Don’t Just Manage … Produce Wealth

Deuteronomy 8:18 - “But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.”

We worship God with our resources because He gives us the power to produce wealth. The parable of the talents tells the story of three servants who received a share of their Master’s property and their reports about how they used it to produce more wealth. The three servants had this in common: They faithfully returned to the Master what belonged to Him. However, the first two did something in addition. They produced wealth with what they had received, and they were rewarded for that practice. As God promises the “ability to produce wealth” to all His servants, it is unfortunate that the third servant failed in this area and was deprived of his master’s reward. 

As believers, we are responsible for what we have received and for what we can produce. Ellen G. White writes these words: “In making a profession of faith in Christ we pledge ourselves to become all that it is possible for us to be as workers for the Master, and we should cultivate every faculty to the highest degree of perfection, that we may do the greatest amount of good of which we are capable. —Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 330. Growth in all areas of life and participation in the production of resources is a divine assignment. This responsibility often needs courage, strength, perseverance, and self-discipline. It is a daily uphill journey. However, no one has to be discouraged or to quit. God made a permanent promise: the ability to produce wealth. 

The principle of doing “the greatest amount of good” is an invitation to reassess our giving. Today, through our faithful giving, we are a source of blessing. This week as we worship with our tithe and regular offerings, let us reflect and pray on how to become a greater blessing by growing our resources to their real potential.

Andrews Academy Feast of Lights 2022

Join us on Friday evening, December 9, 7:00 PM, at Pioneer Memorial Church, and be inspired by a program of music, Scripture readings, and drama honoring the King of Kings.

Feast of Lights—now in its 49th year—is the Christmas musical gift from Andrews Academy to the Berrien Springs community and beyond. It is an evening of instrumental music, bells, choral and congregational singing, lights, and a Nativity scene.

Chorale and Orchestra will end the program with the Hallelujah chorus. The church sidewalks will be arrayed in Christmas lighting. The program will speak to your hearts of His wondrous love.

Experience with us the joyful retelling of the Christmas story: beginning with the humble incarnation of the long-expected Messiah, and culminating with the Lord of Lords receiving "the kingdoms of this world" and our universal expression of praise: "Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.... and He shall reign for ever and ever (Revelation 19: 6, 11:15)."

“First Advent Reflections!” “Unwrapping the Names of Jesus”

How precious is Jesus' name! Isaiah 9:6 says: "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." This Christmas season the Pioneer Women’s Ministries Team is delighted to unwrap twenty five names of Jesus until Christmas. A daily e-mail and a text will be sent to the those (women & men) who sign-up. To register text the word “GIFTS” to 269-281-2345
