Proverbs - On Wealth and Money, Prov 11:23-28
Written by John Tsang   
Wednesday, 17 January 2018 13:19

 

One of the major themes in the book of Proverbs is wisdom on handling our wealth and money. Steve began with the basic premise and starting point that Our Wealth is a Gift from God.

 

Three binaries that explain Proverbs’ teaching on wealth:

1. Righteousness vs. Wickedness (Prov 11:23)

Righteousness (tzedakah) means doing for another's advantage what is also for my own disadvantage. It is captured in the story of Joseph (Matt 1:18-19) when he wanted to protect Mary even at his own personal disadvantage. Conversely, wickedness would be someone who would do something for personal advantage at the disadvantage of others. This aspect of righteousness has a certain leaning towards the poor, disadvantage, and the vulnerable of our society. The early church would use the bulk of the tithe to help those in need. We also need to be careful that we don’t use our wealth to give favours to those who will pay us back; this is not righteousness in the Biblical sense but rather, a form of securing self-advantage. So Steve encouraged us to apply this wisdom in our situation and figure out how we might practice righteousness with our wealth.

Proverbs – Way of the Wise, Prov 1-3
Written by John Tsang   
Wednesday, 10 January 2018 09:26

 

We begin 2018 with our study on the book of Proverbs. Almost every culture has a wisdom tradition or a collection of Proverbs. The elders of the community distilled the wisdom of life and recorded them in short, memorable, and poetic phrases. In Prov 1:1-7, we are given the purpose of Proverbs from the Judeo-Christian tradition – to impart knowledge, insight, wise behaviour, and to form moral ethical character. Proverbs seeks to teach those who are young, to deepen the wisdom of the wise, to pass on discernment, and to cultivate a sense of respectful awe of God.

Let Me Tell You What God Has Done for Me - Psalm 66
Written by John Tsang   
Wednesday, 03 January 2018 11:44

 

Last Sunday was the final calendar day of 2017 and it was an appropriate time for us to think about the past year and to reflect on how God has carried us through, blessed us, or taught us lessons along the way. So we ended our year with a testimony and sharing service with the theme of Let Me Tell You What God Has Done for Me (Psalm 66:16). It was so good to hear from so many of how God has been good and faithful to you!
