God and Your Money

March 01, 2021

What money?

That’ s a good question. The sad reality is that many American families spend more money than they make. That should be a shocking fact for Christians. Why? Because Christians are supposed to be good stewards of all that we have: our time, talent, intelligence, energy and possessions, including money.

Let’s consider money from the Christian standpoint:

  1. It is not sinful to earn all the legitimate money one can garner. In itself, money is not evil. It is the love of money we must resist. 
  2. It is important to save as much as one can – at least 10 percent.
  3. It is vital to make a budget and stick to it.
  4. God owns the world and gives us the responsibility to take care of it. It takes money to care for home and property.
  5. We should strive to give at least 10 percent to God’s work, which includes the church.
  6. One reliable fact about stewardship: There is no way we can out-give our loving God. Ever!
