WATERMJesus tells us that finances is a good gift from God, but like all good things, money also has the ability to get the better of us. It has a way of blinding us, and creeping into our hearts. While God gives us resources to steward for his glory, we often treat our finances as our own, as if they belong to us. However in the upside-down kingdom of Jesus, God invites us see money correctly; to see it as a good gift to be enjoyed and used for God’s glory but to be adored or treasured above all else. The gospel frees us from looking to money to give us what only God can give; true rest, peace and security.
Therefore, how we view our money and what we do with it – whether we use it to build God’s Kingdom or our own—is one of the greatest indicators of just how much the Gospel is impacting hearts.
