The Bible has a lot to say about money. In fact, nearly half of all of Jesus’ parables that we have recorded in scripture deal directly with money. Have you ever wondered why? So much of our lives revolves around money, whether it be spending it, saving it, earning it, or giving it – it is easy for our hearts to get ensnared and lead astray along the way. The way that we use the financial resources entrusted to us in this life speaks volumes about the true condition of our hearts.
For those of us who seek to follow Christ, it is very important that we develop a biblical view of money - and that we put that truth into practice. One opportunity to grow in this area is Financial Peace University, a thirteen week study that gets into the nuts and bolts of being a good steward of the money that God has entrusted to us, whether it be a little or a lot. I would encourage you to check out the FPU page about the upcoming class if you haven’t done so already.
