line Money

Do you take money seriously?

Many professing Christians do not. While most will indeed earn and spend money as part of their seemingly “secular” labors under the sun, it seems that few acknowledge the inherent sacredness of their riches and handle them accordingly.

If more Christians did take money seriously, they would acknowledge God as the source of income, ask him for their daily bread, avoid crippling debt, express gratitude with tithes and offerings, share with those in need, and seek even greater increase for the sake of his kingdom and his righteousness.

God calls you to take money seriously:

“Lest, when you have eaten and are full, and have built beautiful houses and dwell in them; and when your herds and your flocks multiply, and your silver and your gold are multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied; when your heart is lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God…  then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth…’

“You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (Deut. 8:11-18)
