The Importance of Money

Many people somehow get the idea that any discussion about money isn’t spiritual. That’s just not true. The Bible has a lot to say about finances. Some will maintain that God has more to say in the New Testament about giving than any other subject.

Out of the 38 parables that Jesus tells, 11 of them deal with our material possessions.

One out of every 6 verses in the 4 gospels discusses the right way to handle our material goods.

Throughout the Bible you can find about 500 references to prayer, and a little less than 500 verses about faith, but more than 1,000 verses that relate to material possessions.

You really have to conclude that stewardship is extremely important to spiritual life!

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”—Matthew 6:21.
