Cultivating a Biblical Perspective on Money, Wealth, and Possessions
Money is a part of life. Often our circumstances influence how we feel about it. Some of us experience anxiety and worry about not having enough, others find our self-worth in how much money we make, and still, others of us share what we have generously. Our situations are all different. Whether we’re struggling to make ends meet or scraping by; whether we have enough, or even have plenty, we want our Christian faith to inform how we relate to our money and what we do with it. In this Groundwork series, we’ll study Scripture passages from the Old and New Testaments to better understand how God desires us to think about, relate to, and use our money and possessions. Since we can’t avoid questions about money in our lives, let’s cultivate a biblical perspective on our finances that will help us honor God with what we have. Together, we’ll learn to trust in God’s provision, guard our hearts against the ways the devil can use money to tempt us, and experience the contentment and flourishing that God desires for us in all circumstances of our daily lives.
