God, Money, and You
There are many things in life that compete for our attention like work, entertainment, education, faith, and
family, but few are as strong as the pursuit of money. The reason for that is we believe if we have enough
money, then we can experience life to the fullest; we can pursue our wants and dreams in life unhindered. But
Christ tells us that life consists of more than what we can acquire with money.
For the next 3-4 weeks, I will be discussing some of the key things the Bible says about money and how we should use the money God gives us not just for the pursuit of material things, but we should strategically use our money for the promotion of God’s Kingdom. Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth where moths and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal. Instead, store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:19-21.
As we approach this important and very personal topic, I pray you will have an open heart about what the Lord
says to you about how you handle your finances. If Jesus is Lord, then He should be Lord over every area of
your life. Pray the Lord gives you the faith and courage to obey Him in every area of your life, including how
you handle your money.
