How am I managing my Finances?
Simple question, yet our hearts posture towards our finances makes all the difference in the world.
If last week’s post wasn’t clear enough, today I hope to clarify my approach to Life’s 3 biggest questions. Specifically the first one: Who is God? To answer this existentially or theologically, I start by discovering Him personally.
Most people view money as having and spending. This assumption leads to a lot of stress and stagnation in life and growth. In the Bible, money is referenced more times than faith. Of the thirty-eight parables Jesus taught, sixteen are related to stewarding money and resources. Therefore, my financial approach directly confronts my trust in God.
To understand Who God is, I must address my fears and worries related to money and find Him in those places.
If I claim God is all-knowing, all-powerful and cares for me, my life, my well-being, and my future; then why am I constantly anxious about not having enough money in my account? Why am I fearful when I make a purchase that benefits my life? What about my circumstances that provoke me to believe He is not looking out for me?
