That’s the choice many CLC’ers will have this weekend.
(For the record, I hate the fact that the Daylight Savings Time Change occurs on Sunday morning. I’ve watched for years as a pastor in different churches that no matter how much we announce it in advance, many folks inevitably wake up an hour late & when they discover that, just don’t bother coming to church that day. Or maybe they decide in advance that it will be a day to sleep in – can’t say for sure; I just know it’s historically one of the lowest-attended Sundays of the year, every year!)
But I especially am disturbed about this weekend.
You see, last Sunday I taught the first of 3 keys to having “Worry-Free Finances”. Some CLC’ers told me afterward it was the clearest presentation on tithing they had ever heard, and a few hundred people took the 90-day tithe challenge at the end of service.
But THIS Sunday is just as important to your financial freedom, because no matter how consistently you tithe, if you don’t practice the 2nd key, you will still not enjoy the blessing of worry-free finances as God intended.
Yesterday I met with our sermon-planning team of about 10 pastors & leaders, as we do each Tuesday, to discuss this Sunday’s message. More than one of those leaders told me afterward that they were going home to discuss some changes with their spouse to improve their finances. I know this Sunday’s teaching WILL help folks who want to get out of debt and enjoy life as God intended.
But before we can get to that teaching, we have to choose to lose an hour of sleep on Saturday night (or go to bed an hour earlier, which takes even more discipline).
Which will it be for YOU? An hour’s sleep, or 75-minutes at CLC that could change your entire financial future? It’s your choice.
