Christians need to be making an impact in our country in five areas; physically, mentally, socially, spiritually and financially.
One of the biggest complaints I hear out of businesses is that some Christians are lousy businessmen and women and are always late paying their bills. Maybe this is why we all want to believe in prosperity so much.
Maybe it’s because Christians play the lottery more than they tithe and trust God.
Nevertheless, if we’re going to make an impact on our culture and society, we’ve got to be more determined and resolute to become financial experts and examples.
Who is the wealthiest Christian you know. You’ve heard of Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, but exactly who is the Christian that we can point to that understands money? Hard to answer isn’t it. I frankly don’t know the answer to that question.
We as believers ought to be striving to be the best at financial dealings, responsibility and ingenuity. We can rely and trust the wisdom of God to give us the greatest and best direction anyone could and can get.
We need to be teaching our children and our grandchildren the same thing.
Money is the god of this world. Money makes things happen and the same is true of ministry. Money follows ministry as I heard someone say.
The world ought to be going to Christians to get financial advice. The church ought to be the leader in the financial world.
Here’s something to think about. If we all had the attitude of watching our financial testimony and doing the best one could possibly do, how do you think the world would be today if believers ran the financial markets? I think different.
Let’s impact our community and country in the area of finances for the cause of Christ
That’s what I think about it.
