Finding God in Finances

By  Karen O’Connor:

Finding God in finances can be challenging if you feel the Lord has not given you all you need or want.

Money, money!  Cunning, conniving, confusing! Like food, we can’t live without it, but it sure can be hard to live with it.

Advertisers lure us with every conceivable message and image: “You deserve it.” “Buy now, pay later,”  “You can have it all.”

They cast the line even further to catch the new student graduate or the retiree.

How about this one? “Your house wants to give you a vacation,” followed by an invitation to take cash from a home equity line and sail off to the Bahamas!  No mention of the fact that you’d be borrowing from yourself, taking from your future, and setting yourself up for another payment plan.

“Prosperity,” according to financial coach, Jerry Gellis, “is living easily and happily in the real world, whether you have money or not.”

Getting a grip on your finances while keeping a grip on yourself is not easy, but you can do it. It takes strength of character, a sound mind, and a willingness to stay rooted in Christ’s teachings.

“Better one hand with tranquility than two handfuls with toil and chasing after the wind” (Ecc. 4:6).

To get off the merry-go-round of spending and debt, and to begin finding God in your finances, take a look at this inspiring YouTube video on seven Biblical principles for managing your money.
