* If your tithe is holy, then the rest of your money is holy. * Paul is talking about the gospel going to the Gentiles after it went to the Jews. * The Jews were “the firstfruits” of the gospel and were holy, so now the Gentiles are holy as well. * They are all “people.” * But let’s talk about money. * When you give your tithe / first fruits to God, it makes the rest of your money holy. * Holy means - Set Apart / Devoted. * Principles for Holy Money: * It’s Not Yours - stewardship vs ownership. * Stewards have possession for not the rights of ownership. * It’s a tool - tools are used to build things. * We are responsible to build God’s kingdom. * It’s a burden-lifter - making your own money allows you to: * Not be a burden to anyone. * Not be beholden to anyone. * Be a blessing to everyone. * It’s meant to be given - the generous person will always prosper. * When you give to God you “lend” to the Lord (Proverbs 19:17). * Giving apart from a strategy is chaos. * Ex: new apt complex.
