Kingdom Business—Financial StewardshipBy: Pastors Rodney & Adonica Howard-Browne
Publish date: 11/10/2019Foundation Scriptures:
“Again, heaven’s kingdom realm is like the wealthy man who went on a long journey and summoned all his trusted servants and assigned his fi nancial management over to them. 15 Before he left on his journey, he entrusted a bag of fi ve thousand gold coins to one of his servants, to another a bag of two thousand gold coins, and to the third a bag of one thousand gold coins, each according to his ability to manage. 16 “The one entrusted with fi ve thousand gold coins immediately went out and traded with the money, and he doubled his investment. 17 In the same way, the one who was entrusted with two thousand gold coins traded with the sum and likewise doubled his investment. 18 But the one who had been entrusted with one thousand gold coins dug a hole in the ground and buried his master’s money. 19 “After much time had passed, the master returned to settle accounts with his servants. 20 The one who was entrusted with fi ve thousand gold coins came and brought ten thousand, saying, ‘See, I have doubled your money.’ 21 “Commending his servant, the master replied, ‘You have done well, and proven yourself to be my loyal and trustworthy servant. Because you have been a faithful steward to manage a small sum, now I will put you in charge of much, much more. You will experience the delight of your master, who will say to you, “Come celebrate with me!”’ 22 “Then the one who had been entrusted with two thousand gold coins came in and said, ‘See, my master, I have doubled what you have entrusted to me.’ 23 “Commending his servant, the master replied, ‘You have done well, and proven yourself to be my loyal and trustworthy servant. Because you were faithful to manage a small sum, now I will put you in charge of much, much more. You will experience the delight of your master, who will say to you, “Come celebrate with me!”’ 24 “Then the one who had been entrusted with one thousand gold coins came to his master and said, ‘Look, sir. I know that you are a hard man to please and you’re a shrewd and ruthless businessman who grows rich on the backs of others. 25 I was afraid of you, so I went and hid your money and buried it in the ground. But here it is—take it, it’s yours.’ 26 “Angered by what he heard, the master said to him, ‘You’re an untrustworthy and lazy servant! If you knew I was a shrewd and ruthless business man who always makes a profi t, why didn’t you deposit my money in the bank? 27 Then I would have received it all back with interest when I returned. 28 But because you were unfaithful, I will take the one thousand gold coins and give them to the one who has ten thousand. 29 For the one who has will be given more, until he overfl ows with abundance. And the one with hardly anything, even what little he has will be taken from him.’ 30 “Then the master said to his other servants, ‘Now, throw that goodfor-nothing servant far away from me into the outer darkness, where there will be great misery and anguish!’” Matthew 25:14-30 TPT
1. Vow of Prosperity.
a. We, here at the church, took a Vow of Prosperity.
b. Poverty is a curse. c. God wants to bless you to make you a blessing.
d. Galatians 3:13-14 TPT—Yet, Christ paid the full price to set us free from the curse of the law. He absorbed it completely as he became a curse in our place. For it is written: “Everyone who is hung upon a tree is doubly cursed.” 14 Jesus, our Messiah, was cursed in our place and in so doing, dissolved the curse from our lives, so that all the blessings of Abraham can be poured out upon even non-Jewish believers. And now God gives us the promise of the wonderful Holy Spirit who lives within us when we believe in him.
e. Galatians 3:29 TPT—And since you’ve been united to Jesus the Messiah, you are now Abraham’s “child” and inherit all the promises of the kingdom realm!
f. 2 Corinthians 8:9 TPT—For you have experienced the extravagant grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that although he was infi nitely rich, he impoverished himself for our sake, so that by his poverty, we could become rich beyond measure.

a. Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 AMPC—Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will fi nd it after many days. 2 Give a portion to seven, yes, even [divide it] to eight, for you know not what evil may come upon the earth. 3 If the clouds are full of rain, they empty themselves upon the earth; and if a tree falls toward the south or toward the north, in the place where the tree falls, there it will lie. 4 He who observes the wind [and waits for all conditions to be favorable] will not sow, and he who regards the clouds will not reap. 5 As you know not what is the way of the wind, or how the spirit comes to the bones in the womb of a pregnant woman, even so you know not the work of God, Who does all. 6 In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening withhold not your hands, for you know not which shall prosper, whether this or that, or whether both alike will be good.
