Kingdom Economics Part I
Understanding the Kingdom economy and how it is supposed to operate is very important for all believers and their discipleship processes. The Kingdom economy has several components. Some of them include:
🔹Seeking First the Kingdom of God
🔹Our Careers, working, being productive
🔹Discovering our Spiritual Gifts and using them to edify the Body of Christ and lead non-believers to God through Jesus Christ.
🔹Saving and Budgeting
🔹Giving to Real Kingdom Focused Churches and Ministries
🔹Giving to the poor, unemployed, underemployed, widows, orphans, and the oppressed and serving them.
In this 4 part series we will discuss how this system is supposed to work. It’s ironic that there are believers who often complain about people going to the government for help yet the reason why that is happening is because the Kingdom is supposed to be the go-to for these things but many are not doing most of the things stated above.

Proverbs 19:17 AMP - “He who is gracious and lends a hand to the poor lends to the Lord, And the Lord will repay him for his good deed.”
Luke 6:38 AMP- “Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over [with no space left for more]. For with the standard of measurement you use [when you do good to others], it will be measured to you in return.””
Hebrews 13:16 AMP - “Do not neglect to do good, to contribute [to the needy of the church as an expression of fellowship], for such sacrifices are always pleasing to God.”
2 Thessalonians 3:6-13 AMP - “Now we command you, believers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and by His authority, that you withdraw and keep away from every brother or sister who leads an undisciplined life and does not live in accordance with the tradition and teaching that you have received from us. For you yourselves know how you ought to follow our example, because we did not act in an undisciplined or inappropriate manner when we were with you [we were never idle or lazy, nor did we avoid our duties], nor did we eat anyone’s bread without paying for it, but with labor and hardship we worked night and day [to pay our own way] so that we would not be a financial burden on any of you [for our support]; not because we do not have a right to such support, but [we provided our own financial support] to offer ourselves as a model for you, so that you would follow our example. For even while we were with you, we used to give you this order: if anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either. Indeed, we hear that some among you are leading an undisciplined and inappropriate life, doing no work at all, but acting like busybodies [meddling in other people’s business]. Now such people we command and exhort in the Lord Jesus Christ to settle down and work quietly and earn their own food and other necessities [supporting themselves instead of depending on the hospitality of others]. And as for [the rest of] you, believers, do not grow tired or lose heart in doing good [but continue doing what is right without weakening].”
