Who says the Bible doesn’t say anything about how to handle our money? This just isn’t true. In fact, Jesus makes it pretty clear that we are called to be good stewards in how we handle our “treasures”.
Matt. 6:19-21 “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”
The temptation for all of us to is to live our lives striving to obtain as much money as possible for the benefit of ourselves. Basically, that is the definition of GREED. We all know that greed never leaves anyone happy, but only longing for more. One may have a lot of money in worldly possessions, yet they left POOR in happiness, never finding anything to fulfill their emptiness.
Instead, Jesus challenges all of us to live GENEROUSLY by investing in
those things that are eternally impactful. In other words, invest in such things that help bring lost and hurting people to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Randy Alcorn writes in his book, Money, Possessions, and Eternity, “One day everyone must answer these three questions: Where did it all go? What did I spend it on? What has been accomplished for eternity through my use of all this wealth?”
Today, let your heart be generous for the eternal benefit of others with the treasures God has blessed with. After all, it’s all His anyway!
