to every day money management. I believe that when we are called to be faithful in our fi nances we need to make
sure this includes managing our money well, budgeting, saving and making every effort to reduce our debt and/or
our dependency on it.
As a Christian community we should lead the way in better money management and our attitude of faithfulness
in all matters relating to money; what a witness that would be to the world of God’s wisdom and goodness in us!
Can you imagine what large amounts of additional fi nancial resources would be released? This increased giving
could mean so much more work would be done for the Kingdom.
I believe that most Christians want to give but their inability to manage their money reduces the actual resources
available to them. If we truly want to have true riches in God then I believe we need to take this whole issue more
seriously. I would ask that we pray that God will give us the motivation and sustained commitment required to
manage our money better. If we do, others, as well as ourselves will benefi t from this decision.
