What else do you have to do.

You got to say regularly safe realize not everything God puts in your hands now is for. It's a lesson you may have heard all your life. Just because you have.

It doesn't mean you have to spend blowing welcome to this Friday addition of Destin for victory with Pastor Paul show wherever you are and how we may be listening.

Thanks for making this part of your day. What are five keys to handling our money.

God's way. First is to so generously. The second is to shrink systematically today. Pastor Paul talks a little further about the second key idea ventures.

The final three steps you can take to honor God in the area of your personal finances to stay with us now or listen to the broadcast on demand. Pastor Paul.Pastor must join Pastor Paul for today's Destin for victory message reading a God honoring financial legacy. I'm but in those days I need a second car because I got to California I realize I need a car will set the public transportation and going where you want know here you had the car and no time to tell you what we ask God for car and start looking for used cars to God, give me something that we can afford giving the money to test the hearts of the people who were in a prayer meeting and one day a prayer meeting basically cross-country.

They said the Lord told us to start giving money every time we come down the programming that they would have an in a whole list I put mine together and finally when they had $1700. They sit… Asked what little boys will do with some ISAP legal assistant at the Pastor Paul in California and they called me and they said can you use $1700. The store about the prayer meetings that we have gathered from a couple different churches (and it's a little story and when asked the question put it this way, if the Lord is telling y'all to give me $1700. Listen to him because he no Christian center is a brain.

The pastor there and he had me come up one Sunday night and free to Sunday night service. I give you $300 for breach of, so I have 17 from the prayerful 300 and I had to hunt… Hartley 200 $2200. God gave me a used car for 2200. It was the second worst car in the church is only bill only about 40. I was at that point, but I had the second worst car in the church.

So glad I didn't have the scar is on the past decade have the very worst, so God gave it a second worst call 10. This is, this will help somebody help somebody before you and quit trying to wear a hat on the nickel. He somebody you see me now: don't bother me. I noticed something I just don't believe the past on, to drive a Tesla stop looking at median because I love my Tesla I drive by.

No – they should and I'm with him on this message is sent way to do it.

You know Dave Ramsey has the snowball method and you take your smallest amount that you owe, whatever that bill is in you pay that often, and all that just snowball effect. But there couple different ways to do it. Treat your debt like an enemy and send me it doesn't mean you well.

So you gotta shrink systematically.

What else do you have to do. You got to say regularly saying let's realize not everything God puts in your hands now is for you to get yourself into that habit especially dedicate these points in this part of the series to the younger generation department about their seven generation to live in America today and I'm in the third of them all. To me, baby boomers there for generations under us baby boomers. I want to say to everybody born after 1965, 65, 80 Gen X and then you have the 81 to 1996 that's general Y or millennial's and noticed we just always say the young people, millennial's neck like they were the same young people anymore and a middle-aged I know they made my late 30s. Yeah. God bless you Moses just said threescore and 10.

If you get 70 years was middle of that 35 know I'm messing with your elbows are going to get over that. So the young people are even below generation Z.

They're called in social research.

Generation Z there the people born from the late 90s to 2015 generation Z, and these young folks on me to learn, and millennial's, even though you know in your 30s. Now you need to learn these principles. I have been taught him such save myself so much and too much consumer debt as a young person to bind everything just because you got a salary. Don't look at that money and say okay what can we do this when we and how the musicians I'm always buying keyboards old lady had to get a Yamaha DXM and get this outplayed all great music to play family play ball window won't give you money. But I got to play whereby with came from.

Play your love song and bless the off going to send me to confuse what the teacher is no when you get a hold of stuff and you spend just because you got the money I want to encourage you all listen generations XYZ and little kids. My grandson is less than two years old. As I bring this message and he's in generation cogeneration. Those are the babies right now we need to lay a foundational legacy for these generation teach them by just causing money have to teach you what I wish I had been taught when I was your age just because you handle safe okay what to do with this at the mall don't the way to build your life with a strong financial footing and leave a strong financial legacy is to teach your self to save some of it you remember in Genesis 41 when God had blessed Joseph and is now the second in command in Egypt, all the hell he went through. By the time he second in command at age 30 in Egypt and he has this big promotion and federal just trust him with everything in the nation. Told him since the Lord gave you the interpretation of your dreams and interpretation meant that there was going be seven years of great fortune and blessing followed by seven years of extreme famine and poverty and so Joseph went to Pharaoh said, here's what we ought to do with that information we ought to take the seven years of plenty and store up 20%.

That's what comes up to read Genesis 41 when you get a chance store up in bowls good years and it ended up being 20% over those seven years, so everything that came in all this extra grain of wheat and everything come in and Joseph took 20% of it and put it in storehouses.

That's something you when I need to learn to know a lot about or few of us.

If any of us can start out from this message saving 20% if you can go ahead and do it say 20 bear most of us.

What okay I want to have a strong God honoring legacy I can do 20. Most of us can do 15 right now most of came to 10 right now which is no notice find some your you're going to put aside even if it's just you showing I'm teaching yourself. The practice takes something what you just got a net paycheck and put it in an account not tied to an ATM card all help you Clara over there helping me. If you tied to an ATM, you are sunk good. You will get something that feels for moment like a jam, whip it out and go to the machine. No, put it in something one of these. That's not tied to card allies.

One of the banks is a number of them and it is up virtual bank. There is a banquet you can go to the branch and put it in their so that you don't see that even when you see it when you go online and see what's in there. You gotta go through. You gotta type and I want to take this out and then they tell you when you will actually get the trying to help you not type in the money. I just know somebody will be right back with more of today's destined for victory message from Pastor Paul Sheppard, senior pastor, destiny Christian Fellowship in Fremont, California listen to the broadcast on that's Pastor or subscribe to podcasts, a Google podcast is codified or wherever you enjoy your podcasts. Stay tuned.

After today's message with pastor Paul joined me for a studio first, let's tune into the rest of today's destined for victory message reading that God honoring financial legacy teach yourself to say something out of everything you get all baby boomers. If we had been taught in our churches say something everything you get where you can't touch it easily. All all all the generations following me one of these days when I'm with the Lord and people are listening to my messages are read my books and get these principal I want to say thank God that man took the time and instead of going into E flat in the pool. He told me how I didn't want the best but I need to do is stay in a tone that just talking essay put some away and teach us of those principles. Those practices that's what it all financial leaders. You start with building an emergency fund $1000 emergency fund and what could I hurt just the other day that one word only one third of Americans can handle an immediate financial crisis of a couple thousand dollars 1/3 will get $2500 should be as because we all now and looking good design is called into target racks. Walmart we got a lady in the stars love Walmart.

One of the women in the sanctuary love Walmart is a blessed life. The first leg Walmart sometime when I see her buying things is a baby, you will get the more expensive I just know you only don't I just it meets the need and I'm happy I married an unusual woman who really does not enjoy spending my money really. I might unusual all my preacher friend all my preacher friend of the second. All that's right, God will we. I'm somewhere preaching one of the Bible's ability going into the mall.

Do you know how many people would find cool predrilled say put it away as a fun and then from there they'll give you strategies that are doable and make this thing work for you say Berkeley number four spend wisely spend wisely. You want to God honoring financial legacy. You gotta spend.

Gotta buy some things but do it wisely. Luke 1428 Jesus said which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he has enough to finish it. Preplan your spending. That's what people are scared of the word, but it only means preplanned spending.

I thought and I prepared the house. But is wonderful. It is laid out.

What do I need to spend this week in order to live my life and you sit down and count the calls count the cost before you do your budget for the month so we all will work because your coworkers always running out to the restaurant door lunch you got a sitdown count because the counting of the cost plus you're already obese putting something away. You should probably end up after you count the call saying you know what I can afford out lunches in this season of my life. So what I would do would bring my lunch in a brown bank because I went to the store counted the cost but what I needed to buy my bologna has a first name is OSC AR somebody to get let go on to the restaurant floor seven on floor, so no, get my money together and you get just as cool or what was in your brown as you do or what was at the restaurant for lunch on looking at me in a tone of voice I can make it to the rest of the day and all I did was brought this one day and let the coming bourbon bourbon and broke. Come on, you should know I shouldn't have. The day will come when if I want to go but when that day comes, I will be able to enjoy it better because I didn't have to stress financially. This is good. Just because the ball said everything must go you see them based make the biggest side so everything must go to your house, it must go somewhere where does this came to this mall to get one item preplanned in the budget set up to get you, brothers, Best Buy is dad to get us set up to get us walking Best Buy everything flaccid beautiful picture. You never saw clarity like that in your own life.

All my show will go home and watch the one you because of painful so we got to spend wisely last set aside a legacy set aside a legacy. Proverbs 1322 a good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. See a lot of Christians love that second part where we can presold that's fine. This is a truism in an Proverbs of minutes and unconditional promise. Everybody can claim that we can give you a whole bunch of money and not what the Bible teaches, but the fact of the matter is you got a look at the first part live your life so you can leave an inheritance for your children's children, you don't have children you got people who speak into their lives, nieces, nephews, whatever you got foundations. You can support God knows you got a church is trying to help generations to come help us pay this stuff off whatever it is, there are ways you can leave an inheritance at a blessed generations following what my sister died during this pandemic.

One of our early pandemic funeral. She didn't die of covert or anything but just her time to go and her relatives call Mr. Pastor Sr. Lily Ward so we don't know her and sister Lily Bates. Call me when she was gonna prepare the preacher. Her family said just want let you know she left it perfectly clear in her documents. The trust and all that that this amount of money that the relatives was hoping to get hold of.

She said that's for my church because they're reaching generations to follow.

And I want them to help you think like that. What can you do that when you you doing here in this generation impacts generations to come nephews to speak into their lives going and speak into their lives.

And then if they're working you can leave them some you just got to know you just got to determine that you're doing things that are setting aside a legacy that speaks loudly of your values and the kingdom of God.
