Are you aware that Jesus speaks more about money and possessions than He does about heaven or hell? Not to diminish the importance of heaven or hell, of course, but as long as we are on this earth, He knows that the love of money will always be one of our most difficult strongholds.
Whether you are bullish or bearish; whether the Federal Reserve is on the right track or not; whether you should buy or sell, hold or liquidate, as important as financial advice from Wall Street is, there’s a much more reliable place to gain understanding on managing our money, especially in today’s economy. That place is the Bible.
The problem is, we don’t want to do it God’s way. God’s way says to give and share and provide for those who have less. His counsel is diametrically opposed to what human reason tells us – to get, to keep, to hoard. But God’s way is to spend less than we earn. (What a concept!) The world’s way is to build up that debt. Charge it, baby!
Face it. The best financial planner is the Creator of the world. Why not learn what He has to say about managing money and then try it His way? It’s always best.
