Teaching Notes
Exodus 20:15 NKJV
"You shall not steal.
Ex 22:1-4 NLT
1 "If someone steals an ox or sheep and then kills or sells it, the thief must pay back five oxen for each ox stolen, and four sheep for each sheep stolen.
2 "If a thief is caught in the act of breaking into a house and is struck and killed in the process, the person who killed the thief is not guilty of murder. 3 But if it happens in daylight, the one who killed the thief is guilty of murder.
"A thief who is caught must pay in full for everything he stole. If he cannot pay, he must be sold as a slave to pay for his theft. 4 If someone steals an ox or a donkey or a sheep and it is found in the thief's possession, then the thief must pay double the value of the stolen animal.
Eph 4:28 NLT
If you are a thief, quit stealing. Instead, use your hands for good hard work, and then give generously to others in need.
Col 3:22-24 NKJV
22  Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. 23 And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, 24 knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.
Col 4:1 NKJV
Masters, give your bondservants what is just and fair, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven.
Life Lesson
We should not be hardly working, but heartily working as unto the Lord.
Luke 6:35 NKJV
But love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.
Luke 6:30 NKJV
Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back.
Luke 14:13-14 NKJV
13 But when you give a feast, invite the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind.  14 And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you; for you shall be repaid at the resurrection of the just."
Life Lesson
Give to those in need and don’t expect anything in return.
Rom 2:21 NKJV
You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that a man should not steal, do you steal?
Rom 13:6-7 NLT
6 Pay your taxes, too, for these same reasons. For government workers need to be paid. They are serving God in what they do. 7 Give to everyone what you owe them: Pay your taxes and government fees to those who collect them, and give respect and honor to those who are in authority.
Life Lesson
Honor the Lord and pay your taxes.
1 Cor 6:20 NKJV
For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's.
Mal 3:8-12 NKJV
8 "Will a man rob God?  Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, 'In what way have we robbed You?'
In tithes and offerings.  9 You are cursed with a curse, For you have robbed Me, Even this whole nation.
10 Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this," Says the Lord of hosts,  "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven  And pour out for you such b lessing  That there will not be room enough to receive it.   11 "And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes,  So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground,  Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field," Says the Lord of hosts;   12 And all nations will call you blessedFor you will be a delightful land," Says the Lord of hosts.
Three Biblical Points of of the Tithe
  1. Priority
  2. Portion
  3. Purpose
Gen 4:3-5 NKJV
3 And in the process of time it came to pass that Cain brought an offering of the fruit of the ground to the Lord. 4 Abel also brought of the firstborn of his flock and of their fat. And the Lord respected Abel and his offering, 5 but He did not respect Cain and his offering. And Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.
Prov 3:9-10 NKJV
9 Honor the Lord with your possessions,
And with the firstfruits of all your increase;
10 So your barns will be filled with plenty,
And your vats will overflow with new wine.
Matt 6:33 NKJV
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
Matt 6:21 NKJV
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Life Lesson
You only get ONE CHANCE to put Him first with what increase He has given you.
Jude 11-12 NKJV
11 Woe to them! For they have gone in the way of Cain, have run greedily in the error of Balaam for profit, and perished in the rebellion of Korah.
12 These are spots in your love feasts, while they feast with you without fear, serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;
 
Life Lesson
Be real about what you give and what you should give in honoring the Lord.
Josh 6:18-19 NKJV
18 And you, by all means abstain from the accursed things, lest you become accursed when you take of the accursed things, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it. 19 But all the silver and gold, and vessels of bronze and iron, are consecrated to the Lord; they shall come into the treasury of the Lord."
Josh 7:10-13 NKJV
10 So the Lord said to Joshua: "Get up! Why do you lie thus on your face? 11 Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. For they have even taken some of the accursed things, and have both stolen and deceived; and they have also put it among their own stuff. 12 Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they have become doomed to destruction. Neither will I be with you anymore, unless you destroy the accursed from among you. 13 Get up, sanctify the people, and say, 'Sanctify yourselves for tomorrow, because thus says the Lord God of Israel: "There is an accursed thing in your midst, O Israel; you cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the accursed thing from among you."
Life Lesson
As leaders, whatever is going on in ‘your camp’ is your responsibility. Often what we do or don’t do can prevent us from defeating the enemy in battle.
Life Lesson
As believers, ultimately through Jesus the enemy is defeated. We fight from victory and the war is won. But we can allow the enemy to have influence through disobedience to the Lord.
Josh 7:14-25 NKJV
14 In the morning therefore you shall be brought according to your tribes. And it shall be that the tribe which the Lord takes shall come according to families; and the family which the Lord takes shall come by households; and the household which the Lord takes shall come man by man. 15 Then it shall be that he who is taken with the accursed thing shall be burned with fire, he and all that he has, because he has transgressed the covenant of the Lord, and because he has done a disgraceful thing in Israel.'"
16 So Joshua rose early in the morning and brought Israel by their tribes, and the tribe of Judah was taken. 17 He brought the clan of Judah, and he took the family of the Zarhites; and he brought the family of the Zarhites man by man, and Zabdi was taken. 18 Then he brought his household man by man, and Achan the son of Carmi, the son of Zabdi, the son of Zerah, of the tribe of Judah, was taken.
19 Now Joshua said to Achan, "My son, I beg you, give glory to the Lord God of Israel, and make confession to Him, and tell me now what you have done; do not hide it from me."
20 And Achan answered Joshua and said, "Indeed I have sinned against the Lord God of Israel, and this is what I have done: 21 When I saw among the spoils a beautiful Babylonian garment, two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold weighing fifty shekels, I coveted them and took them. And there they are, hidden in the earth in the midst of my tent, with the silver under it."
22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran to the tent; and there it was, hidden in his tent, with the silver under it. 23 And they took them from the midst of the tent, brought them to Joshua and to all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the Lord.
24 Then Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, the silver, the garment, the wedge of gold, his sons, his daughters, his oxen, his donkeys, his sheep, his tent, and all that he had, and they brought them to the Valley of Achor. 25 And Joshua said, "Why have you troubled us? The Lord will trouble you this day." So all Israel stoned him with stones; and they burned them with fire after they had stoned them with stones.
Life Lesson
Not honoring the Lord first has consequences that hurt not only you but those around you. No one sins to themselves.
Josh 7:26 NKJV
Then they raised over him a great heap of stones, still there to this day. So the Lord turned from the fierceness of His anger. Therefore the name of that place has been called the Valley of Achor to this day.
Hos 2:14-16 NKJV
14 'Therefore, behold, I will allure her, Will bring her into the wilderness,  And speak comfort to her.
15 I will give her her vineyards from there,  And the Valley of Achor as a door of hope;  She shall sing there,  As in the days of her youth,  As in the day when she came up from the land of Egypt.  16 "And it  shall be, in that day,"  Says the Lord,  "That you will call Me 'My Husband,'   And no longer call Me 'My  Master,'
John 12:4-6 NLT
4 But Judas Iscariot, the disciple who would soon betray him, said, 5 "That perfume was worth a year's wages. It should have been sold and the money given to the poor." 6 Not that he cared for the poor—he was a thief, and since he was in charge of the disciples' money, he often stole some for himself.
Luke 23:42-43 NKJV
42 Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." 43 And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."
Life Lesson
Grace costs us nothing, and God is still willing to allow the worst kind of people (like us) in His kingdom.
