Money: The Proper Perspective

I’ve found that money, or more accurately what we spend money on is really just desire, want, lust, a craving of the flesh. I’m not saying that these things are bad, its part of what makes us human. However, to live a life that is entirely desire driven and only living for the moment is a life that feels meaningless and without purpose. I want to live a life that has purpose. If not then why are we here. Why exist if we are not here to love, plan and edify.

We surely are here to show that we are good and faithful servants who are in charge of the Master’s possessions while we are here. WE DO NOT OWN ANYTHING! We are simply the managers of God’s stuff while we are here. This higher truth gives direction to my life and helps me realize that there are many ways that I can help people, one of which is to tell them that they can have peace it there life when it comes to money. Stop worrying about money – plan and execute.

DEBT IS SLAVERY!

Proverbs 22:6-7

“Train [a] a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender.”
