Do You Love God Or Only The Blessings God Gives?

Walking In God’s Favor: The Lord will open up the heavens. That’s where He stores His riches. He will send rain on your land at just the right time. He’ll bless everything you do. You will lend money to many nations. But you won’t have to borrow from any of them. The Lord your God will make you leaders, not followers. Pay attention to His commands that I’m giving you today. Be careful to follow them. Then you will always be on top. You will never be on the bottom. Deuteronomy 28: 12,13 NIRV

Level I Stewards Walk By Faith And Not By Sight

North America  is one of the richest countries on the planet. Mel Gipson, movie actor/producer,  earned over 350 million dollars from the movie The Passion of  Christ. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest women of color in the world.

Such enormously powerful income can support lavish lifestyles, magnificent mansions, awesome automobiles, exotic vacations, as well as unlimited shopping for designer clothes and luxury personal items. The media is more than willing to make known to you the lifestyle of the rich and famous.

Your Love For God Can Sometimes Pivot To Only The Blessings God Gives

Unfortunately, many of you believe that anything less than  excessive luxury is equivalent to poverty. If your goal is the Hollywood style of prosperity, more than likely that is something you will probably never reach. The bling bling life style of professional athletes and recording artists influence many of you, young and old to get rich, or die trying.

Level I Stewards believe there is a difference between riches and wealth. You can become rich without God in your life. You can easily find unethical Wall Street Bankers, greedy CEO’s, drug dealers and pornography pimps who are rich. That’s because riches are material possessions.

Level I Stewards Measure Wealth By Who You Are Not What You Have

On the other hand wealth is obtained through spiritual wisdom, character development, and the observance of Godly principles. You should not worry or focus all your time on getting rich. But instead, focus on loving God with all your heart, with all your mind, and with all your soul. It is He who gives you the power to obtain wealth.

God will take care of your needs according to His riches in glory.  God loves you more that anyone, and His plan for your life is greater than anything you could ever dream or imagine.

Prayer of Blessing: Lord, thank you for an abundant life.

Are You Constantly Connected To The Source?

Walking in God’s Favor: I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you; plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)

Prayer Is The Level 4 Steward’s Link That Connects Us To The Source

Daily communion with God in prayer is the source of power and purpose in the Level 4 Steward’s life. In Him we move, live, and have our being. The challenge for Level 4 Stewardship is the ability to stay connected when you can have, do, and be anything you desire.

We agree with Barack Obama, the first African-American U.S. President and former community organizer when he says “Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”

Get Connected To The Source

Level 4 Stewards have more opportunities than ever. It has taken Black Americans  in the United States 400 years of prayer, courage, and sacrifice to get us where we are today. Staying connected to God gives the  Level 4 Steward a vision that will positively impact many lives and make the world a better place to live.

Level 4 Stewards understand the importance of time and managing your time wisely. Staying connected to God in prayer is always the first priority in Level 4 Stewardship. A Level 4 Steward is aware that the choices you make today will impact future generations, so staying connected to the Source is critical to the success of your life’s mission.

Everything Good That Comes Into Our Lives, Comes From A Connection With the Source

The Level 4 Steward’s thought process is to allow God lordship over your will, dreams and ambition. God’s blessings in the lives of the Level 4 Stewards will be a blessing in the lives of  others as well. God empowers the lives of Level 4 Stewards so they are an example of His love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control.

Connectivity to God is the source of all blessings and love. Connectivity to people is how those blessings of love flow from the Source into the lives of others.  Level 4 Stewards understand the spiritual process of connectivity.

Prayer of Blessing: Lord, help me stay connected to You.

Are You A Generous Giver?

Walking in God’s Favor: But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you —see that you also excel in this grace of giving. II Corinthians 8:7 NIV

Level 4 Stewardship Greatness Is In What They Give, Not What The Have

As we celebrate Women History Month we shine the spotlight on women who are a positive ray of hope by giving their time, encouragement and wisdom to others.

Among my family of orgin (Michael), our sister Vonseal’s life illuminated a spirit of hope. If you had big dreams or goals, she would become your biggest cheerleader. Even when others gave up on you, Vonseal continued to pour love, encouragement, and wisdom into you. She was a generous giver.

I can personally say, having Vonseal as a sibling was a tremendous blessing in my life. She supported and encouraged me (as a young punk kid) to become the first male in our family to graduate high school and the first person in our family to earn a college degree.

She was a tremendous blessing to our family, to a community of friends, and the world is a better place because she passed through it. Vonseal was a generous giver of her financially resources and time.  She was a generous giver of her love and hope to her family and friends.

When You Give Hope, Anything Is Possible

In our book  “Stewardship of Wealth” we describe Level 4 Stewards as generous givers. They are generous in giving of their time, they are generous in sharing of their talents, and they are generous in giving of their financial resources. Many of you have people in your lives or know someone who embodies the spirit of generous giving.

Ardella and I can personally acknowledge, whatever we give generously and cheerfully to God, He multiplies it back to us in so many ways. Jesus said in Luke 6:38 “Give and it will be given to you. A measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap”. We are passionate about sharing our Financial Peace journey with meaningful others.

Give More To The World, Than The World Gives To You

Level 4 stewards are not only generous givers, they are motivated out of their love for God and for people. The heart of the faithful steward says, “All that I have is Yours, Lord.” When you choose to give because of your love for God, He pours His favor all over your life. If you are seeking God’s favor all over your life, begin giving generously from a place of love.

As faithful stewards, you are examples all day, everyday, no excuses of God’s sustainable love for you. God loves you so much, He generously gave up His Son. His Son, Jesus Christ, loves you so much, He generously gave up His life. What are you willing to generously give up to make a difference in the lives of others and the world?

Prayer of Blessing: Lord empower us with Your spirit of generous giving.

Do You Have The Heart of A Level 4 Steward?

Walking in God’s Favor: Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.  Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share. 1 Timothy 6:17,18 NKJV

Level 4 Stewards Must Become Good Servants

To think like a Level 4 steward requires a change of heart. A Level 4 steward thinks more of how you can serve others rather than yourself. Once you have acquired a servant’s heart, you no longer focus so much on your own needs, but turn your heart to the needs of others.

I clearly remember walking into my office years ago, as a millennial insurance agent, disappointed for not obtaining the sales goals I had planned for the week. I knocked on Mr. Hundley Batts’  door and asked if I could speak to him for a moment. “Mr.  Batts”, I said, “I have been out selling all day long and  cannot find anyone to sell insurance to.”

Hundley Batts replied, “That’s your problem, Son.  Find people you can serve.” Those five words, ” Find people you can serve.” changed my whole entire paradigm on how I operate my business. These days, eighty percent of my business comes from referral business of people who value my time, business & insurance intelligence, and the value added services we offer.

Level 4 Stewardship Is Beyond You, If Serving Is Beneath You

Level 4 Stewardship is one of the best ways to describe the heart of a servant. Many faithful stewards begin their spiritual discovery as servants, however they end up as  celebrities. They become addicted to the spotlight, unaware that constantly being in the lime light can blind you.

There are four areas of life the Level 4 Steward will primarily focus:

#1 How you care for your body(temple)

#2 How you invest your time

#3 How you develop your talents or gifts

#4 How you manage your treasure (financial assets)

Level 4 Stewards Serve Those They Lead

Michael J. Vance and Hundley Batts

This is a holistic approach to serving. God wants all of you – not just little pieces of you.  Level 4 Stewards accept the truth that God owns it all, and we are only caretakers, managers, and apprentices . They think like servants, not like owners.

Can you be trusted with wealth, power, and social capital? The heart of the Level 4 Steward is in giving service to God. Level 4 Stewards make sure their lives honor God, and their life work leaves the planet a much better place to live.

Prayer of Blessing: Lord, empower us to live as faithful stewards, serving others.

Does Love Motivate Your Decisions?

Walking in God’s favor: Love God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 20:27 NIV

God gives you people to love and things to use, not things to love and people to use.

We have discovered in our spiritual journey that God’s nature is love. He only desires what is best for our good and His glory. He gives us each the freedom to discover His loving nature. He allows each of us freedom of choice to experience His love.

Our Creator has a plan and purpose for each of our lives. He is calling each of us to a higher level of stewardship. I love what the book of Jeremiah says in chapter 29 verse 11. “I know the plans I have for you, declare the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans for hope and a future”. That is the kind of loving God we choose to serve and love. We know He has everything under control. When we learned to let go and let God, that’s when things started happening.

Love is being seen, known, and loved as the person you really are.

I remember when I began the process of looking for a life partner. I prayed that the woman that` I planned to marry would be someone who truly loved God. That she would be someone I could spiritually connect with. I was raised in a home where I observed my parents praying to God together, worshipping God together, and trusting in God together. That appeared to be a top priority in their relationship and I wanted that in mine.

I thank God everyday for bringing Ardella into my life. Every place I have allowed Ardella to touch in my life has turned to gold. I have prospered in my spiritual life, my family life, my financial life, and my professional life. Over the many years together, God has blessed our marriage, our family, and our lives as we continue to grow more in love with God as well as with each other.

If only you knew, how much God loves you. No one or nothing can change God’s Love for you.

We encourage and challenge each of you to make intimacy with God your top priority. God is faithful. He loves each of you with an unending love. There are no boundaries to his love for each of you.

Prayer of blessings: Lord, thank You for Your love.

Are You Willing To Grow To Your Highest Potential?

Walking in God’s favor: No prolonged infancies among us, please. We’ll not tolerate babes in the woods, small children who are an easy mark for impostors. God wants us to grow up, to know the whole truth and tell it in love—like Christ in everything. We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love. Ephesians 4:15-16 Message Bible

Step Out On Faith And Walk Into Your Destiny

The truth is, we all have areas in our lives that we need to grow in. Your area of growth is probably different from my area of growth. We must truthfully acknowledge our area of weakness and face it.

My truth is I waste  far too much time watching TV, surfing the internet and on social media.  After reading Rick Warren’s book “The Purpose Driven Life ” I was motivated to initiate 3 immediate changes in my life.

1. I  would begin to limit the amount of television, internet and social media I consumed.

2. I would spend the best time of my day in prayer, reading my bible or something positive.

3. I would release my spiritual side and invest time growing my inner man.

Discover Who God Says You Are, Become That Person

My purpose was to seek the highest potential for my life. It has made an incredible difference. After making these 3 seemingly small changes, I have been motivated to write this blog, self-published several books with Ardella, and produced 3 Keys To A Healthy Marriage, an 8-Part Web Series for newly married couples. Our purpose is to share the goodness of God in our lives with our family, friends, and meaningful others.  I choose to invest my time and develop my talents wisely.

Level 4 Stewards are willing to do whatever it takes reach their highest potential. Are you willing to do your part? Yes, you have an extremely important role in your spiritual journey.  You are called for a moment like this in time. You are given unique gifts to develop over your lifetime and you have an assignment or  purpose that you have the potential to fulfill.

Prayer of blessing: Lord, teach us to become our best self.

Is Giving A Part Of Your Spiritual DNA?

Walking In God’s Favor: Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back. Luke 6:38 NLT

The Soul That Gives Gathers

Why does it feel so good deep down inside when you give? The Word of God says it is better to give than to receive. Giving is optional. You choose to give or not to give. When you choose to give, it touches the very essence of your soul and pleases God.

Level 4 stewards give wisely of their time, talents or spiritual gifts and their financial resources so that their choices will honor God.  They are so connected to the Source, that they have learned to set boundaries that helps them grow spiritually.

A Person’s True Wealth Is the Goodness They Give In The World

Is it possible to give too much time and energy pursuing material riches? Jesus the CEO of the universe tells the story of a business man who was prospering financially.

All his time and energies were preoccupied with how to manage his overflow. Can you imagine having so much wealth that you, your children,  your grandchildren, your great grandchildren and your great great grandchildren could not spend it all in a lifetime?

Jesus calls this business man a fool because he did not recognize his soul was bankrupt and his spiritual life was in debt. This obviously successful entrepreneur was blinded by his addiction for more and more wealth.

Your Giving Should Inspire Others To Give

We believe Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffet all recognize that stewardship is a matter of the soul. Where you spend you time, share your talents or spiritual gifts  and give your financial support tells the world what is important to you.

We personally believe that God blesses you so that you can be a blessing to others. We want to encourage you to make giving a part of your spiritual DNA today. You will be amazed at what God will grow in your life when you sow into the lives of meaningful  others. It’s a matter of the soul.

Prayer of Blessing: Lord we thank You for the spirit of giving.

Have You Made Saving A Top Priority?

Walking in God’s Favor: But don’t begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first getting estimates and then checking to see if he has enough money to pay the bills? Otherwise he might complete only the foundation before running out of funds. And then how everyone would laugh! Luke 14:28-29 TLB

To Enjoy Your Golden Years Tomorrow; Save More Today

You must begin with the end in mind. If you plan to become faithful stewards of your wealth in this life you must be willing to pay the price. You are going to have to develop the habit of saving.

Years ago, Ardella and I began planning to save a certain amount of money from our income so that we could have the flexibility to follow our dreams,  passions and opportunities in life during our golden years.

One of our passions is sharing real life experiences with newly married and engaged couples. We share practical tips we have learned in our own marriage and from other married couples like Les and Leslie Parrott www.lesandleslie.com who also enjoy their marriage and have a passion for mentoring married couples.

It’s Never Too Late To Pursuit Your Financial Dreams

Let’s face it, as you gracefully age, you generally have less energy and your health slowly begins to decline. As a result, you need to manage the amount of physical activity and maximize the results, so you don’t injure or prematurely kill yourself.  In other words, you have to work smarter not harder.

While you are young and healthy you must develop the practice of planning for your golden years. Otherwise, your golden years will not be so golden.  Many employers are no longer contributing or providing retirement plans for their employees. Therefore you must become personally proactive in saving and investing money for your golden years.

With that in mind, what is your plan? Do you have an emergency fund for the storms of life that are sure to come if you live long enough? Have you begun setting aside money for your golden years?

Practicing The Joseph Principle 

The Joseph principle is the ability to look around the corner and anticipate life’s challenges you may or may not face one day.  In the Bible, Joseph wisely counseled Pharaoh in the book of Genesis to plan and prepare for the future.

And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming and store up grain under the authority of  Pharaoh  and let them keep food in the cities. Then the food shall be as a reserve for the land for seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt that the land may not perish during the famine.” Genesis 41:35,36  (NKJV)

Joseph was divinely given the principle of saving for the storms of life, and saved the entire Egyptian nation and his family.   There are many lessons you can learn and practice in your life from the Joseph principle. Most importantly; Begin with the end in mind.

Prayer of Blessing: Lord help us to plan wisely for our future.

Do You Put People Before Possessions?

Walking in God’s favor: Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. Proverbs 11:4 (NIV)

Some People Use People and Love Money, Instead of Loving People and Using Money

We Christians in America have become so materialistic in our thinking. You have probably heard someone say, ” The one who dies with the most toys wins.” or “The one with the gold makes the rules.”

The things in this world are temporal, but the things of God are eternal.  I believe Jesus Christ is returning for a people – not possessions. So, what are you doing to build intimate relationships with those you love? How are you investing your financial resources to better your relationship with God and meaningful others?

Money Does Not Change People, It Only Exposes Them

When you develop intimate relationships, you do it one-to-one. Your attention is focused on one person. Their needs become your priority. Dr David and Teresa Ferguson, co-authors of Intimate Encounters says, “Intimate relationships take time and communication.”

Ardella and I recently returned from a 10-day camping adventure to the New England states to celebrate 38 years of marriage. We began planning months in advance what we wanted to experience. We planned how much it would cost to fly Ardella to Portland, Maine and for me to drive up with all our camping equipment. We discussed the weather conditions and what would be the ideal time to travel. We mapped out ten different State Parks and KOA’s that we would camp each night during our adventure. We planned what food we would take on the road and what places we would stop for a meal. The idea was for both of us to enjoy one another and create meaningful memories of celebrating our life together.

This includes sharing one’s feelings, putting one another first, sympathetic listening, and caring for one another. Sharing your heart with family and having meaningful relationships with others is what life is truly about. Life is meant to be shared. Sharing the love of  God with those we care about is priority for the Level 4 Steward.

Don’t Expect Loyalty From People Who Will Do Anything For Money

There is nothing like the power of your own life story. Everyone has a story to tell.  How are you being blessed today? Sharing your life experiences with others encourages them and gives them hope.  Tell others how you have overcome life’s struggles; how your faith brings stability in your life; how living by biblical principles gives you the wisdom to look around the corner to prepare for the storms of life. And finally, tell others of your spiritual discovery for your life’s work.

Prayer of blessing: Lord help me to value meaningful relationships.

Do You Give From The Heart?

Walking In God’s Favor: Each of you should give whatever you have decided. You shouldn’t be sorry that you gave or feel forced to give, since God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 GW

Only By Giving Are You Able to Receive More Than You Already Have

Hundley Batts & Associates Insurance Agency makes a donation to “Hands On The Wheel” a non-profit distracted awareness community organization. For more information call 256-347-0267 or email Suzette Kendall@aol.com: https://www.cullmantribune.com/…/05/in-remembrance-of-jay/

Why would God say He loves a cheerful giver? Giving is an emotional experience that involves the heart.  The Word of God says that where your treasures are, that’s where your heart will be also. You must make giving a part of your day to day Christian experience. Here’s how to start.

  • Pray…Ask for God’s power to change your heart. David asked  God for a clean heart. Only God has the ability to change hearts. God can transform your thinking if you give Him permission.
  • Seek…Discover God’s wisdom in His Word. Turn off the TV,  iPad, cell phone and unplug. Get into a regular Bible study group. How can you walk in God’s wisdom if you rarely read His divine road map?
  • Fellowship…Rub shoulders with people who are generous givers of their time, talents, treasure (money) & temple(body) in honor of God. Hang around people who live a stewardship lifestyle and are great examples of faithfulness.
  • Share…Tell your experience to others of how God has blessed your faithfulness. Many times you do not realize God is all you need, until God is all you got.

Real Giving Happens When You Give From The Heart

People can give more when they are not in bondage to debt and credit cards.  It is difficult to give cheerfully to the Kingdom when you have overextended yourself financially. Learn to say “No” to the person in the mirror and “Yes” to the Giver & Creator of life.

Two Hearts, One Love, Sharing Life Together.
