Understanding the Link Between Money and Spirituality
A Confessing Christian’s Personal Finance Companion
About the Book
This is a religious book prepared specially for Christians so as to appreciate the relationship between money and spirituality. It is a personal finance book covering all the tenets of managing money God has blessed you in a godly money. The overriding aim is to help someone not to worship money but the True and Living God. The book will immensely help you to master money as designed by God. As you read this book open your heart to the leading of the Lord God so that at the end of it all His name will be honored and glorified. About two-thirds of Jesus’ parables deal with money or material possessions. Over 2300 biblical passages refer to money or material possessions. There are only about 500 on prayer, and less than 500 on the subject of faith. Surely, if God gives it this much emphasis, we need to take the subject seriously. Finances are a spiritual battleground. Money is the god of the world. It is everywhere worshipped. The love of money is the controlling factor in most lives. Money is deceitful. It is a lying lord, whom the world serves. You cannot serve God and money, for money is the image of a rival god. We need to be wise about money. Yes use money; do not avoid it, do not evade it and do not pretend it is beneath you. That is unspiritual. On the other hand, do not make it your god. My primary aim being to offer you, dear readers, new ideas, new ways of looking at the subject of money. This book will not teach you any specific formula. Instead it will teach you how to learn and what to learn.
