Money’s Power and Peril

There’s a lot of talk about money today, on Giving Tuesday. And there’s a lot of money being given and received.

Money is powerful. You can use it and give it to do amazing things that help people in need and support organizations that are changing lives now and eternally. If you are giving money away today, remember the power behind charity—in small and large amounts. And God says, when you do it in faith, you also do it for him.

There’s a peril with money as well. Loving it too much—looking to money to be more than it is—can destroy a person. It all belongs to God; he just lets us manage it. He may give us little at one point in life and lots in another. God wants us to remember to trust in him for all things, not money. Because he’s the one who saves us, not money.

May the reality of money’s power and peril lead you to trust God even more today and make you all the more generous.

“Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done” (Proverbs 19:17).

“The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (1 Timothy 6:10).

We'd love to hear from you.
