11 Jesus said to him…“go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me." When the young man heard this he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. And Jesus said to his disciples, "Truly, I say to you, only with difficulty will a rich person enter the kingdom of heaven…it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God." (Matthew 19:21-24)

14 Divine Heart Surgery God Owns Everything; We Manage His Money The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof (Ps. 24:1) The silver is Mine and the gold is Mine declares the Lord Almighty (Hag. 2:8) Remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth (Deut. 8:18)

15 Divine Heart Surgery Our Heart Goes Where We Allocate God’s Money Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth…but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven… For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)

16 Divine Heart Surgery Tithing Proves Our Love For God & What He Loves See that you excel is this grace also. I say this not as a command, but to prove… that your love is genuine (2 Cor. 8:7-8) Give proof before the churches of your love (2 Cor. 8:24) Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her (Eph. 5:25)

17 Divine Heart Surgery Giving Conforms Us To Jesus And Frees Us From Idolatry For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you by His poverty might become rich (2 Cor. 8:9) You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way…producing thanksgiving to God (2 Cor. 9:11)

18 A Generous Heart Declares the Gospel You will be enriched in every way to be generous in every way, which through us will produce thanksgiving to God. For the ministry of this service is not only supplying the needs of the saints but is also overflowing in many thanksgivings to God…. They will glorify God because of your submission flowing from your confession of the gospel of Christ, and the generosity of your contribution…because of the surpassing grace of God upon you. Thanks be to God for His inexpressible gift! (2 Corinthians 9:11-15)
