Here is tonight's teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE. Join us at 6 PM (Central).
1. Don’t Be A Thief
Malachi 3:5 MSG
1 Timothy 5:18
The labourer is worthy of their reward. . .tip.
2. Be a good witness.
Do God a favor. . .if you’re generous in sharing Bible verses with your server but stingy with your tip. . .stay home. God doesn’t need your witness.
Romans 2:24 AMP
Colossians 4:5 AMP
3. Don’t be a goofy Christian.
Goofy is more than a cartoon character at the Disney theme parks. . .he/she is oftentimes seated next to you in church. . .or your favorite restaurant.
If you don’t believe people should work on Sunday. . .then stay home.
By driving on the highways on Sunday. . .you’re causing policemen to work.
By buying gas for your car on Sunday. . .you’re causing the gas station attendants to work.
By enjoying air conditioning, heat and electricity in church on Sunday. . . you’re causing utility workers to work. . .because they have to monitor the facilities.
If you are in the hospital, I bet you are thankful doctors and nurses are willing to work ... on Sunday.
Stop being goofy. . .it’s unbecoming.
4. If you don’t plan for your tip. . .plan to stay home.
Some people say they don’t tip because they spent all their money on the food. My advice. . .eat something cheaper or go to a less expensive restaurant and stop stealing from your server.
5. Whatever you do for your server. . .God will do for you.
6. Tip by grace.
First, teaching your server a lesson is not your responsibility.
Second, even bad employers are still paid.
Third, not tipping or being a cheapskate makes you a poor witness for God.
Fourth, what if you weren't paid every time you were lax on your job?
Deciding to tip someone based solely on their performance is a mentality based on works and not grace.
7. Be a generous tipper.
2 Corinthians 9:8 AMP, NLT
2 Corinthians 9:11 NLT
