#8 : Treat Money as a Tool, Not a Treasure

“That’s a troubling thought-one that raises an important question. In a culture that worships the almighty dollar, how do we keep from falling in love with money?

First, we remember to thank God for everything we receive. By giving thanks, we acknowledge that the money didn’t originate with us and ultimately is not ours.

Second, we cheerfully and willingly give back to God by donating to churches and to people in need. The Bible is full of examples of men and women who acknowledged God as the source of all they had and, in return, gave back a portion of what they had to him.

Third, we treat money as a tool, not a treasure. God gave it to us for a reason. We should use it in a way that honors him.”
