Money, does money matter to God? Is their a connection between our spiritual life and our values concerning money and possessions?
In Matthew 6:21 we read, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Ecclesiastes 5:10, Solomon talks about the abuse and misuse of money. He says, “Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless. ”
In an article published by The Banner entitled, God’s Economy or Ours? Gert Kollenhoven, a financial advisor in Ontario for 30 years writes,
“God’s economy is totally different from the one we have created and have come to accept… It is based on the premise that everything we have and possess is only under our control for a limited time. As stewards of God’s earth, we don’t possess what we have. But often we behave as if we are the owners of our possessions instead of the stewards.”
