What Money Can Do To Your Lives

"No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." (Mt.6.24).

Money is a spiritual force in our lives. It is not just a 'neutral medium of exchange' as some economists have claimed but a force that can be positive or negative. There’s power in money that can either draw us to God or lead us away from Him.

Among the risks of money are: 1) we can be deceived into believing that money is our ultimate source of security; 2) we can be tempted to sacrifice our integrity to get more of it; 3) money can compete with our affection to God; and 4) money can blind us to our spiritual condition.

On the other hand, money can provide an opportunity for greater responsibilities in God's kingdom (Lk. 16.10-12). Furthermore, it can be an avenue to know more of God and His will. And lastly, money gives the occasion for God to trust us with more of it.

Well, beloved, the bottom line here is that money is opportunity, an opportunity for spiritual disaster or spiritual development in our lives.

Thus, our theme for this month is 'Habits of Highly Effective Stewards'. We will seek to answer the question, 'How do we make it a positive force? How do we let money become an opportunity for spiritual development?' We will look at the importance of diligence in making money (without becoming enslaved to it), the habits of spending, saving and giving, etc.

I pray that this series will help you in the 'real world' of managing our finances and move you toward experiencing the spiritual upside.

I hope you’ll be here.
