,
  • 00:03:14.120 --> 00:03:15.200
  • YOU'VE GOT TO START
  • 00:03:15.200 --> 00:03:16.130
  • AT THE BOTTOM
  • 00:03:16.130 --> 00:03:17.040
  • AND TAKE EACH ONE
  • 00:03:17.040 --> 00:03:17.250
  • OF THESE STEPS.
  • 00:03:17.250 --> 00:03:19.040
  • THIS IS AN INDISPENSABLE
  • 00:03:19.040 --> 00:03:21.230
  • PART OF GROWTH
  • 00:03:21.230 --> 00:03:23.200
  • IN THE CHRISTIAN LIFE
  • 00:03:23.200 --> 00:03:24.230
  • IS BECOMING RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:03:24.230 --> 00:03:26.220
  • AND TRUSTING GOD
  • 00:03:26.220 --> 00:03:27.260
  • IN THIS AREA OF FINANCES.
  • 00:03:27.260 --> 00:03:29.250
  • SO, WE'VE ALREADY
  • 00:03:29.250 --> 00:03:30.110
  • TALKED ABOUT THAT,
  • 00:03:30.110 --> 00:03:31.040
  • AND THEN YESTERDAY,
  • 00:03:31.040 --> 00:03:31.290
  • I STARTED TALKING FROM LUKE,
  • 00:03:31.290 --> 00:03:33.130
  • CHAPTER 16,
  • 00:03:33.130 --> 00:03:35.080
  • ABOUT THIS PARABLE
  • 00:03:35.080 --> 00:03:36.070
  • THAT JESUS GAVE OF A MAN
  • 00:03:36.070 --> 00:03:38.100
  • WHO WAS A STEWARD
  • 00:03:38.100 --> 00:03:40.030
  • FOR A RICH MAN.
  • 00:03:40.030 --> 00:03:41.010
  • A STEWARD MEANS THAT YOU MANAGE
  • 00:03:41.010 --> 00:03:43.000
  • THE AFFAIRS OF ANOTHER PERSON.
  • 00:03:43.000 --> 00:03:44.100
  • IT'S NOT YOUR MONEY.
  • 00:03:44.100 --> 00:03:46.010
  • YOU CAN'T USE IT
  • 00:03:46.010 --> 00:03:46.270
  • FOR SELFISH REASONS;
  • 00:03:46.270 --> 00:03:48.260
  • YOU HAVE TO USE IT
  • 00:03:48.260 --> 00:03:49.220
  • FOR WHAT YOUR BOSS
  • 00:03:49.220 --> 00:03:51.010
  • IS TELLING YOU TO DO.
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:52.130
  • THIS STEWARD WAS
  • 00:03:52.130 --> 00:03:54.000
  • AN UNJUST STEWARD.
  • 00:03:54.000 --> 00:03:55.180
  • HE HAD BEEN TAKING
  • 00:03:55.180 --> 00:03:56.090
  • HIS MASTER'S MONEY
  • 00:03:56.090 --> 00:03:58.040
  • AND MISUSING IT,
  • 00:03:58.040 --> 00:04:00.090
  • AND, APPARENTLY, HE HAD BEEN
  • 00:04:00.090 --> 00:04:01.230
  • BLOWING IT ON THINGS
  • 00:04:01.230 --> 00:04:03.060
  • THAT DIDN'T HAVE
  • 00:04:03.060 --> 00:04:04.050
  • ANY LONG TERM VALUE,
  • 00:04:04.050 --> 00:04:05.160
  • BECAUSE WHEN HIS MASTER CAME IN
  • 00:04:05.160 --> 00:04:07.270
  • AND SAYS, PUT YOUR BOOKS
  • 00:04:07.270 --> 00:04:08.240
  • IN ORDER,
  • 00:04:08.240 --> 00:04:10.000
  • I'M GOING TO EXAMINE,
  • 00:04:10.000 --> 00:04:10.270
  • WHAT'S HAPPENED,
  • 00:04:10.270 --> 00:04:11.220
  • AND IF YOU...IF WHAT I'VE HEARD
  • 00:04:11.220 --> 00:04:13.220
  • ABOUT YOU IS TRUE,
  • 00:04:13.220 --> 00:04:14.240
  • THEN YOU ARE GOING TO
  • 00:04:14.240 --> 00:04:15.090
  • LOSE YOUR STEWARDSHIP,
  • 00:04:15.090 --> 00:04:17.040
  • AND THIS MAN SAID,
  • 00:04:17.040 --> 00:04:18.070
  • WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?
  • 00:04:18.070 --> 00:04:19.030
  • I CAN'T DIG, I'M ASHAMED TO BEG.
  • 00:04:19.070 --> 00:04:22.070
  • THAT SHOWS THAT HE HADN'T
  • 00:04:22.070 --> 00:04:23.130
  • TAKEN ANY OF THIS MONEY
  • 00:04:23.130 --> 00:04:24.250
  • AND PLANNED FOR THE FUTURE.
  • 00:04:24.250 --> 00:04:26.150
  • HE HADN'T INVESTED IT.
  • 00:04:26.150 --> 00:04:27.280
  • HE HADN'T SAVED IT;
  • 00:04:27.280 --> 00:04:29.040
  • HE HAD BLOWN IT
  • 00:04:29.040 --> 00:04:30.200
  • ON TEMPORARY THINGS.
  • 00:04:30.200 --> 00:04:33.070
  • AND SO, WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:34.190
  • HE KNEW HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:04:34.190 --> 00:04:35.250
  • BE FIRED,
  • 00:04:35.250 --> 00:04:36.100
  • BECAUSE HE WAS GUILTY.
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.190
  • HE HAD MISMANAGED
  • 00:04:37.190 --> 00:04:38.170
  • HIS MASTER'S MONEY,
  • 00:04:38.170 --> 00:04:40.060
  • AND SO, WHAT HE DID,
  • 00:04:40.060 --> 00:04:41.060
  • HE CALLED IN ALL OF
  • 00:04:41.060 --> 00:04:42.070
  • HIS LORD'S DEBTORS
  • 00:04:42.070 --> 00:04:43.130
  • AND DISCOUNTED THEIR BILLS
  • 00:04:43.130 --> 00:04:45.030
  • FROM 20% TO 50%
  • 00:04:45.060 --> 00:04:48.060
  • AND HE GAVE THE EQUIVALENT
  • 00:04:48.060 --> 00:04:49.200
  • OF THOUSANDS,
  • 00:04:49.200 --> 00:04:50.100
  • MAYBE TENS OF THOUSANDS
  • 00:04:50.100 --> 00:04:52.030
  • OF DOLLARS OF DISCOUNTS
  • 00:04:52.030 --> 00:04:53.190
  • TO PEOPLE THAT OWED
  • 00:04:53.190 --> 00:04:55.010
  • HIS MASTER MONEY.
  • 00:04:55.010 --> 00:04:56.140
  • DO YOU KNOW
  • 00:04:56.140 --> 00:04:56.260
  • THAT'S STILL STEALING?
  • 00:04:56.260 --> 00:04:58.120
  • HE DIDN'T DO THIS
  • 00:04:58.120 --> 00:04:59.080
  • WITH THE MASTER'S APPROVAL.
  • 00:04:59.080 --> 00:05:01.120
  • HE MIGHT HAVE HAD THE AUTHORITY,
  • 00:05:01.120 --> 00:05:03.080
  • BUT HE DIDN'T DO IT
  • 00:05:03.080 --> 00:05:04.000
  • WITH APPROVAL.
  • 00:05:04.000 --> 00:05:04.180
  • WHAT HE WAS DOING,
  • 00:05:04.180 --> 00:05:05.130
  • IT SAYS, RIGHT HERE IN VERSE 4,
  • 00:05:05.130 --> 00:05:07.240
  • I AM RESOLVED WHAT TO DO,
  • 00:05:07.240 --> 00:05:09.040
  • THAT, WHEN I AM PUT OUT
  • 00:05:09.040 --> 00:05:10.060
  • OF THE STEWARDSHIP,
  • 00:05:10.060 --> 00:05:11.130
  • THEY MAY RECEIVE ME
  • 00:05:11.130 --> 00:05:12.150
  • INTO THEIR HOUSES.
  • 00:05:12.150 --> 00:05:13.230
  • THE REASON HE DID IT WAS,
  • 00:05:13.230 --> 00:05:15.200
  • SPECIFICALLY, TO BRIBE THEM,
  • 00:05:15.200 --> 00:05:18.090
  • SO THAT WHEN HE GOT FIRED,
  • 00:05:18.090 --> 00:05:19.250
  • HE COULD COME AND SAY,
  • 00:05:19.250 --> 00:05:20.250
  • DO YOU REMEMBER HOW MUCH
  • 00:05:20.250 --> 00:05:22.050
  • I DISCOUNTED YOUR BILL?
  • 00:05:22.050 --> 00:05:23.220
  • COULD YOU HELP ME?
  • 00:05:23.220 --> 00:05:24.250
  • COULD I STAY WITH YOU?
  • 00:05:24.250 --> 00:05:25.260
  • COULD YOU FEED ME?
  • 00:05:25.260 --> 00:05:27.230
  • HE WAS BRIBING PEOPLE.
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:28.270
  • HE WAS TAKING HIS MASTER'S MONEY
  • 00:05:28.270 --> 00:05:30.240
  • AND STILL STEALING IT,
  • 00:05:30.240 --> 00:05:31.270
  • BUT INSTEAD OF PUTTING IT
  • 00:05:31.270 --> 00:05:32.250
  • IN HIS POCKET,
  • 00:05:32.250 --> 00:05:34.100
  • HE WAS PUTTING IT IN THE POCKETS
  • 00:05:34.100 --> 00:05:36.090
  • OF OTHER PEOPLE,
  • 00:05:36.090 --> 00:05:37.140
  • AND, BASICALLY, BRIBING THEM,
  • 00:05:37.140 --> 00:05:39.180
  • SO THAT HE WOULD BENEFIT
  • 00:05:39.180 --> 00:05:41.110
  • WHEN HE WAS FIRED.
  • 00:05:41.110 --> 00:05:43.140
  • THAT'S AN AMAZING STORY.
  • 00:05:43.140 --> 00:05:44.230
  • IT'S NOT SO UNUSUAL.
  • 00:05:44.230 --> 00:05:46.070
  • THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT HAVE
  • 00:05:46.070 --> 00:05:47.150
  • STOLEN MONEY
  • 00:05:47.150 --> 00:05:48.070
  • FROM THEIR CORPORATIONS
  • 00:05:48.070 --> 00:05:49.090
  • THAT THEY WORK FOR OR WHATEVER
  • 00:05:49.090 --> 00:05:50.190
  • AND USE IT FOR TEMPORAL THINGS.
  • 00:05:50.190 --> 00:05:52.110
  • UP UNTIL VERSE 8,
  • 00:05:52.110 --> 00:05:54.250
  • IT'S REALLY NOT TOTALLY UNUSUAL
  • 00:05:55.100 --> 00:05:58.100
  • TO HEAR THAT SOMEBODY
  • 00:05:58.100 --> 00:05:59.120
  • MISUSED MONEY,
  • 00:05:59.120 --> 00:06:00.120
  • STOLE IT,
  • 00:06:00.120 --> 00:06:01.090
  • USED IT FOR THEMSELVES,
  • 00:06:01.090 --> 00:06:02.110
  • YOU KNOW, WAS DRAINING MONEY
  • 00:06:02.110 --> 00:06:04.290
  • FROM THE BUSINESS OR WHATEVER,
  • 00:06:04.290 --> 00:06:06.100
  • BUT WHAT'S REALLY UNUSUAL
  • 00:06:06.100 --> 00:06:08.020
  • ABOUT THIS STORY IS VERSE 8,
  • 00:06:08.020 --> 00:06:10.050
  • AND IN VERSE 8, IT SAYS THAT,
  • 00:06:10.050 --> 00:06:11.220
  • THE LORD,
  • 00:06:11.220 --> 00:06:12.090
  • TALKING ABOUT HIS MASTER,
  • 00:06:12.090 --> 00:06:13.140
  • HIS BOSS, COMMENDED HIM,
  • 00:06:13.140 --> 00:06:16.130
  • COMMENDED THE UNJUST STEWARD,
  • 00:06:16.130 --> 00:06:17.260
  • BECAUSE HE HAD DONE WISELY...
  • 00:06:17.260 --> 00:06:20.100
  • ACTUALLY COMMENDED HIM.
  • 00:06:20.100 --> 00:06:21.160
  • HE WAS STEALING MONEY FROM HIM,
  • 00:06:21.160 --> 00:06:22.280
  • AND YET, THIS BOSS WOUND UP
  • 00:06:22.280 --> 00:06:24.250
  • GIVING HIM A COMPLIMENT.
  • 00:06:24.250 --> 00:06:26.270
  • NOW THAT FOR DECADES
  • 00:06:26.270 --> 00:06:29.070
  • THREW ME OFF.
  • 00:06:29.070 --> 00:06:30.170
  • I JUST COULDN'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:06:30.170 --> 00:06:31.200
  • WHAT IS THE PURPOSE HERE?
  • 00:06:31.200 --> 00:06:34.170
  • AND ONE OF THE PURPO...
  • 00:06:34.170 --> 00:06:36.040
  • THERE'S TWO MAIN THINGS
  • 00:06:36.040 --> 00:06:36.290
  • I WANT TO SAY.
  • 00:06:36.290 --> 00:06:37.140
  • YOU...PROBABLY SAY MORE,
  • 00:06:37.140 --> 00:06:38.130
  • BUT TWO MAIN THINGS;
  • 00:06:38.130 --> 00:06:40.060
  • ONE, THE REASON THIS MAN
  • 00:06:40.060 --> 00:06:41.220
  • WAS COMPLIMENTED
  • 00:06:41.220 --> 00:06:43.210
  • WAS BECAUSE HE HAD FINALLY
  • 00:06:43.210 --> 00:06:46.010
  • REALIZED THAT MONEY GIVES YOU
  • 00:06:46.010 --> 00:06:48.070
  • POWER OR INFLUENCE
  • 00:06:48.070 --> 00:06:51.020
  • FOR THE FUTURE.
  • 00:06:51.020 --> 00:06:53.040
  • PRIOR TO THIS TIME,
  • 00:06:53.040 --> 00:06:54.010
  • THIS MAN HAD TAKEN ALL OF
  • 00:06:54.010 --> 00:06:55.160
  • THE MONEY THAT HE HAD STOLEN,
  • 00:06:55.160 --> 00:06:56.250
  • AND HE HAD...HE HAD BLOWN IT
  • 00:06:56.250 --> 00:06:58.070
  • ON TEMPORARY THINGS.
  • 00:06:58.070 --> 00:06:59.030
  • THERE WAS NO PLANS
  • 00:06:59.030 --> 00:07:00.140
  • FOR THE FUTURE.
  • 00:07:00.140 --> 00:07:01.160
  • BUT WHEN HE FINALLY CAME TO...
  • 00:07:01.160 --> 00:07:02.240
  • FACE TO FACE WITH THE FACT THAT,
  • 00:07:02.240 --> 00:07:04.170
  • I'M GOING TO LOSE MY JOB,
  • 00:07:04.170 --> 00:07:06.060
  • HE WAS STILL STEALING MONEY,
  • 00:07:06.060 --> 00:07:07.240
  • BUT NOW HE WAS USING THAT MONEY
  • 00:07:07.240 --> 00:07:09.160
  • TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE.
  • 00:07:09.160 --> 00:07:11.060
  • YOU COULD SAY IN A NEGATIVE WAY,
  • 00:07:11.060 --> 00:07:12.160
  • HE WAS BRIBING THEM,
  • 00:07:12.160 --> 00:07:14.050
  • AND I'M NOT ADVOCATING
  • 00:07:14.050 --> 00:07:16.040
  • BRIBING PEOPLE OR STUFF,
  • 00:07:16.040 --> 00:07:17.140
  • BUT NONETHELESS,
  • 00:07:17.140 --> 00:07:18.110
  • HE WAS THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE
  • 00:07:18.110 --> 00:07:20.140
  • AND THIS IS THE REASON
  • 00:07:20.140 --> 00:07:21.160
  • THAT HIS MASTER COMMENDED HIM,
  • 00:07:21.160 --> 00:07:23.040
  • BECAUSE, FINALLY, YOU BEGAN
  • 00:07:23.040 --> 00:07:25.060
  • TO START THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:26.170
  • THE FUTURE.
  • 00:07:26.170 --> 00:07:29.040
  • YOU KNOW, WE...IT JUST
  • 00:07:29.040 --> 00:07:30.010
  • AMAZES ME.
  • 00:07:30.010 --> 00:07:30.220
  • I'VE DEALT WITH MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:07:30.220 --> 00:07:32.250
  • THAT HAVE HAD GREAT POSITIONS,
  • 00:07:32.250 --> 00:07:34.220
  • GREAT OPPORTUNITIES,
  • 00:07:34.220 --> 00:07:36.110
  • AND THEY JUST...THEY GO OUT
  • 00:07:36.110 --> 00:07:38.230
  • AND HAVE SOME KIND OF
  • 00:07:38.230 --> 00:07:39.270
  • A RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:07:39.270 --> 00:07:41.040
  • A SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:07:41.040 --> 00:07:42.130
  • OR SOMETHING,
  • 00:07:42.130 --> 00:07:42.270
  • THAT RUINS THEIR MINISTRY,
  • 00:07:42.270 --> 00:07:45.100
  • AND THEN AFTER EVERYTHING
  • 00:07:45.100 --> 00:07:46.130
  • AROUND THEM CRASHES AND BURNED,
  • 00:07:46.130 --> 00:07:48.020
  • THEY THINK,
  • 00:07:48.020 --> 00:07:48.140
  • WHAT WAS I THINKING OF?
  • 00:07:48.140 --> 00:07:49.200
  • AND THEY'VE LOST THEIR FAMILY
  • 00:07:49.200 --> 00:07:51.160
  • AND THEY'VE LOST THEIR CHURCH,
  • 00:07:51.160 --> 00:07:52.240
  • THEY'VE LOST THEIR MINISTRY,
  • 00:07:52.240 --> 00:07:54.010
  • THEY'VE DONE ALL OF THIS,
  • 00:07:54.010 --> 00:07:55.020
  • AND IT WAS BECAUSE
  • 00:07:55.020 --> 00:07:55.290
  • THEY WERE JUST THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:07:55.290 --> 00:07:57.080
  • WHAT MIGHT GRATIFY THEM
  • 00:07:57.080 --> 00:07:58.250
  • FOR THE NEXT FEW MINUTES.
  • 00:07:58.250 --> 00:08:01.070
  • MAN, THAT'S SHORT-TERM THINKING.
  • 00:08:01.070 --> 00:08:02.130
  • DID YOU KNOW SIN ISN'T SMART?
  • 00:08:02.260 --> 00:08:05.260
  • SIN IS EMOTIONAL.
  • 00:08:05.260 --> 00:08:07.200
  • SIN IS STUPID.
  • 00:08:07.200 --> 00:08:09.090
  • SIN WILL TAKE YOU FURTHER THAN
  • 00:08:09.090 --> 00:08:10.210
  • YOU WANT TO GO,
  • 00:08:10.210 --> 00:08:11.160
  • KEEP YOU LONGER THAN
  • 00:08:11.160 --> 00:08:12.170
  • YOU WANT TO STAY,
  • 00:08:12.170 --> 00:08:13.150
  • AND COST YOU MORE THAN
  • 00:08:13.150 --> 00:08:14.170
  • YOU WANT TO PAY.
  • 00:08:14.170 --> 00:08:16.040
  • SIN IS NOT SMART.
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.030
  • IF A PERSON WOULD SIT DOWN
  • 00:08:18.030 --> 00:08:19.150
  • AND THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:08:19.150 --> 00:08:20.070
  • THEY WOULD NEVER GO AND RISK
  • 00:08:20.070 --> 00:08:22.220
  • LOSING THEIR MATE
  • 00:08:22.220 --> 00:08:23.280
  • AND THEIR CHILDREN
  • 00:08:23.280 --> 00:08:24.260
  • AND THEIR JOB AND THEIR FINANCES
  • 00:08:24.260 --> 00:08:27.040
  • AND THEIR HEALTH
  • 00:08:27.040 --> 00:08:28.050
  • AND ON AND ON YOU COULD GO,
  • 00:08:28.050 --> 00:08:29.200
  • RESPECT, HONOR,
  • 00:08:29.200 --> 00:08:31.170
  • AND ALL OF THESE THINGS,
  • 00:08:31.170 --> 00:08:32.180
  • BUT PEOPLE JUST...
  • 00:08:32.180 --> 00:08:33.210
  • THEY'RE SHORT-TERM THINKING.
  • 00:08:34.030 --> 00:08:37.030
  • THIS MAN WAS FORCED
  • 00:08:37.030 --> 00:08:38.240
  • INTO THINKING ABOUT,
  • 00:08:38.240 --> 00:08:40.000
  • ALRIGHT, WHAT CAN I DO
  • 00:08:40.000 --> 00:08:41.170
  • FOR THE FUTURE?
  • 00:08:41.170 --> 00:08:42.150
  • AND BECAUSE...HE WAS STILL
  • 00:08:42.150 --> 00:08:43.290
  • STEALING MONEY.
  • 00:08:43.290 --> 00:08:44.180
  • THAT'S NOT WHAT'S
  • 00:08:44.180 --> 00:08:45.100
  • BEING COMPLIMENTED,
  • 00:08:45.100 --> 00:08:47.040
  • BUT HE WAS THINKING ABOUT
  • 00:08:47.040 --> 00:08:48.130
  • THE FUTURE,
  • 00:08:48.130 --> 00:08:49.060
  • AND FINALLY, HIS MASTER SAID,
  • 00:08:49.060 --> 00:08:51.030
  • YOU KNOW, FINALLY,
  • 00:08:51.030 --> 00:08:52.030
  • YOU'RE BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND
  • 00:08:52.030 --> 00:08:54.040
  • THAT MONEY GIVES YOU INFLUENCE,
  • 00:08:54.040 --> 00:08:56.100
  • MONEY GIVES YOU POWER,
  • 00:08:56.100 --> 00:08:57.270
  • AND YOU STARTED USING IT
  • 00:08:57.270 --> 00:08:59.040
  • FOR YOUR FUTURE
  • 00:08:59.040 --> 00:09:00.110
  • AND PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE,
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:01.260
  • INSTEAD OF JUST
  • 00:09:01.260 --> 00:09:02.170
  • THINKING SHORT TERM.
  • 00:09:02.170 --> 00:09:05.160
  • MAN, THAT'S BIG,
  • 00:09:05.160 --> 00:09:08.030
  • AND HERE'S THE SECOND THING
  • 00:09:08.030 --> 00:09:08.280
  • I WANTED TO POINT OUT,
  • 00:09:08.280 --> 00:09:10.120
  • THAT THIS MASTER WAS SO DETACHED
  • 00:09:10.120 --> 00:09:13.100
  • FROM HIS MONEY
  • 00:09:13.100 --> 00:09:16.060
  • THAT HE WAS ABLE TO COMPLEMENT
  • 00:09:16.060 --> 00:09:18.150
  • A PERSON WHO WAS STEALING MONEY
  • 00:09:18.150 --> 00:09:19.240
  • FROM HIM.
  • 00:09:19.240 --> 00:09:22.200
  • MOST PEOPLE CAN'T DO THAT,
  • 00:09:22.200 --> 00:09:23.230
  • BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE...
  • 00:09:23.230 --> 00:09:24.210
  • IF YOU HA...YOU KNOW, IT'S LIKE
  • 00:09:24.210 --> 00:09:25.280
  • YOU HAVE THIS INVISIBLE STRING
  • 00:09:25.280 --> 00:09:27.110
  • THAT RUNS FROM YOUR WALLET
  • 00:09:27.110 --> 00:09:29.080
  • DIRECTLY TO YOUR HEART
  • 00:09:29.080 --> 00:09:31.050
  • AND IF SOMEBODY TOUCHES
  • 00:09:31.050 --> 00:09:32.080
  • YOUR MONEY,
  • 00:09:32.080 --> 00:09:33.010
  • MAN, THEY HAVE TOUCHED
  • 00:09:33.010 --> 00:09:33.270
  • YOUR HEART.
  • 00:09:33.270 --> 00:09:34.290
  • IF I WAS TO TAKE YOUR WALLET
  • 00:09:34.290 --> 00:09:36.270
  • AND IF I WAS TO WALK OUT
  • 00:09:36.270 --> 00:09:38.010
  • THE DOOR,
  • 00:09:38.010 --> 00:09:38.130
  • YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:09:38.130 --> 00:09:38.290
  • YOUR HEART WOULD GO WITH ME.
  • 00:09:38.290 --> 00:09:41.230
  • BECAUSE MOST PEOPLE ARE REALLY
  • 00:09:41.230 --> 00:09:43.060
  • ATTACHED TO THEIR MONEY.
  • 00:09:43.060 --> 00:09:44.110
  • THIS MASTER WAS DETACHED
  • 00:09:44.140 --> 00:09:47.140
  • FROM HIS MONEY.
  • 00:09:47.140 --> 00:09:48.010
  • HE SAW IT AS A TOOL,
  • 00:09:48.010 --> 00:09:50.220
  • AS AN ASSET.
  • 00:09:50.220 --> 00:09:51.110
  • I'M SURE HE MANAGED IT WELL,
  • 00:09:51.110 --> 00:09:53.230
  • BUT HE...HE WASN'T BOUND IN IT.
  • 00:09:53.230 --> 00:09:56.030
  • IT WASN'T LIKE HIS HEART
  • 00:09:56.030 --> 00:09:57.160
  • WAS GOING TO BE BROKEN,
  • 00:09:57.160 --> 00:09:58.180
  • BECAUSE THIS MAN HAD STOLEN
  • 00:09:58.180 --> 00:10:00.100
  • SOMETHING FROM HIM.
  • 00:10:00.100 --> 00:10:02.100
  • YOU KNOW, MY WIFE IS A GREAT
  • 00:10:02.100 --> 00:10:03.220
  • EXAMPLE OF THIS,
  • 00:10:03.220 --> 00:10:04.180
  • BECAUSE BACK IN 2002,
  • 00:10:04.180 --> 00:10:07.130
  • WE HAD WHAT WAS CALLED
  • 00:10:07.130 --> 00:10:08.140
  • THE HAYMAN FIRE IN COLORADO
  • 00:10:08.140 --> 00:10:10.200
  • AND IT STARTED EIGHT MILES
  • 00:10:10.200 --> 00:10:12.010
  • FROM OUR HOUSE
  • 00:10:12.010 --> 00:10:12.280
  • AND IT BURNT WITHIN ONE MILE
  • 00:10:12.280 --> 00:10:14.160
  • OF OUR HOUSE.
  • 00:10:14.160 --> 00:10:15.040
  • THERE WAS 140 SOMETHING
  • 00:10:15.040 --> 00:10:17.140
  • THOUSAND ACRES THAT WERE BURNED.
  • 00:10:17.140 --> 00:10:20.000
  • A NUMBER OF HOUSES
  • 00:10:20.000 --> 00:10:21.030
  • AND STRUCTURES WERE BURNED,
  • 00:10:21.030 --> 00:10:22.270
  • AND...AND ANYWAY, WE WERE UNDER
  • 00:10:22.270 --> 00:10:24.080
  • MANDATORY EVACU...EVACUATION.
  • 00:10:24.080 --> 00:10:26.270
  • THE...THE LAW ENFORCEMENT CAME
  • 00:10:26.270 --> 00:10:29.050
  • AND MADE US EVACUATE OUR HOUSE,
  • 00:10:29.050 --> 00:10:31.250
  • AND ALL OF MY NEIGHBORS,
  • 00:10:31.250 --> 00:10:33.030
  • THEY WERE LOADING UP
  • 00:10:33.030 --> 00:10:34.010
  • THEIR TRUCKS,
  • 00:10:34.010 --> 00:10:34.260
  • THEY WERE GETTING U-HAULS,
  • 00:10:34.260 --> 00:10:36.030
  • THEY WERE TAKING ALL OF
  • 00:10:36.030 --> 00:10:37.000
  • THE FURNITURE THAT THEY COULD
  • 00:10:37.000 --> 00:10:38.100
  • WITH THEM.
  • 00:10:38.100 --> 00:10:39.130
  • MY WIFE AND I, WE GOT
  • 00:10:39.130 --> 00:10:40.170
  • OUR...OUR PHOTOS THAT COULDN'T
  • 00:10:40.170 --> 00:10:42.180
  • BE REPLACED,
  • 00:10:42.180 --> 00:10:43.110
  • OUR IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS
  • 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:44.250
  • AND JUST A FEW THINGS,
  • 00:10:44.250 --> 00:10:46.150
  • AND THEN WE JUST TOOK
  • 00:10:46.150 --> 00:10:47.070
  • OUR AUTHORITY
  • 00:10:47.070 --> 00:10:48.010
  • AND PRAYED OVER OUR HOUSE
  • 00:10:48.010 --> 00:10:49.290
  • AND BELIEVED THAT THERE WASN'T
  • 00:10:49.290 --> 00:10:51.040
  • GOING TO BE ANY FIRE DAMAGE,
  • 00:10:51.040 --> 00:10:53.020
  • AND THERE WASN'T,
  • 00:10:53.020 --> 00:10:54.040
  • PRAISE GOD.
  • 00:10:54.040 --> 00:10:54.210
  • WE WERE SPARED,
  • 00:10:54.210 --> 00:10:55.140
  • AND YOU CAN'T EVEN SEE
  • 00:10:55.140 --> 00:10:56.280
  • ANY FIRE DAMAGE FROM OUR HOUSE,
  • 00:10:56.280 --> 00:10:59.190
  • AND SO, GOD ANSWERED
  • 00:10:59.190 --> 00:11:00.290
  • OUR PRAYERS.
  • 00:11:00.290 --> 00:11:01.290
  • BUT AS WE WERE GETTING READY
  • 00:11:01.290 --> 00:11:03.270
  • TO LEAVE,
  • 00:11:03.270 --> 00:11:04.180
  • AS WE GOT OUR THINGS
  • 00:11:04.180 --> 00:11:05.170
  • AND WE WERE LEAVING
  • 00:11:05.170 --> 00:11:06.070
  • FOR THE...FOR THE LAST TIME,
  • 00:11:06.070 --> 00:11:07.270
  • YOU KNOW, IT WAS TWO WEEKS
  • 00:11:07.270 --> 00:11:09.050
  • THAT WE WERE EVACUATED
  • 00:11:09.050 --> 00:11:11.050
  • FROM OUR HOUSE,
  • 00:11:11.050 --> 00:11:12.250
  • AND AS WE WERE LEAVING,
  • 00:11:12.250 --> 00:11:14.010
  • NOT KNOWING IF WE WOULD
  • 00:11:14.010 --> 00:11:14.290
  • HAVE ANYTHING WHEN WE CAME BACK,
  • 00:11:15.080 --> 00:11:18.080
  • MY WIFE SAID, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:18.080 --> 00:11:19.260
  • I AGREE WITH YOU THAT THIS HOUSE
  • 00:11:19.260 --> 00:11:22.050
  • IS PROTECTED,
  • 00:11:22.050 --> 00:11:23.010
  • THAT GOD IS GOING TO KEEP US,
  • 00:11:23.010 --> 00:11:24.090
  • THAT WE AREN'T GOING TO
  • 00:11:24.090 --> 00:11:24.270
  • LOSE ANYTHING,
  • 00:11:24.270 --> 00:11:25.200
  • BUT SHE SAYS, IT'S JUST STUFF.
  • 00:11:26.020 --> 00:11:29.020
  • AND SHE SAYS, IF WE WERE TO LOSE
  • 00:11:29.020 --> 00:11:31.000
  • EVERYTHING THAT WE'VE GOT,
  • 00:11:31.000 --> 00:11:32.250
  • WE HAD FUN GETTING IT,
  • 00:11:32.250 --> 00:11:34.170
  • AND WE WOULD HAVE FUN
  • 00:11:34.170 --> 00:11:35.160
  • GETTING IT BACK.
  • 00:11:35.160 --> 00:11:38.040
  • NOW THAT'S THAT ATTITUDE
  • 00:11:38.040 --> 00:11:40.110
  • THAT THIS MASTER HAD.
  • 00:11:40.110 --> 00:11:42.230
  • LET ME JUST ASK YOU,
  • 00:11:42.230 --> 00:11:43.190
  • IF...YOU KNOW, THAT HOUSE,
  • 00:11:43.190 --> 00:11:44.260
  • I...I DESIGNED THAT HOUSE.
  • 00:11:44.260 --> 00:11:46.270
  • I DREW THE PLANS FOR IT.
  • 00:11:46.270 --> 00:11:48.010
  • I MEAN, I DIDN'T DRAW THE PLANS
  • 00:11:48.010 --> 00:11:49.180
  • THAT THEY BUILT IT FROM.
  • 00:11:49.180 --> 00:11:50.180
  • I'M NOT AN ARCHITECT,
  • 00:11:50.180 --> 00:11:51.200
  • BUT I DREW THE ROUGH SKETCHES.
  • 00:11:51.200 --> 00:11:53.250
  • I DESIGNED IT.
  • 00:11:53.250 --> 00:11:54.280
  • IT'S JAMIE'S DREAM HOUSE.
  • 00:11:54.280 --> 00:11:56.240
  • SHE HAS KNICK-KNACKS EVERYWHERE.
  • 00:11:56.240 --> 00:11:59.170
  • IF WE WERE TO MOVE,
  • 00:11:59.170 --> 00:12:00.120
  • IT WOULD TAKE ONE U-HAUL
  • 00:12:00.120 --> 00:12:02.170
  • TO MOVE HER KNICK-KNACKS,
  • 00:12:02.170 --> 00:12:04.030
  • AND THEN MAYBE ANOTHER ONE
  • 00:12:04.030 --> 00:12:05.040
  • TO MOVE ALL OF THE STUFF.
  • 00:12:05.040 --> 00:12:06.240
  • I MEAN, SHE HAS PERSONALIZED
  • 00:12:06.240 --> 00:12:08.170
  • THIS PLACE.
  • 00:12:08.170 --> 00:12:09.100
  • IT'S GOT JAMIE WRITTEN
  • 00:12:09.100 --> 00:12:10.150
  • ALL OVER IT.
  • 00:12:10.150 --> 00:12:11.250
  • WE LOVE THE PLACE THAT WE LIVE,
  • 00:12:11.250 --> 00:12:13.070
  • AND YET, SHE SAYS,
  • 00:12:13.070 --> 00:12:14.270
  • IT'S JUST STUFF.
  • 00:12:14.270 --> 00:12:17.200
  • YOU KNOW, IT'S...THINK ABOUT IT,
  • 00:12:17.200 --> 00:12:18.190
  • IF YOU WERE TO FACE
  • 00:12:18.190 --> 00:12:20.000
  • THAT YOU WERE GOING TO LOSE
  • 00:12:20.000 --> 00:12:20.280
  • YOUR HOUSE AND STUFF,
  • 00:12:20.280 --> 00:12:21.260
  • THERE'S SOME PEOPLE
  • 00:12:21.260 --> 00:12:22.220
  • THAT IT WOULD JUST BREAK
  • 00:12:22.220 --> 00:12:24.030
  • YOUR HEART,
  • 00:12:24.030 --> 00:12:24.190
  • BECAUSE YOU...YOU REALLY...
  • 00:12:24.190 --> 00:12:26.010
  • YOUR IDENTITY;
  • 00:12:26.010 --> 00:12:28.070
  • YOU ARE TIED TO THAT STUFF
  • 00:12:28.070 --> 00:12:30.290
  • MORE THAN YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO BE.
  • 00:12:30.290 --> 00:12:33.100
  • MAN, I PRAISE GOD FOR A WIFE
  • 00:12:33.100 --> 00:12:35.270
  • THAT CAN LOOK AT ALL OF
  • 00:12:35.270 --> 00:12:37.020
  • THIS STUFF THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:12:37.020 --> 00:12:39.080
  • IN THEIR PROPER PLACE.
  • 00:12:39.080 --> 00:12:40.140
  • WE APPRECIATE WHAT GOD HAS DONE
  • 00:12:40.140 --> 00:12:42.040
  • FOR US,
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:42.180
  • BUT SHE WAS SAYING
  • 00:12:42.180 --> 00:12:43.260
  • IT'S JUST STUFF,
  • 00:12:43.260 --> 00:12:44.220
  • AND IF WE LOSE IT ALL,
  • 00:12:44.220 --> 00:12:45.290
  • WE WOULD GET IT BACK.
  • 00:12:45.290 --> 00:12:46.250
  • WE WOULD GET IT BACK
  • 00:12:46.250 --> 00:12:47.120
  • WITH INTEREST.
  • 00:12:47.120 --> 00:12:48.200
  • SEE, THAT'S THE ATTITUDE
  • 00:12:48.200 --> 00:12:49.180
  • THAT THIS MASTER HAD.
  • 00:12:49.180 --> 00:12:51.020
  • HE WAS GOING TO DEAL WITH
  • 00:12:51.020 --> 00:12:52.060
  • THIS UNJUST STEWARD,
  • 00:12:52.060 --> 00:12:53.270
  • BECAUSE THAT'S NOT A GOOD BOSS
  • 00:12:53.270 --> 00:12:55.180
  • TO LET SOMEBODY
  • 00:12:55.180 --> 00:12:56.100
  • JUST STEAL FROM YOU
  • 00:12:56.100 --> 00:12:57.060
  • AND MISAPPROPRIATE FUNDS
  • 00:12:57.060 --> 00:12:58.160
  • AND THINGS LIKE THAT,
  • 00:12:58.160 --> 00:12:59.090
  • SO, YES, HE WAS GOING TO
  • 00:12:59.090 --> 00:13:00.110
  • DEAL WITH IT,
  • 00:13:00.110 --> 00:13:01.150
  • BUT HE WASN'T HURT PERSONALLY.
  • 00:13:01.150 --> 00:13:03.160
  • IT'S NOT LIKE HIS IDENTITY
  • 00:13:03.160 --> 00:13:05.210
  • WAS IN HIS STUFF,
  • 00:13:05.210 --> 00:13:08.110
  • AND YET, I MEET SO MANY PEOPLE
  • 00:13:08.110 --> 00:13:10.250
  • THAT THEIR IDENTITY
  • 00:13:10.250 --> 00:13:12.000
  • IS IN THE HOUSE
  • 00:13:12.000 --> 00:13:13.070
  • THAT THEY LIVE IN,
  • 00:13:13.070 --> 00:13:14.030
  • THE CARS THAT THEY DRIVE,
  • 00:13:14.030 --> 00:13:15.190
  • THE CLOTHES THAT THEY HAVE,
  • 00:13:15.190 --> 00:13:16.260
  • THE JEWELRY.
  • 00:13:16.260 --> 00:13:18.040
  • THEY'RE CONSTANTLY...
  • 00:13:18.040 --> 00:13:19.020
  • THAT'S WHERE THEIR IDENTITY IS,
  • 00:13:19.020 --> 00:13:20.230
  • AND IF SOMEBODY WAS TO TOUCH
  • 00:13:20.230 --> 00:13:22.060
  • THEIR STUFF,
  • 00:13:22.060 --> 00:13:23.170
  • IT WOULD STRIKE
  • 00:13:23.170 --> 00:13:24.080
  • RIGHT AT THEIR HEART.
  • 00:13:24.080 --> 00:13:25.280
  • THIS MASTER WASN'T LIKE THAT.
  • 00:13:26.090 --> 00:13:29.090
  • HE WAS DETACHED ENOUGH
  • 00:13:29.090 --> 00:13:31.020
  • THAT HE COULD ACTUALLY
  • 00:13:31.020 --> 00:13:31.270
  • COMPLEMENT THE PERSON
  • 00:13:31.270 --> 00:13:33.020
  • WHO HAD BEEN STEALING MONEY
  • 00:13:33.020 --> 00:13:34.080
  • AND SAY THAT,
  • 00:13:34.080 --> 00:13:34.290
  • FINALLY, YOU'RE BEGINNING
  • 00:13:34.290 --> 00:13:36.060
  • TO LEARN SOMETHING.
  • 00:13:36.090 --> 00:13:39.090
  • NOW SEE, THAT'S AN ATTITUDE
  • 00:13:39.090 --> 00:13:40.160
  • THAT ONLY A STEWARD HAS.
  • 00:13:40.160 --> 00:13:43.080
  • ONLY A PERSON WHO REALIZES
  • 00:13:43.080 --> 00:13:46.020
  • THAT GOD IS HIS SOURCE,
  • 00:13:46.020 --> 00:13:47.200
  • AND WHATEVER I'VE GOT,
  • 00:13:47.200 --> 00:13:48.220
  • GOD GAVE IT TO ME,
  • 00:13:48.220 --> 00:13:49.280
  • AND IF I LOSE IT,
  • 00:13:49.280 --> 00:13:50.230
  • GOD'LL GIVE IT BACK TO ME
  • 00:13:50.230 --> 00:13:52.060
  • WITH INTEREST.
  • 00:13:52.060 --> 00:13:53.270
  • YOU KNOW, THERE'S A SCRIPTURE
  • 00:13:53.270 --> 00:13:54.210
  • IN PROVERBS, CHAPTER 6,
  • 00:13:54.210 --> 00:13:56.000
  • THAT TALKS ABOUT,
  • 00:13:56.000 --> 00:13:56.280
  • IF YOU CATCH A THIEF,
  • 00:13:56.280 --> 00:13:58.050
  • HE HAS TO RESTORE SEVENFOLD
  • 00:13:58.050 --> 00:13:59.200
  • OR GIVE ALL OF THE SUBSTANCE
  • 00:13:59.200 --> 00:14:00.290
  • OF HIS HOUSE TO PAY,
  • 00:14:00.290 --> 00:14:03.190
  • AND I'VE USED THAT VERSE BEFORE.
  • 00:14:03.190 --> 00:14:05.180
  • THE VERY FIRST BOOK
  • 00:14:05.180 --> 00:14:06.140
  • THAT I EVER WROTE WAS A BOOK
  • 00:14:06.140 --> 00:14:08.120
  • ENTITLED: LIVING IN THE BALANCE
  • 00:14:08.120 --> 00:14:09.250
  • OF GRACE AND FAITH,
  • 00:14:09.250 --> 00:14:11.100
  • AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY MONEY
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:13.230
  • TO GET THIS BOOK PRINTED
  • 00:14:13.230 --> 00:14:14.250
  • WHATSOEVER.
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:15.150
  • SO, WHAT I DID WAS GO
  • 00:14:15.150 --> 00:14:16.160
  • TO MY PARTNERS,
  • 00:14:16.160 --> 00:14:17.270
  • AND I...I FORGET
  • 00:14:17.270 --> 00:14:18.230
  • THE EXACT DETAILS,
  • 00:14:18.230 --> 00:14:19.220
  • BUT I THINK I TOLD THEM,
  • 00:14:19.220 --> 00:14:20.220
  • IT WAS, LIKE, $40 OR $45.000
  • 00:14:20.220 --> 00:14:23.130
  • TO PRINT UP LIKE 10.000 COPIES
  • 00:14:23.130 --> 00:14:25.290
  • OR SOMETHING,
  • 00:14:25.290 --> 00:14:26.140
  • AND SO, I ASKED THEM
  • 00:14:26.140 --> 00:14:28.170
  • TO CONTRIBUTE IN ADVANCE,
  • 00:14:28.170 --> 00:14:31.020
  • AND THEN WHEN WE GOT
  • 00:14:31.020 --> 00:14:32.050
  • THE BOOKS PRINTED,
  • 00:14:32.050 --> 00:14:32.260
  • WE WOULD SEND THEM
  • 00:14:32.260 --> 00:14:33.180
  • THEIR OWN PERSONAL COPY.
  • 00:14:33.180 --> 00:14:35.140
  • SO, THAT WAS THE DEAL.
  • 00:14:35.140 --> 00:14:37.000
  • WELL, I WENT WITH A PUBLISHER
  • 00:14:37.000 --> 00:14:38.210
  • AND IT TURNED OUT THAT THE MAN
  • 00:14:38.210 --> 00:14:40.050
  • WHO REPRESENTED
  • 00:14:40.050 --> 00:14:40.270
  • THAT PUBLISHING COMPANY,
  • 00:14:40.270 --> 00:14:42.150
  • HE STOLE FROM ME,
  • 00:14:42.150 --> 00:14:43.200
  • ALSO FROM NICKY CRUZ,
  • 00:14:43.200 --> 00:14:45.020
  • FROM CHARLES STANLEY.
  • 00:14:45.020 --> 00:14:46.100
  • HE DID THE SAME THING
  • 00:14:46.100 --> 00:14:47.050
  • TO ALL OF US,
  • 00:14:47.050 --> 00:14:48.090
  • AND HE BASICALLY SAID,
  • 00:14:48.090 --> 00:14:49.190
  • THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:14:49.190 --> 00:14:50.040
  • WE'RE IN A FINANCIAL CRUNCH,
  • 00:14:50.040 --> 00:14:51.170
  • IF YOU WILL PAY THIS MONEY
  • 00:14:51.170 --> 00:14:53.130
  • UP FRONT,
  • 00:14:53.130 --> 00:14:54.150
  • WE WILL GIVE YOU A DISCOUNT,
  • 00:14:54.150 --> 00:14:56.050
  • AND IT WAS GOING TO BE LIKE
  • 00:14:56.050 --> 00:14:56.290
  • 70 SOMETHING THOUSAND DOLLARS
  • 00:14:56.290 --> 00:14:58.250
  • TO PRINT THE BOOKS,
  • 00:14:58.250 --> 00:14:59.190
  • BUT HE GAVE ME A DISCOUNT.
  • 00:14:59.190 --> 00:15:00.270
  • FOR $45.000, I COULD GET
  • 00:15:00.270 --> 00:15:03.080
  • THESE BOOKS PRINTED UP.
  • 00:15:03.080 --> 00:15:04.170
  • SO, WE GAVE HIM THE MONEY,
  • 00:15:04.170 --> 00:15:05.290
  • AND IT TURNED OUT
  • 00:15:05.290 --> 00:15:06.130
  • THAT THIS SALESMAN RAN OFF
  • 00:15:06.130 --> 00:15:08.190
  • WITH MY MONEY,
  • 00:15:08.190 --> 00:15:09.110
  • WITH NICKY CRUZ,
  • 00:15:09.110 --> 00:15:10.080
  • CHARLES STANLEY;
  • 00:15:10.080 --> 00:15:11.070
  • HE TOOK ADVANTAGE OF ALL OF US.
  • 00:15:11.070 --> 00:15:13.020
  • SO, WHEN MY STAFF
  • 00:15:13.020 --> 00:15:14.050
  • CAME AND TOLD ME
  • 00:15:14.050 --> 00:15:15.010
  • WHAT HAD HAPPENED,
  • 00:15:15.010 --> 00:15:15.250
  • AND WE HAD ALREADY COLLECTED
  • 00:15:15.250 --> 00:15:17.070
  • THIS MONEY,
  • 00:15:17.070 --> 00:15:18.050
  • WE HAD ALREADY GIVEN IT
  • 00:15:18.050 --> 00:15:19.080
  • TO THIS GUY,
  • 00:15:19.080 --> 00:15:20.150
  • AND MY PARTNERS WERE WAITING
  • 00:15:20.150 --> 00:15:22.130
  • ON A BOOK,
  • 00:15:22.130 --> 00:15:23.180
  • AND I WAS OBLIGATED TO GIVE THEM
  • 00:15:23.180 --> 00:15:25.050
  • A BOOK,
  • 00:15:25.050 --> 00:15:25.180
  • AND NOW I HAD NO MONEY,
  • 00:15:25.180 --> 00:15:27.050
  • AND INSTEAD OF IT COSTING ME
  • 00:15:27.050 --> 00:15:28.190
  • $45.000,
  • 00:15:28.190 --> 00:15:29.180
  • WHICH I HAD ALREADY GIVEN
  • 00:15:29.180 --> 00:15:30.190
  • TO THE SALESMAN,
  • 00:15:30.190 --> 00:15:31.230
  • NOW IT WAS GOING TO COST ME
  • 00:15:31.230 --> 00:15:32.240
  • $70 OR $80.000 TO ACTUALLY GET
  • 00:15:32.250 --> 00:15:35.250
  • THE BOOKS PRINTED
  • 00:15:35.250 --> 00:15:36.270
  • AND FULFILL MY COMMITMENT
  • 00:15:37.270 --> 00:15:40.270
  • TO MY PARTNERS.
  • 00:15:40.270 --> 00:15:41.130
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT
  • 00:15:41.130 --> 00:15:41.270
  • THAT COULD HAVE JUST
  • 00:15:41.270 --> 00:15:42.200
  • DEVASTATED US?
  • 00:15:42.200 --> 00:15:43.230
  • AND THIS IS BACK
  • 00:15:43.230 --> 00:15:44.180
  • WHEN OUR MINISTRY...THIS IS WHEN
  • 00:15:44.180 --> 00:15:45.250
  • WE WERE REAL YOUNG.
  • 00:15:45.250 --> 00:15:46.200
  • PROBABLY $70 OR $80.000
  • 00:15:46.200 --> 00:15:49.010
  • IS A YEAR'S INCOME AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:15:49.010 --> 00:15:51.200
  • IT JUST WAS THIS INSURMOUNTABLE
  • 00:15:51.200 --> 00:15:54.120
  • AMOUNT OF MONEY
  • 00:15:54.120 --> 00:15:55.270
  • AND IT COULD HAVE CRUSHED ME.
  • 00:15:55.270 --> 00:15:58.000
  • BUT YOU COULD ASK...IF YOU COULD
  • 00:15:58.000 --> 00:15:59.100
  • TALK TO THE PEOPLE,
  • 00:15:59.100 --> 00:16:00.280
  • MY EMPLOYEES THAT TOLD ME THIS,
  • 00:16:00.280 --> 00:16:02.250
  • FOR ABOUT TEN SECONDS,
  • 00:16:02.250 --> 00:16:04.210
  • I WAS JUST STUNNED
  • 00:16:04.210 --> 00:16:06.100
  • AS I PROCESSED WHAT THIS MEANT,
  • 00:16:06.100 --> 00:16:09.040
  • THAT MAN, I HAD LOST $45.000.
  • 00:16:09.040 --> 00:16:11.060
  • IT WAS GOING TO TAKE ME
  • 00:16:11.060 --> 00:16:12.000
  • $70 OR $80.000 TO COME UP WITH
  • 00:16:12.000 --> 00:16:14.270
  • THE MONEY TO PRINT THE THING,
  • 00:16:14.270 --> 00:16:15.280
  • AND AS I SAT THERE
  • 00:16:15.280 --> 00:16:17.100
  • FOR JUST A FEW SECONDS
  • 00:16:17.100 --> 00:16:18.200
  • AND THOUGHT ABOUT IT,
  • 00:16:18.200 --> 00:16:19.120
  • THE FIRST THING THAT CAME TO ME
  • 00:16:19.120 --> 00:16:20.230
  • WAS PROVERBS, CHAPTER 6,
  • 00:16:20.230 --> 00:16:22.100
  • WHERE IF YOU CATCH A THIEF,
  • 00:16:22.100 --> 00:16:24.070
  • HE HAS TO RESTORE SEVENFOLD,
  • 00:16:24.070 --> 00:16:26.240
  • AND IMMEDIATELY, I SAID,
  • 00:16:26.240 --> 00:16:27.260
  • MAN, GIVE ME A PENCIL AND PAPER,
  • 00:16:27.260 --> 00:16:29.180
  • AND I...I WROTE SEVEN TIMES
  • 00:16:29.180 --> 00:16:32.180
  • $45.000 AND FIGURED OUT
  • 00:16:32.190 --> 00:16:35.190
  • WHAT THAT WOULD BE
  • 00:16:35.190 --> 00:16:36.110
  • AND I SAID, THIS WAS THE DEVIL
  • 00:16:36.110 --> 00:16:38.070
  • THAT STOLE FROM ME.
  • 00:16:38.070 --> 00:16:39.220
  • GOD IS MY SOURCE,
  • 00:16:39.220 --> 00:16:41.030
  • NOT THIS PUBLISHING COMPANY,
  • 00:16:41.030 --> 00:16:42.180
  • NOT THIS PERSON.
  • 00:16:42.180 --> 00:16:43.260
  • I SAID, GOD IS GOING TO MULTIPLY
  • 00:16:43.260 --> 00:16:46.030
  • THIS BACK TO ME.
  • 00:16:46.030 --> 00:16:46.250
  • I CAUGHT A THIEF
  • 00:16:46.250 --> 00:16:47.290
  • AND I AM GOING TO RECEIVE
  • 00:16:47.290 --> 00:16:49.070
  • SEVEN TIMES WHAT WAS STOLEN
  • 00:16:49.070 --> 00:16:51.140
  • FROM ME THIS YEAR,
  • 00:16:51.140 --> 00:16:53.020
  • AND DID YOU KNOW AT THE END
  • 00:16:53.020 --> 00:16:53.280
  • OF THAT YEAR,
  • 00:16:53.280 --> 00:16:54.240
  • I HAD, NEARLY TO THE PENNY,
  • 00:16:54.240 --> 00:16:57.070
  • SEVEN TIMES 45.000.
  • 00:16:57.070 --> 00:16:59.270
  • THAT'S HOW MUCH
  • 00:16:59.270 --> 00:17:00.210
  • MY INCOME INCREASED.
  • 00:17:00.210 --> 00:17:02.030
  • IT NEARLY DOUBLED OUR INCOME,
  • 00:17:02.030 --> 00:17:05.010
  • AND IT'S BECAUSE I SAW MYSELF
  • 00:17:05.010 --> 00:17:07.080
  • AS A STEWARD.
  • 00:17:07.080 --> 00:17:08.220
  • I HAD MADE A WRONG DECISION,
  • 00:17:08.220 --> 00:17:10.100
  • SOMEBODY TOOK ADVANTAGE OF ME,
  • 00:17:10.100 --> 00:17:12.110
  • BUT I KNEW THAT IT...IT WASN'T
  • 00:17:12.110 --> 00:17:14.140
  • UP TO ME.
  • 00:17:14.140 --> 00:17:15.090
  • IT WAS GOD.
  • 00:17:15.090 --> 00:17:16.010
  • GOD WAS MY SOURCE.
  • 00:17:16.010 --> 00:17:17.280
  • SEE, THAT'S WHAT THIS MASTER
  • 00:17:17.280 --> 00:17:19.110
  • IS SAYING.
  • 00:17:19.110 --> 00:17:20.140
  • GOD WAS HIS SOURCE,
  • 00:17:20.140 --> 00:17:21.150
  • AND EVEN THOUGH
  • 00:17:21.150 --> 00:17:22.000
  • THIS MAN WAS STEALING MONEY
  • 00:17:22.000 --> 00:17:23.080
  • FROM HIM,
  • 00:17:23.080 --> 00:17:23.220
  • THAT WASN'T THAT BIG OF A THING,
  • 00:17:23.220 --> 00:17:24.290
  • BECAUSE HE STILL HAD
  • 00:17:24.290 --> 00:17:26.020
  • HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD,
  • 00:17:26.020 --> 00:17:27.280
  • AND WHATEVER SOMEBODY STOLE
  • 00:17:27.280 --> 00:17:29.060
  • FROM HIM,
  • 00:17:29.060 --> 00:17:29.210
  • HE WOULD GET IT BACK.
  • 00:17:29.210 --> 00:17:31.160
  • YOU KNOW, I'VE LOANED MONEY
  • 00:17:31.160 --> 00:17:32.160
  • TO PEOPLE.
  • 00:17:32.160 --> 00:17:32.270
  • THIS IS ON A PERSONAL BASIS,
  • 00:17:32.270 --> 00:17:34.260
  • BEFORE I'VE LOANED MONEY
  • 00:17:34.260 --> 00:17:35.280
  • TO PEOPLE
  • 00:17:35.280 --> 00:17:37.020
  • AND I KNEW IT WAS RISKY,
  • 00:17:37.020 --> 00:17:38.270
  • AND THEN WHEN THEY NEVER
  • 00:17:38.270 --> 00:17:39.220
  • PAY ME BACK,
  • 00:17:39.220 --> 00:17:40.160
  • INSTEAD OF FEELING LIKE,
  • 00:17:40.160 --> 00:17:41.190
  • I'VE BEEN VIOLATED
  • 00:17:41.190 --> 00:17:42.210
  • AND YOU OWE ME THIS MONEY,
  • 00:17:42.210 --> 00:17:43.270
  • I'VE GONE TO PEOPLE AND I SAID,
  • 00:17:43.270 --> 00:17:45.030
  • LOOK, JUST FORGET IT.
  • 00:17:45.030 --> 00:17:47.020
  • I SAID, I'LL SOW IT.
  • 00:17:47.020 --> 00:17:48.240
  • I'LL LOOK AT IT AS A GIFT,
  • 00:17:48.240 --> 00:17:50.110
  • AND THAT WAY, I'LL GET IT BACK.
  • 00:17:50.110 --> 00:17:52.170
  • AND YOU KNOW WHAT?
  • 00:17:52.170 --> 00:17:53.020
  • GOD HAS BEEN FAITHFUL,
  • 00:17:53.020 --> 00:17:54.060
  • AND GOD HAS BLESSED THINGS
  • 00:17:54.060 --> 00:17:55.100
  • BACK TO ME.
  • 00:17:55.100 --> 00:17:56.220
  • I'M SAYING THAT THIS ATTITUDE...
  • 00:17:57.000 --> 00:18:00.020
  • FINANCIAL PROSPERITY
  • 00:18:00.020 --> 00:18:01.070
  • IS AS MUCH AN ATTITUDE
  • 00:18:01.070 --> 00:18:03.050
  • AS IT IS ANYTHING ELSE.
  • 00:18:03.050 --> 00:18:04.070
  • NOW, YES, FAITH WITHOUT WORKS
  • 00:18:04.070 --> 00:18:05.160
  • IS DEAD,
  • 00:18:05.160 --> 00:18:06.080
  • BUT IF YOU GET THE RIGHT
  • 00:18:06.080 --> 00:18:07.090
  • ATTITUDE,
  • 00:18:07.090 --> 00:18:08.000
  • IF YOU START SEEING GOD
  • 00:18:08.000 --> 00:18:09.070
  • AS YOUR SOURCE
  • 00:18:09.070 --> 00:18:10.000
  • AND I'M A STEWARD,
  • 00:18:10.000 --> 00:18:11.180
  • AND GOD, YOU'RE RESPONSIBLE
  • 00:18:11.180 --> 00:18:13.000
  • FOR ALL OF THIS.
  • 00:18:13.000 --> 00:18:13.230
  • I'M PUTTING YOU FIRST
  • 00:18:13.230 --> 00:18:15.000
  • AND YOU SAID IN MATTHEW 6:33,
  • 00:18:15.000 --> 00:18:17.080
  • IF I SEEK FIRST
  • 00:18:17.080 --> 00:18:18.260
  • THE KINGDOM OF GOD
  • 00:18:18.260 --> 00:18:20.080
  • AND YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS,
  • 00:18:20.080 --> 00:18:21.130
  • AND PART OF THAT IS BY GIVING
  • 00:18:21.130 --> 00:18:23.090
  • THE FIRST FRUITS,
  • 00:18:23.090 --> 00:18:24.180
  • GIVING TO GOD,
  • 00:18:24.180 --> 00:18:25.270
  • AND FAITHFULLY GIVING TITHES
  • 00:18:25.270 --> 00:18:28.100
  • AND OFFERINGS,
  • 00:18:28.100 --> 00:18:29.160
  • AND WHEN YOU DO THAT,
  • 00:18:29.160 --> 00:18:30.230
  • THEN GOD, YOU PROMISED,
  • 00:18:30.230 --> 00:18:32.280
  • THAT YOU WOULD ADD
  • 00:18:32.280 --> 00:18:33.140
  • ALL OF THESE OTHER THINGS
  • 00:18:33.140 --> 00:18:34.180
  • UNTO ME.
  • 00:18:34.180 --> 00:18:35.210
  • SEE, WHEN YOU GET
  • 00:18:35.210 --> 00:18:36.180
  • INTO THAT RELATIONSHIP
  • 00:18:36.180 --> 00:18:37.250
  • TO WHERE IT'S NOT JUST
  • 00:18:37.250 --> 00:18:38.210
  • ON YOUR BACK,
  • 00:18:38.210 --> 00:18:40.030
  • BUT GOD, WHAT ARE YOU
  • 00:18:40.030 --> 00:18:41.030
  • GOING TO DO?
  • 00:18:41.030 --> 00:18:42.240
  • WELL, THEN, MAN, IT JUST
  • 00:18:42.240 --> 00:18:44.010
  • MAKES THINGS WORK.
  • 00:18:44.010 --> 00:18:45.140
  • THIS IS A GREAT PARABLE,
  • 00:18:45.140 --> 00:18:46.230
  • AND NOW I HAVE GOTTEN SO MUCH
  • 00:18:46.230 --> 00:18:48.150
  • OUT OF THIS.
  • 00:18:48.150 --> 00:18:49.070
  • AT ONE TIME, THIS WAS JUST
  • 00:18:49.070 --> 00:18:50.170
  • CLOSED TO ME,
  • 00:18:50.170 --> 00:18:52.020
  • BECAUSE I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND
  • 00:18:52.020 --> 00:18:53.220
  • THE POINTS THAT WERE BEING MADE.
  • 00:18:53.220 --> 00:18:55.100
  • AND LOOK AT THIS IN VERSE 9.
  • 00:18:55.100 --> 00:18:57.210
  • THIS IS JESUS MAKING
  • 00:18:57.210 --> 00:18:59.160
  • AN APPLICATION
  • 00:18:59.160 --> 00:19:00.260
  • OF ALL OF THIS TEACHING
  • 00:19:00.260 --> 00:19:01.270
  • THAT I'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:19:01.270 --> 00:19:02.250
  • FOR THE LAST TWO DAYS.
  • 00:19:02.250 --> 00:19:04.050
  • HERE'S HOW JESUS APPLIED IT
  • 00:19:04.050 --> 00:19:06.100
  • TO OUR LIVES.
  • 00:19:06.100 --> 00:19:06.290
  • HE SAID IN VERSE 9,
  • 00:19:06.290 --> 00:19:08.230
  • AND I SAY UNTO YOU,
  • 00:19:08.230 --> 00:19:10.290
  • MAKE TO YOURSELVES
  • 00:19:10.290 --> 00:19:12.090
  • FRIENDS OF THE MAMMON
  • 00:19:12.090 --> 00:19:13.220
  • OF UNRIGHTEOUSNESS;
  • 00:19:13.220 --> 00:19:15.170
  • THAT WHEN YOU FAIL,
  • 00:19:15.170 --> 00:19:16.260
  • THEY MAY RECEIVE YOU
  • 00:19:16.260 --> 00:19:17.280
  • INTO EVERLASTING HABITATIONS.
  • 00:19:17.280 --> 00:19:20.130
  • NOW THIS IS KING JAMES ENGLISH
  • 00:19:20.130 --> 00:19:22.020
  • THAT I'M READING FROM
  • 00:19:22.020 --> 00:19:23.020
  • RIGHT HERE,
  • 00:19:23.020 --> 00:19:23.160
  • BUT IF YOU READ THIS
  • 00:19:23.160 --> 00:19:24.100
  • IN ANY MODERN TRANSLATION,
  • 00:19:24.100 --> 00:19:26.130
  • IT'S JUST SAYING,

  • USE MONEY TO INFLUENCE PEOPLE,
  • 00:19:27.180 --> 00:19:30.180
  • SO THAT WHEN YOU FAIL,

  • IT LITERALLY IS TRANSLATED, DIE,

  • IN OTHER PLACES.
  • 00:19:35.260 --> 00:19:37.000
  • THIS IS TALKING ABOUT,
  • 00:19:37.000 --> 00:19:37.270

  • AND HERE IS THE POINT
  • 00:19:50.100 --> 00:19:51.210
  • OF THIS WHOLE PARABLE.
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:52.190
  • THE PARABLE WAS ABOUT A MAN
  • 00:19:52.190 --> 00:19:54.070
  • WHO WAS JUST USING MONEY
  • 00:19:54.070 --> 00:19:55.150
  • FOR TEMPORARY THINGS,
  • 00:19:55.150 --> 00:19:56.270
  • HAD NO PLANS FOR THE FUTURE
  • 00:19:56.270 --> 00:19:59.080
  • WHATSOEVER.
  • 00:19:59.080 --> 00:20:00.020
  • WHEN HE REALIZED
  • 00:20:00.020 --> 00:20:00.260
  • HE WAS GOING TO BE FIRED,
  • 00:20:00.260 --> 00:20:01.250
  • HE FINALLY STARTED
  • 00:20:01.250 --> 00:20:02.270
  • USING HIS POSITION AND MONEY
  • 00:20:02.270 --> 00:20:04.250
  • AND INFLUENCE TO PLAN
  • 00:20:04.250 --> 00:20:06.160
  • FOR HIS FUTURE,
  • 00:20:06.160 --> 00:20:07.100
  • HIS TEMPORAL FUTURE HERE
  • 00:20:07.100 --> 00:20:09.030
  • IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:20:09.030 --> 00:20:10.080
  • JESUS CAME ALONG AND SAYS,
  • 00:20:10.080 --> 00:20:11.150
  • NOW HERE'S THE PUR...PURPOSE
  • 00:20:11.150 --> 00:20:12.270
  • OF ME TELLING THIS PARABLE IS,
  • 00:20:12.270 --> 00:20:14.230
  • YOU NEED TO RECOGNIZE
  • 00:20:14.230 --> 00:20:16.220
  • THAT YOU HAVE MONEY,
  • 00:20:16.220 --> 00:20:18.190
  • AND MONEY ALLOWS YOU
  • 00:20:18.190 --> 00:20:20.090
  • TO TOUCH PEOPLE'S LIVES,
  • 00:20:20.090 --> 00:20:21.230
  • TO INFLUENCE THEM,
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:23.020
  • SO THAT WHEN YOU DIE,
  • 00:20:23.020 --> 00:20:25.040
  • THEY WILL BE LINED UP IN HEAVEN
  • 00:20:25.040 --> 00:20:27.080
  • TO WELCOME YOU
  • 00:20:27.080 --> 00:20:28.250
  • AS YOU COME INTO HEAVEN.
  • 00:20:28.250 --> 00:20:31.140
  • NOW THINK ABOUT THIS.
  • 00:20:31.140 --> 00:20:33.100
  • YOU HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:20:33.100 --> 00:20:34.190
  • TO TAKE SOMETHING
  • 00:20:34.190 --> 00:20:35.170
  • THAT IS TEMPORARY;
  • 00:20:35.170 --> 00:20:37.000
  • MONEY IS TEMPORARY.
  • 00:20:37.000 --> 00:20:38.120
  • IN HEAVEN, WE DON'T USE MONEY.
  • 00:20:38.120 --> 00:20:41.100
  • I SAW A LITTLE CARTOON ONCE,
  • 00:20:41.100 --> 00:20:42.290
  • ABOUT A GUY THAT, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:20:42.290 --> 00:20:44.030
  • SHOWED UP AT THE PEARLY GATES
  • 00:20:44.030 --> 00:20:46.060
  • AND THE ANGEL...
  • 00:20:46.060 --> 00:20:46.250
  • HE HAD TWO SUITCASES LIKE THIS,
  • 00:20:46.250 --> 00:20:48.180
  • AND THE ANGEL SAYS,
  • 00:20:48.180 --> 00:20:49.070
  • WHAT DO YOU HAVE IN THERE?
  • 00:20:49.070 --> 00:20:50.120
  • AND HE OPENED IT UP
  • 00:20:50.120 --> 00:20:51.230
  • AND THERE WAS ALL OF
  • 00:20:51.230 --> 00:20:52.160
  • THIS GOLD BULLION THAT HE HAD
  • 00:20:52.160 --> 00:20:54.180
  • IN HIS SUITCASES
  • 00:20:54.180 --> 00:20:55.160
  • AND THE ANGEL SAID,
  • 00:20:55.160 --> 00:20:56.130
  • WHY DID YOU BRING PAVEMENT
  • 00:20:56.130 --> 00:20:57.290
  • UP HERE?
  • 00:20:57.290 --> 00:20:59.260
  • YOU KNOW, GOLD, TO US,
  • 00:20:59.260 --> 00:21:01.190
  • IS EXPENSIVE
  • 00:21:01.190 --> 00:21:02.180
  • AND IT'S MONEY,
  • 00:21:02.180 --> 00:21:03.120
  • BUT IN HEAVEN,
  • 00:21:03.120 --> 00:21:04.050
  • GOD PAVES THE STREETS
  • 00:21:04.050 --> 00:21:06.110
  • WITH TRANSPARENT GOLD.
  • 00:21:06.110 --> 00:21:08.250
  • MONEY DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING
  • 00:21:08.250 --> 00:21:10.070
  • IN ETERNITY.
  • 00:21:10.070 --> 00:21:11.150
  • SO, MONEY IS ONLY IN THIS LIFE.
  • 00:21:11.150 --> 00:21:13.260
  • YOU'VE GOT AN OPPORTUNITY
  • 00:21:13.260 --> 00:21:15.060
  • TO TAKE SOMETHING
  • 00:21:15.060 --> 00:21:16.000
  • THAT IS TEMPORARY
  • 00:21:16.000 --> 00:21:16.280
  • AND ONLY EXISTS IN THIS LIFE
  • 00:21:16.280 --> 00:21:19.260
  • AND YOU CAN TURN IT
  • 00:21:19.260 --> 00:21:21.050
  • INTO CHANGED LIVES.
  • 00:21:21.050 --> 00:21:23.020
  • YOU CAN USE MONEY
  • 00:21:23.020 --> 00:21:24.090
  • TO TOUCH PEOPLE,

  • TO CHANGE PEOPLE'S LIVES,
  • 00:21:26.030 --> 00:21:28.170
  • AND THEN WHEN YOU DIE,

  • WILL BE LINED UP IN HEAVEN
  • 00:21:32.160 --> 00:21:35.010
  • TO THANK YOU FOR TOUCHING THEM.

  • IT'S A DIFFERENT APPROACH
  • 00:25:07.260 --> 00:25:09.010
  • THAN MOST PEOPLE TAKE
