How God Views Money

Sunday, May 28, 2023

It’s easy to believe that the things we possess determine who we are as humans, so we try and control what we have (1 Timothy 6:6-10). But all we have — our possessions, talents, opportunities — is from God (Deuteronomy 8:17-20). They’re not ours. In the same way, the spiritual discipline of sacrificial obedience and giving are the best way to honor God and put Him first (Romans 12:2Malachi 3:8-12). That’s why something like money is never just about money with God (Luke 15:8-10Mark 122 Corinthians 9:6-8). It reveals the character of our hearts. But God’s view about money is less about “what” and all about “why”; less about “how” and all about “heart” (John 15:9-13).

Points To Ponder

1) How do I define my life and myself?
2) What is my view on giving? Why do I give?
3) How can I have a heart that’s willing to sacrifice and give?
