Jesus Christ said more about money than about any other single thing because, when it comes to a man’s real nature, money is of first importance. Money is an exact index to a man’s true character. All through Scripture there is an intimate correlation between the development of a man’s character and how he handles his money. – Richard Halverson, Former chaplain U.S. Senate
Where we spend our money is a reflection of the interests of our heart. Because Jesus is after the desires of our heart, our money becomes a “heart matter.” Matt. 6:21 says, “Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Where is your heart today? What is your primary focus? If one would peer into our checkbooks, it would probably be a tell-all. The money we spend with our hands is a reflection of what we believe about God in our heart.
Read 2 Cor. 9:6-15. The promises in this text are astounding!
The bottom line is: When we give of ourselves we give glory to God. God loves a cheerful giver who splashes out Jesus everywhere they go. As you abundantly pour out to those around you, God promises you will never run dry. God gets the GLORY. We get the JOY. There is a direct correlation here…and it is the best way to live. Truly, it is. There is such joy and satisfaction in living your life for Him!
What do you do with money? What does money do with you?
