Dollars and Cents, Devotion and Service

No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” Luke 16:13

Ever wonder how your paycheck displays God? Or doesn’t? To your family? To the church? To the world? Our response as Christians to money should be that of enthusiasm, that I get to use this money not so much in dollars and cents, but in devotion and service.

Resource or Me-Source

(1 Corinthians 4:7, Colossians 3:23)

If there’s a gift there’s a Gifter. And if there’s a work to be done there’s a Provider. Our hands will never be the full testament of the work we do, our hearts will. The money you and I receive over the course of a lifetime will show our richness towards the people and things of God. Or not.

Living indulgently or sacrificially are all matters of the heart.

Be The Change

(2 Corinthians 9:11; 8:12)

Some of us place change in jars, and over time it adds up to more than we expect. Just think of how change in attitude towards money adds abundantly to the lives of others. We are given and entrusted with ways to give generously, cheerfully, without ever running out of means.

Our wallets are never empty when our hearts are full.

So let’s go Christians, blessed is the heart towards God, not money.
